    NI-SHI-KI (two-four-chess) is the chess-like board game, using cards as chessmen, and featuring wars of warring states in Medieval Japan.

    Cards representing Units (like spearmen or bowmen) and Warlords (like Oda Nobunaga or Uesugi Kenshin) are put on the sliding plates. Plates with cards are ready to slide over surface of the game board to attack the enemy cards or enemy castle. Each battle is resolved by comparing sum of strength of each cards and a die roll.

    Mixture of Dynamism (of sliding plate movement) and Luck (with rolling dice which may overturn situation) made good strategy and playability in this game.
