I recently pulled my Kickstarter copy of NAS off the shelves where it rested for a year due to the large amount of negative reviews and lack of support from Ninja Division. I setup the game with my girlfriend and we did a Kitsune vs Ijin game in Infiltration which lasted too long but I had fun. Thankfully, I felt the game system was deep enough to be enjoyable, even if my team of scary demons occasionally fell on their own swords during the attack. Her MVP ninja was the Kitsune stealth spitballer who she named Teemo. He took out 5 models including my Chunin in the back of the head.

I haven't seen the clan models in a year so I was pleasantly astounded by the details and how great everything looked. The Moon cards which bend the rules are great. The ones that just reroll are very bland. The rules were pretty straightforward but we had to house rule one or two things we could not find written clearly.

In summary, I like the game! I look forwards to painting up the clans and getting to teach friends how to play in the league. I definitely see potential in the product line and I hope Ninja Division doesn't abandon the game due to bad reviews. There's plenty of fun to be had in modified rules such as one player running Sentries in the castle with the other getting 3 models only to stealth Tenchu-style infiltrate and 'takeout' the VIP. The Ronins are all so cute it's a shame the rules don't let you play them without seriously hindering the development of your league clan. I am swimming in Koban and I noticed a fan made a 'shop' which could be great for 2.0 rules. Letting you bring 3 item cards you purchased to influence the battlefield... Lots of ideas!

Anyone know if NAS has life in 2017 with support from the producers? (New maps, rules 2.0, league kits?)

All I can say at this time is that we haven't given up on Ninja All-Stars.

There was at least two new maps with sentries hinted or previewed. However, it appears almost every product line is delayed with an undefined timeline.

Awhile ago a friend and I played a league season and tried all the scenarios. They were all fun to play, and we did take notes on how we would shorten the number of turns for each of them for any future use. They all can be a few turns shorter without sacrificing the feel.

We haven't been able to schedule a re-match yet, but we're both looking forward to being able to match our schedules to play again!

I would love to see another map set with sentries.

I would figuratively kill for the opportunity to purchase more dice!

I would also jump on a new NAS Kickstarter on day one!
