The game can be enjoyed with up to 9* different types of stage settings, items and obstacle layouts, from elementary to advanced stages! (*Deluxe edition, if stretch goals are met)

Players use a wide variety of components, including standing ninja and specter pieces, treasure and crystal pieces, tools and weapon tokens, various cards and chips, sub-boards, markers to put on the standing pieces, Japanese-style base flags, and more!

4: Designed in Japan, Authentic Japanese Style Design

GACHIJO’s unique world is created by a visual design and characterization that blends Japanese historical facts and fiction. In the development process, we stayed in Iga, one of the birthplaces of the ninja in Japan, to research and learn about its distinctive skills, traditional tools, and history.
