Watch for the return of L5R tournaments at GenCon 2023!

You're currently browsing our buylist ← Return to Store


L5R CCG formats

Over the course of it’s life, L5R has had some significant changes to the rules that dictate how the game is played. As a result, several format variations are available for players to choose from. It seems that these can be divided into three general areas:

Ivory/20 Festivals – This is the most recent rules set which is generally a good starting point for all L5R formats.

Legacy - This is the most open format which allows for most cards in the game's history to be played. It seems that the most common legacy versions are the orinal AEG legacy format, the Obsidian Hand legacy format and the Eternal L5R legacy format.

Alternative - These are formats with some significant variations like Modern, Big Deck and Strategic L5R.

The most notable variations have to do with card pool and deck construction or "starting" holdings and gold production. Check back later this week and I should have some downloadable links for different formats.

L5R CCG decklists

As we continue planning for GenCon 2023 we'll start posting decklists for Modern, Legacy, and Ivory/20F limited. No guarantees about the quality of the decks, but here's a good starting point for any deck ...

L5R CCG tournaments at GenCon2023

L5R is back! A return to the story tournaments of the Legend of the Five Rings collectible card game now with the added bonuse of supporting charity. Players will compete for the right to resolve some unfinished storyline prizes and the privelege of winning $500 for the charity of their choice. Their exploits will be recorded in the annals of Rokugani history by former members of the AEG story team (a big thank you to Shawn Carman and Fred Wan!)

In addition, all participants will win money for charity just by competing in the event. Currently we are making decisions about appropriate formats and worthwhile charities so check back for more details as we get closer to the event date (GenCon Indy 2023 is happening Aug 3-6). Check out our facebook page for your chance to recommend formats and charities.

Some new things coming

Playccg is undergoing a few changes, and we will be a bit dark for a few days while we set all of this up. The result should be faster service and better selection overall, so bear with us!


<rawr: bear>

Anyone got a good crab deck?

So in the new FF version, what are you pairing Crab with? I'm going crab with a splash of lion, but I'd love to see deck lists. Email me!

Stick me up!

Well, stick something - In honor of the soon to be realeased lcg, I've lowered the price on Bumper Stickers to a quarter. Show your clan loyalty in this new era!

In other news

Do you want to make games? Do you know people who want to make games? I have a tool for you!


One of my current projects is the White Box, a book of essays and box of bits to help new designers make games. Well, it's up! The kickstarter went live this morning, and I'd really value your promoting/posting/tweeting about it. Take a look at this link here:

Plug it, if you like. If you tell me you did in the notes of any order I'll include a bunch of free loot for you.



GenCon 2017

I'm doing my planning for Gencon and my usual room plan fails me this year. Anyone got a room to share with a small Yasuki?

Our love will never die!

Well, tis the season. Who is doing L5R themed costumes? Send us pics!

Yasuki Jeremy on the Road

The great foolishness of the Summer 2016 trip begins. Yasuki Jeremy will be in Taiwan for a week before Gencon, then on the ground at Gencon, then visiting family in Eastern washington for a week.

Thus - Orders placed after 7/20 may ship as late as 8/20 - they will ship with lots of bonus free stuff, and I'll ship in between trips if I can. As always, if you want anything hand delivered to Gencon please email me (but note that I fly in Tuesday, so order accordingly).

Thank you for your understanding, and see many of you at Gencon


Well, I'm planning out my GenCon. If you have any l5r events, particularly "let's go to the bar and tell war stories" events, please shoot me an invite.

So where are you?

So with L5R off the shelves it looks like many of us die hards are still here - where are you? What keeps bringing you to the table?

Leave me a note with your orders letting me know what you are doing with the cards - playing old arcs? filling out a collection? gifts? Tell me and I'll include a BUNCH of free stuff!

Bulk Wal Scroll offer

We may discontinue the Clan wall scrolls soon - they are great for selling at events, but are difficult to ship as single orders, particularly overseas.

If you are interested in picking up our remaining inventory (aprox 50 of each clan), please contact


International Postage

Yes, it's that time again - Rates have gone up. I try to keep costs low, but international shipping in particular changed such that there are no longer as many small package rates. Remember - if you order $50 or more shipoping is free!

Free Stardust

All orders with comments that read "We are all the Goblin King Now" will get extra free stuff.

Slight delay

Email responses and orders will be delayed while we watch 7 Star Wars movies. Jedi look a lot like kick ass ashigaru.

Thanksgiving Loot!

I'm looking forward to stuffing myself with pie (Turkey is an afterthought, yes?) - so why not also stuff more loot into your orders! All wall scrolls and bumper stickers are buy one get TWO free - just list the ones you want for free in the notes of the order.

Happy Pie-and-stuffing day!

Boxes sold

Those boxes have sold - now anyone interested in a bulk deal on L5r bumper stickers or wall scrolls should sound off. Let us know!

Misc L5R loot

If you are interested in L5R uncut sheets, or booster boxes of imperial or shadowlands please email me at - I want to find good homes for these! Other odd loot I've gathered over the years are going into random orders - free stuff for everyone!

Most accurate name ever

Well, Evil Portents is now in stock and ready to go. You can get singles, as well as Common/Uncommon playsets. Finish out your collections and grab these up quick, who knows if I'll be able to restock this at all!

Evil Portents

We are busy sorting and pricing Evil portents, and will have it up shortly. This has caused us to fall a bit behind on shipping and buylist orders - should catch up soon!



Everything is $5 or less!

Fill out those collections and pick up old gems for 5 bucks - everything is 5 bucks or less (except a few true gems, and nothing is over 20). Grab what I have left, restocking looks unlikely.

Clan War up

Singles for the box set Siege Clan War are up - the 12th black scroll? Yogo Junzo? Have I gone to sleep and woken up in 1998? Ah well, order away.

Get your nostalgia at a discount

Now might be your last window to pick up all the old toys and recall 20 years of great L5R. Use code FFSake to get 25% off all orders from now to the end of October.

Playccg welcomes our new FF overlords

We would like to be amoung the first to welcome Fantasy Flight to the Chaos and Disorder that is L5R, and say that we look forward to a ton of cool L5R themed plastic pieces (you are working on that, right?)

We're back!

After 14 days on the road and 9 legs of airplane trips, Yasuki Jeremy has returned - and posted all the loot from GenCon! Restocks of every 20f/Ivory sets mean you can pick up anything you need!

GenCon is upon us!

Yasuki Jeremy is packed and ready - I want to make sure you have the loot you need! Any orders placed before 8pm PST Monday the 27th will ship, and orders marked BRING TO GENCON will be hand delivered to the show. After that I'm off to GenCon, then spending a week in the wilds of Alaska trying not to be eaten by bears - Orders placed after 7/27 won't ship til 8/11. All orders placed before 8/11 will get extra free stuff to make up for the delay, but hey, a Yasuki has to relax sometime!

See many of you at GenCon!

ThA in stock - preorder for hand delivery to gencon!

Thunderous Acclaim (ThA? Really?) is now in stock. Preorder now for shipping on the street date of the 27, or put BRING TO GENCON and Yasuki Jeremy will hand  deliver your cards at gencon.

Thunderous Acclaim coming

TA cards will be up for preorder as soon as we finish sorting and verifying quanity. Orders for hand delivery at gencon will be taken until the Monday before the show!

Massive restock

We have restocked TCS, LitS, TNO, and 20 festivals - pick up the cards you need to trick out your Kotei decks!

Help a Yasuki out

Ok, I really want to stop playing dishonor - but I am of course going to play crab. Anyone got a decklist I can work from? Email with crab decks and I'll credit your accounts for anything I use.

18...19...20! Twenty festivals is up

New toys! New strongholds! Shiny stuff! Twenty festivals is up here. Some quanties are very limited - and as always this is a preorder, orders will ship on 4-10.

Twenty Festivals up soon!

We are opening, sorting, and unburying tons of cardboard - look for Twenty Festivals to go up shortly. This set (At least what we have opened so far) has...slanted card distribution, so some cards will be in very limited supply. Follow #YasukiJeremy on twitter for the release, or check back.

Vegas Anyone?

Yasuki Jeremy will be on "Vacation" to the GAMA trade show in Las Vegas this week. Orders placed before 3-23 with ship on the 23rd. Sorry for the delay, and please send good thoughts that I return with all my organs.

Five dollar Friday!

In honor of my putting Geisha into my kotei deck (go with it), all Ivory rares are 5 bucks or less - all foils 6 or less. Order now while I'm distracted!

Kotei reminder

If you need me to bring an order to the Seattle Kotei, please leave a note with the order and I'll package it and bring it to you.

If you need cards for any other Kotei email me to see if I'll be there.


It's still cold!

I'm too cold to leave my house...might as well ship you l5r cards at a big discount!

Let's have another great 25% off coupon - use code ItsCold to get 25% off your order (of any size)! say "Give me more loot" in the notes of the orde (not as a coupon code) and I'll give you triple free rares (extra legacy rares for everyone!)

I'm cold!

I'm also a wimp. I'm far to cold in Seattle's frigid, um, 30 degrees F.

So - If you tell me what the tempeture is where you are, and mock my thin Yasuki skin, I'll feel obliged to give you more free stuff.


Mock away.

Time for new orders, for A New Order

It's the inception of L5R cards...

Anyhow. New set, new toys, go crazy. You can order singles here, orders will ship on the online legal date (the 24th).

$.01 Aftermath commons! $20 c/u Playset!

All of the Aftermath art is loaded, and we continue to scout out the competition to ensure that the very lowest prices on l5r singles can be had here at playccg. All the rares are a great deal, but you may want more of the must-have commons to fill out decks. Aftermath commons are just a penny! Grab what you need, or pick up a whole Aftermath common/uncommon playset for just 20 bucks!

Aftermath anyone?

My my many of these cards are rather good. We have the first wave of Aftermath in stock and ready for pre-orders (they will ship on the Dec 15 release date) - Art isn't loaded in yet, and more cards will be stocked soon, but this first taste should fill your need for the quick l5r fix.

Rememer that all orders for any EE or Ivory legal (are we really going to start calling that IE?) cards get a free Ivory legal rare or promo for every 10 bucks or fraction thereof that you spend. Buying 10 bucks worth of cards? kick it to 10.25 and get 2 bonus rares instead of one!

Weekend Madness!

We've had some site tech difficulties - to make it up to you, any order this weekend (now til Sunday) gets 20% off! You don't need a code, the discount will be applied at the end, and stacks with any discounts you already get! Madness!

Orders must be in by this weekend to be shipped before gencon. If you'd rather have Yasuki Jeremy hand deliver your cards at gencon, just say so in your order notes.
