Requesting advice

Hi guys,

 
I have just started Bushido, strictly speaking Jung Pirates faction. My first purchase was Yuji. 
 
What else should I buy for a 35 Rice list?
 
How many Ki, Tired, and Exhausted tokens do I need for 2 players?
 
Thank you in advance!

Hey Shou-Lao

to be honest you can't go wrong with the starter set for Jung. Comes out at 35 or 36 rice depending on whether you use a generic Korusea or not. It has a good balance and works well. If like me you got your minis from the Docks of Ryu game, then Minato is a good, strong character to provide muscle backed up by Korusea with nets or hooks who can be commanded by Yuji. 

I tend to have 20 odd Ki tokens for each player and 6 or so (depending on warband size) double sided tokens for tired/exhausted each. Some generic tokens for the various states will see you in good stead.

hope this helps

This helps a lot, thank you! :)

So, my next purchases are Korusea, Minato Jung, and the starter set. I'll save Mari Jung and Ran Fujiwaro for a future list. I don't think I will ever use Taru, because I don't like the miniature...
 
I came up with the following list:
 
JUNG PIRATES (35 Rice)
* Yuji (9)
* Korusea (5)
* Minato Jung (11)
* Sho (5)
* Temo (6)
   + Peg Leg (-1)
 
Any further suggestions?

Duri with the twin pistols will be a good future purchase, he will add some firepower! You'll also need another frontline fighter at some point. I personally like Tetsubo (crab man), heavily armoured with powerful attack and he's gonna put the pinch (sorry) on your opponent

Nice suggestions! I will look into them!

Would Arata be a good addition? 

What about theme and special cards? Which ones do you recommend?

Arata is awesome but maybe not an early pick.  Impetuous is a hard ability to play around and you want that once you're comfortable with the game.  He's so cool though and if you look on the front page there's another shark dude!

I would always recommend filling up on Korusea and Kohanin - they're both exceedingly good profiles for their rice costs.  The Kappa also combines very well with about half the Jung profiles - the ones with Light-Footed.

The Jung cards are pretty good.  The Queen of the Waves theme gives you a 1" placement effect but you lose out on Yuji and Minato.  Black Sails is just a brute force theme for the most part.  They have a few really solid event cards: Blow the Man down, Kamikaze, and

@ GCT Master Enos: True, both are awesome, but you are right, I'll consider Arata and the Swordman after I have some games under my belt. 

@ Ret-A Palmer: I will consider a list including dual Korusea and Kohanin. Their profiles are simple and easy to remember, a good thing for a beginner! :)
The Special Card Pack should arrive tomorrow, I will look into Black Sails, sounds very good! 
 
Thank you all so much!

With all your recommendations I adjusted my 35 Rice list accordingly:

- Yuji (9)
- Minato Jung (11)
- Korusea (5)
- Kohanin (5)
- Kohanin (5)
 
To expand to a 50 Rice list I would add Tetsuso (10) and a second Korusea (5).

I realised I made a mistake: Kohanin is only 4 Rice! With two spare Rice I thought of replacing a Korusea with Duri. :)

- Yuri (9)
- Minato Jung (11)
- Duri (7)
- Kohanin (4)
- Kohanin (4)

This will probably work splendid. Yuji is a fantastic toolbox of action control with hos Order and Command. If you master that you´ll be a fearsome opponent. Modus operandi would something like: soften them up with Duri's shooting, then bog them down with defensive Kohanins (do remember to drag them out of LoS to Minato to maximise his potential) and then send in the cap'n to finish them off. Yuji´s job is to oversee and support depending on what the opponent does.

Thank you! I really hope the plan will pay off!

Ret-A Palmer mentioned the Kappa. When will be the next chance to get one?
