It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Excellent board game dated 1979 and published by Battleline Games, a division of Heritage Models Inc. The game simulates politics and warfare in Feudal Japan. Up to four players can attempt to take control of Japan. As leader of an ancient clan, you use military forces, guile and timing to acquire influence, status and ultimately the role of Shogun. Other clans and various natural disasters may lay ruin to your best laid strategy! Includes large map playing field (in excellent condition), four clan charts and instructions with playing pieces (all excellent). Dice are required but not provided. The game features a great many colorful parts; they may all be present, as the previous owner took good care of them, placing them in clear plastic bags. But I have no way of doing an inventory on them, so the game is purchased as-is.
