Special thanks to Al Lewis for creating the original template. This card set uses a modified version of the template created by Al.
Basho Fury is a quick playing Sumo game. The rikishi (wrestlers) are rated with an overall rating and several secondary ratings. To begin a match, compare the overall ratings of the rikishi to determine which rikishi is favored to win and how big a favorite he is. Roll two six-sided dice to start the match. In some cases, the winner of the match will be determined with that initial roll of the dice. If there is no winner from the initial roll of the dice, the dice result will determine which rikishi is in control of the match. A second roll of the dice and check of the Control chart will either determine the winner or provide additional instructions to continue the match. Most matches will end with the winning rikishi rolling the dice, adding them, and checking his rikishi card to determine the kimarite (winning technique) used. Some of the included charts and results will also specify how the the match was won.
