Featured Invention at the Colorado Inventor Showcase 2009

Centuries ago in another land far away, a war was fought between two rulers of a tiger-like race.  Their names are long forgotten, but their memory lives on in this game of strategy and cunning!  Tora (TM) is a classical style board game done in the same vein as chess, chinese chess or checkers, whose purpose is to raise money for ecological concerns.


TORA is a classical strategy board game and was created by Kevin Conner.  

There are two major variations of playing fields:

  • The Long Board (17×17 grid or checker)
  • The Short Board (9×9 grid or checker)

With minor variations depending on terrain.

It is the goal of Ninja Nezumi Productions, L.L.C., to make Tora known world wide. Already, Tora is prepped and ready in 7 different languages:

  • English
  • Japanese
  • Spanish
  • German
  • Russian
  • French
  • Chinese

It is named TORA after the word for Tiger, and it is meant to raise awareness of the vanishing great cats. A portion of the TORA Board Game sales, will be directed toward either saving this great species, or to supporting other ecological concerns of various areas.
