    A game that only die hard Sumo fans would enjoy. If you've ever been to a sumo
    tournament in Japan and enjoyed it then this game may be for you. This game is
    Very Heavy on the Japanese, this FAQ is far from complete and I think I reached
    my limit on being able to translate it any further. I've been to about 6 sumo
    tournaments in Japan and I think this game does a pretty good job in trying to
    capture the sumo ambiance.
    This FAQ may contain mistakes and misinterpretations of the game, when you find
    them please contact me so that I can correct and update this FAQ. Also, please
    send additional information about the game that you feel should be included in
    this FAQ.
