Players compete to accomplish the Tasks necessary to win the support of the Shogun and be made Daimyo of the province.
The Shogun sits upon the dais looking down upon the young Samurai. A hotly contested, uncontrolled province has been plagued by Bandits and the tribute he collects from it and the surrounding provinces is under threat. Someone has to handle the situation. He motions for his hatamoto to give each Samurai kneeling before him a scroll. The scroll represents the Shogun’s will. He has decreed that the holder has the right to hire Samurai and attempt to gain control over the province. The Samurai that does so will become the new Daimyo of the province and head of his own clan.
Do you have what it takes to tame the province and claim the prize? Will you become the new Daimyo?!
2-6 players, Ages 10+,
Basics of the game: recruit samurai, accomplish tasks, fight opponents and overcome bandits to gain Glory to become Daimyo.
It has a little of everything you may have seen in other games. Every game has a different starting map based on game set up. Players can decide on different strategies to win from concentrating on gaining glory from tasks or by fighting bandits or by challenging and defeating the samurai of other players in duels.
The First expansion introduces a timer. A bandit "Lord" is controlling the bandits in the game. He gains glory on each player's turn and whenever a samurai is killed by bandits. Bandits go from only showing up at Tasks to being able to show up at any location in the game. As the players must perform an action for the bandits on each turn, they must manage to gain their glory while finding a way to prevent the Bandit Lord from winning.
Again the # of game hexes increases introducing new Task locations and terrain. One of the signature legends of the Samurai is about having to face off against challengers willing to prove themselves in duels against the samurai's fighting style. A "Wandering Duelist" enters the game. He does not kill the player's Samurai but he will stop them from completing a Task. On each player's turn they will be able to control where the Duelist goes and who he challenges. Clever players will keep him away from their own samurai and ensure that he takes out opposing players. Of course if used with the first expansion the defeat of each samurai will increase the Glory of the Bandit "Lord".
