Dueling Samurai is the ultimate tabletop territory conquer game where 2 to 4 players will utilize both peace and war for their strategy to dominate Feudal Japan.
If you like being immersed in rich, detailed, historically thematic and strategic card play, and rolling big dice to smash your opponents to conquer - this board game cannot be missed.
It's 1560 and your clan can end the 'Age of War' with fast and furious dueling and intense card play. Highly risky card play with a rich thematic element makes you a historic warlord in command of your clan. Every move you make could make or destroy your goal of domination.
We have tweaked this game over 8 years, have had hundreds of gamers provide feedback, have done a dry run with our manufacturer and are now ready to publish, with your help.
This version of Dueling Samurai will never be made again. Specifically, the board, box and rule book will be a limited KickStarter edition. Also, there will be KickStarter exclusive surprise stretch goals unlocked along the way. This campaign is the only chance for gamers to get such an awesome price for Dueling Samurai and all of its stretch goals. (Dueling Samurai will be retailing at approximately $110 and retail sets will not include stretch goals.)
Dueling Samurai Game Play:
The core game is a high quality production, with thick poker cards, quality pieces and a beautiful finish. So, there aren't any quality increase stretch goals - because the core game is already there.
Our stretch goals exist purely to make Dueling Samurai as eye-popping as possible - bringing you straight into samurai culture for the ultimate gaming experience.
The first stretch goal is...

Players can end the game at anytime (at the end of a round/decade) and use the points system to declare a winner.

Multiple game options:
Players can choose to play on only half the board for super fast games and better 3 player game dynamics.
You simply will not be disappointed as a backer of Dueling Samurai.

Risks and challenges
Fluctuations in currency exchange rates between NZD, USD and YUAN may influence what we can and cannot release for stretch goals. Backers can trust that we just want to make the game as rad as possible and will do so with the provided backing.
Having done a dry run with our manufacturer we are in full command of this project where we and backers know exactly what to expect and what we are going to get.
Although this is the first game the BigForest Creativity Lab is mass producing, this game has been battle tested to the max. Dueling Samurai adheres to maximum fairness, awesome probabilities designed to make a mathematically harmonious game. Richard Janutka has been developing games for over a decade and has specifically play tested and developed Dueling Samurai for over 8 years. The mechanic is solid and well seasoned gamers attest to the fact that this is a well thought out and fantastic game, which maximizes fun, strategy, tactics, luck and amazing story telling that plays out differently in every game. In short, we designed a game that people can't stop thinking about and will want to play over, and over again.
Dueling Samurai won't be a game you buy and play once... with tournaments already all over the world, investing in this game is an investment in culture, history and a new product that will have a lasting international presence in the gaming community.
