About

Fight for control of Japan and lead your Samurai to glory in this action-programming, area-control game for 2-4 players!

Recruit samurai armies, conquer provinces and build castles to defend them, maintain control of the regions in order to win most points and become the eternal ruler of Japan!

Overview

Small Samurai Empires is an action-programming, area-control strategy board game for 2-4 players.

In this game, players play as Daimyo - leaders of the great houses with the purpose of conquering Japan and becoming its most powerful emperor in history. In order to accomplish this, players will recruit samurai armies, move them across provinces to gain majority, harvest resources to enhance certain actions, attack enemy armies to take over provinces, and build castles to fortify their position in a province.

 At the end of the game, players will score points for each province they controlled at the end of each era, depending on it's final value in the last era. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game, becomes the Emperor of Japan!
