I am so pumped to throw some dice around, all I want in my life is more dice, dice with little symbols.

I love big dice and I cannot lie.

I love Japanese language, history, and culture. I've been thinking of picking up a game set in Feudal Japan because there are quite a few. But there are so many other great games out there. But between the price and play time for this game, I think it will easily earn a place in my collection. It's almost like Phase 10 Dice, only with theme and player interaction.

Interesting...sounds like the main mechanic from Elder Signs...but added on that you can direct attack each others holdings. Also interesting that Reiner gets his name on it when the main mechanic of the game seems to have come from Elder Signs (which to my knowledge is a Launius and Wilson designed game)?

 

Before the pitchforks come out, I dig the mechanic and this looks cool so this is not a knock at all :)

Actually, it is that Elder Sign credited the mechanism to Dr. Knizia (for Risk Express) in the 2nd edition rulebook.

I guess no box to roll dice is planned ? (I mean a box like the one we can find with Risk Epxress)

 

if not, it's a pity because ths was one of the interest for the game and with a theme like this one (Feudal Japan) it could have been a good opportuniy to create a really nice box.

I gotta say, I am really excited about this game. The Japanese theme appeals to me a great deal and the short, uncomplicated gameplay is just what I needed (I long thought of adding something lighter to my more complicated, theme-heavy board games collection, but up until now didn't really find anything that interested me).

Hi there,

 

 

from the pictures put online I have already found historical mistakes.

 

 

-Kitanosho-jo was not a castle of the Uesugi clan, but the main castle of Shibata Katsuie, an Oda clan vassal, which burned down with him. Kasugayama-jo was the main castle of the Uesugi.

 

 

-Kiyosu-jo was the main castle of Oda Nobunaga at the beginning of his campaign and never a Tokogawa castle.

 

 

-Inuyama-jo was not a castle of the Tokugawa either.

 

 

I hope you have still time to fix this! If you need help with castles, clans and history you can contact me. Please don’t screw this up!

I've been waiting for this for a long time now. It never seems to get updated in the FFG Upcoming page. Ugh... Hopefully it lands sometime early September 2014?

Let's hope so!

 

If you look the videos wth reports from GenCon FFG posted on this very website, you see they had some copies showcased, so, I guess it's not too a long wait now!

Roughly about 4 years ago I brought a game called risk express, it's a dice game based on risk. I noticed age of war played similar and decided to compare them. Everything about this game is exactly the same as risk express, only the symbols have changed.
