Super excited to play this

5 posts in this topic

I have two different versions of Shogun and can say both are excellent. So I am excited to play this new verison it sounds good and does not have 1 million pieces so that is a plus.

I'll agree that simplicity in games can be really really good, and games that aren't messy are even better especially if the rules are still deep enough to have a rich experience tied to them.

Reiner Knizia's trilogy of tile-placement games (Samurai, Tigris & Euphrates, and Through The Desert) set the standard for strategy board gaming.

 

If you haven't already grabbed the recent Fantasy Flight reissue of Tigris & Euphrates, do it. It is a phenomenal game. I'm stoked to pick up Samurai, and I hope you reprint Through The Desert again soon!

I think you mean Samurai, yes?   Shogun is a very different game; renamed to Samurai Swords, then Ikusa.

 

 

I received my copy of Samurai recently, and I played it last night for the first time.  Let me say, it will NOT be the last!

 

It seemed like it would be such a simple game - after all, there aren't that many tokens, no dice, no cards (a true Eurogame)  I was wrong!  There was so much strategy involved.

 

Don't get me wrong, it was very simple to learn.  The rulebook is 8 only pages long, and that includes front and back covers, pictures, and examples.  But after just a single play, I  realized that this game had a lot of replay potential, and really made me pay attention and think about each tile.

 

I love it!
