Samurai Board Game
The year is 1336. Japan`s emperor has lost all authority and is little more than a figurehead. Across the country, powerful lords - called daimyo - have risen up and begun to claim dominion over the land and its resources. But all true paths to power depend upon the service of the elite, noble warriors known as samurai. A classic tile placement game by Reiner Knizia set in feudal Japan, players in Samurai assume the roles of ambitious daimyo competing for control of the nation. To rise above your rivals and influence the nation`s cities and villages to your cause, you must prove you can lead their people. This edition of Samurai maintains the game`s original mechanics while updating it with beautifully sculpted game pieces, new leader tokens to aid in scoring, and all-new art and graphic design that draw upon traditional Japanese styles.
