Hi board game geeks! My name’s Doddy and I’m here to help you ‘kickstart’ your game collection by navigating the choppy waters of crowdfunding campaigns! I’ll be looking at which deserve your gold and which you should avoid like an orc encampment! On today’s edition we’ll be looking at Small Samurai Empires by Archona Games.
Fight for control of Japan and lead your Samurai to glory in this action-programming, area-control game for 2-4 players! It’s like Risk but, with more style and grace!!! I mean you’re Samurais!!! Get in there and have a fight bound by honour!!!
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! Pretty standard approach, take a location and dig in. Then when you’re ready push out into another region… rinse repeat, though with more opponents you have to pick your targets well and not push too far forwards.
Small Samurai Empires is an action-programming, area-control strategy board game for 2-4 players. It’s cheaper than most games, has lots of replay in such a small game, and your meeples are samurai!!! How awesome is this!!!?
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!
