Samurai is the beloved tile placement game by Reiner Knizia set in feudal Japan. 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. Through strategic placement of tiles, you can establish your sway over lesser lords, the production of rice, and the region's religious leaders. Sometimes, though, even these won't be enough to establish your dominance, and to cement your claim, you must send in your samurai. 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.
