The year is 1336. The 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 the true path to power lies with elite, noble warriors known as samurai.
Samurai is a much-beloved tile-placement game for two to four players by renowned designer, Reiner Knizia. You and your opponents assume the roles of ambitious daimyo, vying for dominance in feudal Japan.
Through the strategic placement of tiles, you 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 position, you must send in your samurai!
