This is the rio grande edition which I think has much more attractive pieces.

This was found in a thrift store and the box condtion is poor with whitening ot the corners. dents, a tear on box bottom (looks easy to repair), small amount masking tape, price tag. The corners intact.

A very small amount of the backing came off two board pieces (not visible from the top during play.

There is one yellow token missing (needed for 4 player play, you have enough tokens for 2 and 3 player play)

You can use a proxy to play since unplayed tokens are secret (behind a screen) or get a replacement from rio grande

3 Player game; first for all of us. The strategy and tactics in this game took us all by surprise. Classic Knizia: easy rules great gameplay. Definitely want to get this to the table more.

I've played this one three times, I own a copy, and have not played it since 11-14. I'm a big Knizia fan, I'm a big fan of Ingenious, and I might as well throw Tigris and Euphrates in here as well since I've only ever played half a game of that. They all use that "most least" scoring rule which is something I find really fun. Need to get this to the table soon!

Where to place your tiles.

Every tile has the potential to help your opponents, so you have to do a lot of mental calculations:

"If I win this High Helmet, then I give this Buddha to X and this Rice Paddy to Y or Z. If that happens, who has the majority of each piece? Can I afford to let X, Y, or Z get those pieces? But I need that High Helmet to secure my majority! And there are only a few turns left! AAAHHHH!"

Sun, Nov 6

Next up, I made some new friends and was taught Samurai - an almost 20 year old game (1998). I played this with Chance, Dave, and Karen. They didn't often get to play this with 4 (Chance said she usually played with 2) and were excited for the opportunity.

I quite enjoyed this tile-laying game. Helmets, rice paddies, and Budhas are placed around a map of Japan, and players have to collect them. All players have an identical set of tiles, and a screen to hide their current 5 available tiles behind. These tiles indicate your influence on adjacent towns (objects to collect). Some tiles only provided influence (1-4) to specific objects, and others were 'wild' and provided influence for any object. Some tiles were 'fast' and let you place a second (or more) that turn. A really fun one lets you trade the places of two objects. The main objective is to collect the most of 2 different objects. I can't remember the specifics of the win conditions were beyond that.

Dave got off to a great start, being the first to start collecting objects. I got a couple helmets and Budhas, and decided to just focus on those. We didn't really go into the extended win conditions until halfway through the game, and it was a learning game, so I decided to just go hard on helmets and Budhas, and hoped to get the most of each. It worked! I won.

I really enjoyed this. I liked that you had to pay attention to what others were doing so you could muscle in on what they were trying to get, and mess up their plans. I like that kind of tactical play.

English, current edition (2016 I think is when it was released)

The components are in great condition. Box shows a bit of shelf wear. This was a copy from my local board game cafe. At the time I got it from the owner it looked like it was only played a couple of times. I've played it 2-3 times since.

second part of the 2 for 2 trade. This was the most expensive thing I picked up at $25, new in shrink, but the stuff I traded for it was games I was happy to trade, so I was very pleased.

Samurai seems as dry a game as you could possibly find, but somehow Knizia squeezes some beautiful tension out of basic arithmetic. We tend to play with open scoring, but open hands fell flat with my family. I can live with this compromise.

I love this game. It plays well as a 2-3-4 player game, though each requires a much different approach to winning. Thankfully this got a recent reprint so that people could "try it new". One of Knizia's best.
