This issue is driving me crazy. I can't find the name if this game! I visited the authors site at tops a couple of months ago, but the rulebook wasn't available back then.
I strongly remember the theme being Japanese samurai dueling
A grid board with tokens representing your characters
Some sort of player board with tokens/cubes in different colors representing skills/attributes of your fighter
Might have been cards as well - I think you could choose weapon cards?
I do not believe there were any fantasy elements present
I think I remember seeing it on kickstarter, but can't find it now (after browsing hundreds of board games there)
Release date mid-late 2013 or not released yet
Euroish style of components - wood in various colors
This is what I vaguely remember, some of the clues might be wrong...
I know you can help me!
