I played Shogun for the first time this week-end and enjoyed it a lot. Never played Wallenstein, so I can't comment on differences or similarities between both. Things I liked : * the dice tower mechanism : you never know what will happen, but every army you throw in has to come out eventually, although maybe not at the exact times you wish * the neutral countries and the idea of the revolting farmers * fact that you can plan you're first 5 actions and that the other 5 are surprises * the quality of all the game pieces * and of course, the dice tower itself
Played it twice now and looking forward to playing it again !
I went to Spiel in Essen to buy Wallentein but they ask 65 euro for a secondhand. I thought of 65 euro you can but much better and more. So i played Shogun in Essen and i liked it from the start, good artwork, a lot of interaction and choices. I bought it after the play and friday I gonna play it with 5 persons. I can't wait. I also made some rules for two players but i havn't tested yet. I can recommand it to everyone!
