I appreciate the rule differences, but the movement constraints look very similar. If I like Rosenkönig, will I also enjoy this one? Anyone happen to have played both?

I've played and own both, and to me they feel different. In Rosenkönig I find there's an ebb and flow to the game: draw until your hand is full, then use your cards, then draw more. I find it a bit overwhelming to look at my opponent's hand all the time in Rosenkönig. In Onitama, the game is a lot smaller so it's easier to figure out what your opponent can and can't do.
In Rosenkönig you're there for the long haul. Maybe your big group got separated, but you might be able to join it back later. Onitama is quicker and more cutthroat. You have to setup your pawns so you'll be able to take advantage of the moves you get later.
