I played a game a while back that I can't remember the name to. Can you geeks help?

Hints : -The board was basically feudal Japan
- War "Risk style" game
- Lots of miniatures
- Name was one word and started with an "A" (I think!, this may be wrong) it was a foreign-ish word (probably Japanese ) like "Asaka" or something
- Reminded me a lot of Shogun, in fact it could have even been a different version of some sort.




Thanks guys, I have every confidence you will get it.

Well, the alternate versions of Shogun were Samurai Swords and Ikusa. Senji fits the bill too, though there are fewer miniatures.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was Ikusa.

It might be a reprint or something because it looked a lot newer than the pictures I see on the geek

Ikusa was a recent reprint of Samurai Swords.

Oh, you must not have met GROGnads yet. Charles, GROGnads. GROGnads, Charles. Don't read too deeply into his posts. That way leads to madness.

I think he's saying he found a cheap copy of the game, but the ninja was missing. He was able to replace the ninja. He even got a second ninja!
