I really like senji! The biggest issue I have with it is that you basically have to be six players for the game to be good. But it a pretty light game of course. I like the set collection and the diplomacy with family members that can switch hands.
I hope rising sun will play good for lesser number of players.

Night fell and the hours dragged on, but still we murmured to each other of the King and the Pallid Mask, and midnight sounded from the misty spires in the fog-wrapped city.

We spoke of Hastur and of Cassilda, while outside the fog rolled against the blank window-panes as the cloud waves roll and break on the shores of Hali.

The focus on diplomacy makes me think that 2 player might not be feasible. Which makes me sad. Because I'll buy it anyway and it will sit there looking pretty and not being played by me and my wifecry

3-6 players. I wish there was a 2p variant, but it is what it is.

What do you consider new? From what I can understand, this game has been in a least some sort of development for several years, I'm sure the 3 player minimum was decided long ago.

Just kidding, kind of. Since both bloodborne and Rising sun are games I really really want, but due to the minimum 3 players thing I wont be able to play either game. Just wish he could design games I want for at least 2 players

I'm in the same boat. I love some of his designs but the player count is limiting.

Oh well, maybe it'll help the 6-player gamers out a bit, they don't get that much love

Alliance based games don't work at 2 players, but I guess you can do a variant without alliances. I think the "dishonor" from breaking alliances is an important part of the game, though.

While we are at it, why don't we complain that it doesn't have a solo option?

The biggest issue for senji is that is good only for 6 players.What about rising sun???does it work well with less players??what do you think?

Since guesses are all we can do until more information is released, here's my guess:

The game is currently rated for 3-5 players, but will probably be best with 4+ players; I think the alliance mechanic would be weak at 3 players. There will be a 6-player expansion.
