Hi. I own both, but haven't played Agamemnon yet. I can at least say that they are very different games.

Confirmed, I played both several times and I love Samurai (even if I suck at it, perhaps the reason why it facinates me so much but even if they are from the same spirtual family, the thinking process is different.

Samurai is longer, more 'mathy' and agonising in the decision making, and the winning conditions are... well, it's a Knizia game more complex to sum up (for me anyway...)

While Agamemnon is more friendly when drawing tiles randomly, it goes up in compexity with the variants but without reaching the tension of Samurai. Still it can be quite difficult if both players are whilling to dive deep in the strategy. Very interesting game. You can get it you won't regret it.
