Still anxiously waiting my copy, but with the Dynasty Expansion, it is possible to play with 8? Or is 6 the cap?

6 is the cap.

You won't have the cards or the room for 8. And the game would take wayyyyyyy longer.

It's like Blood Rage was with their extra clans--you had 6 clans total with all of the KS purchases, but was still at max a 5-player game.

6 is the cap. With 8 one player each season wouldn't have the chance to select a single mandate.

6 is officially cap. You could try to play 8, but 1 person would not get to play a mandate every season. Might be fun for shits and giggles though.

Makes sense; much like Scythe, I would suspect it would drag on way too long. It makes the two expansion factions more interesting because I would suspect that rarely they both would be used. If only one is used, that faction would not have to compete for the 7 Unlucky Gods.

Is all you need to play 6 the Daimyo box with Fox Clan?

Yes. You either need the Fox Clan (KS Exclusive) or the Dynasty Expansion for one or both of the Sun and Moon clans...

You'd need some house rules but I think if you have an 8-player group that's down to try it, you should.

We play Blood Rage with 6. I definitely will be playing this game with 8, what other reason was there to make 8 starting territories and 8 clans? As far as caps go by the designer, what could they possibly know.

I expect the 8 player game to be magnificent.

As someone who used to love trying to play diplomacy games with too many people, I wouldn't recommend it unless everyone is incredibly enthusiastic, or it will drag on and become boring.

Specifically because of that issue, I'd strongly recommend never including one clan without the other. You really need both to maintain balance IMO.
