Hi. I'm thinking about buying this game, but in every review I read I haven't see other reason to atack than win a lot of points. The provinces on the map seems like all are almost the same, there is not any advantage in any of them to fight for, nor spatial based strategy. I'm getting it right?

So, what's the major reasong to fight, and how often do you fight in the game? Thanks.

i think the reason to fight n senji is twofold:

first there is the gained honor, of course: the more armies you defeat, the more honor you gain.

and, secondly, with every new province you conquer to your fold you gain one more order to give per year. and by that you are able to gain more hanafuda cards by producing or armies by recruiting!

That's right.

Combats are to win some provinces to earn you more actions in the next rounds. If it's an enemy provinces with a lot of army units, you gain honor points by defeating them.

BTW, in our last game, the winner didn't involve in any fight. He drew and drew cards and surprised everyone in the end by scoring big. The fight is very costly and it's almost a pure luck.

I don't think it is a game for players who expect a territory-fighting wargame. It's more of negotiation, of diplomacy and a bit like MahJong to collect combos to score.
