The year was 1990...or maybe 1994. One of my friends had this game that I remember as being a more complex version of Risk set in Japan. It had an Asia-sounding name and I want to say it was called Shogun. I only played the game once, so my memory is pretty hazy on the details, but I've always thought it would be cool to own a copy of that game just for nostalgia.

Well, I looked up Shogun, but the only version similar to what I remember was published in 2006. Does anyone know if that game is a remake of an older game, or if there is some other game I'm probably thinking of that would have been popular in the late '80s or early '90s?

He said something to me in Chinese like, 'Boo coo sow!', sounded like some cartoon sh!t. But I understood it to be a question...

I believe MB lost the Shogun name due to Clavell's estate having a problem with them using the name Shogun, what with the book and all. So MB changed the name of the game to Samurai Swords. Recently, the game changed names again and now it is known as Ikusa.

Ahh. Okay, that makes sense. I looked at that game and thought it looked more like I was remembering than the current Shogun game, but I knew the name was out of place. Thanks for the info!
