Incidentally, the rules for this game are poorly organized. They begin with describing the figures, then state that the figures are placed on teh board, then immediately go on to describe what all the tokens do, THEN go back and describe how to set up the game (on page 3 of the English rules). Sort of an odd way to organize them and it makes it harder than it should be.
I agree with this. By way of contrast, the PC version of Samurai by Klear Games does a fantastic job of explaining the rules.
