My meagre experience of playing Daimyo hardly qualifies me to comment. However, it seems to me that by ranking the cards (A1, A2, etc.) it encourages any player being dealt 'A1' to hang on to it until such time as he has got his men in a position to strike against an opposing Daimyo. His top 'A1' card then guarantees him victory. Some games have a rule whereby the weakest card can defeat (or negate) the strongest - the Mouse and the Elephant effect - though admittedly I can't quite see how it could be applied to this game.

I've played only twice and I got hammered each time by the player who played A1/A2 cards in the same turn. I should play mor eto see if this was a fluke or it genuinely is 'the winning strategy'.
