|The medieval Japan theme is a little strange -- samurai, raiding boats, and symbols of Buddhas, Shinto priest hats, and rice packages are used to vie for winning influence in major cities around the Japanese islands. Again, being a Reiner Knizia game, you have to consider balance. You want to dominate score in one or more of the three areas of influence, but, like Ingenious and other Knizia games, you will win by having the highest score in your weakest area. However you don't even get the chance of competing in your weakest area if you don't dominate in another area.
It's shrewd, beautiful and completely pasted on, yet strangely seems to suit the aesthetics of what Westerners associate with medieval Japan. If you like Knizia games then get this, even if Samurai is a little expensive for what you get.
