a game of samurai politics and warfare
I do not want to say too much about this until it is complete. What you see is what you get for now -- I will not even surrender the back story yet.
There are two sets of rules: the very thick master rules, and the simplified short rules. Optional swordplay cards are also planned instead of dice. I have not had much free time to devote to this so it is sadly a long time in development. As shown in the photos, the initial draft of the rules are written, but they still need much work to make the game play smoother and more engaging.
2015 update: A fresh edit of the rules has been mostly completed improving clarity and fixing several issues. Quick reference cards have also been designed (after several attempts) to help bring brevity to the complexity (for both the short rules and the master rules).
A board game design from my early years
As a consolation prize to the above teaser, I give you one of my first board games in its entirety and juvenile glory (there were earlier Monopoly-like games that I made but I no longer have them). Judging by the math homework which I wrote some of the later rules on, this dates back to when I was 11 or 12 years old in the early 1980's.
