The SAMURAI - for centuries, the name has represented unfailing courage, imperturbable loyalty and internal harmony. Today the name is no less respected and stories of the samurai myths and legends have become more and more popular. In Japan, there were three samurai forces: Peasants, clergy and nobility. The way to power in old Japan led through the peasants, the clergy and the nobility. To become a samurai, one had to be supported by one of these forces and have strong connections to the other two.

Samurai is the latest game from award-winning author Reiner Knizia. The three forces are represented by rice fields, Buddhas and high helmets. They are presented in molded plexiglass, finely polished and in noble black. The board comes in four pieces, representing the four major Japanese islands To win, players must skillfully position their forces to gain the majority surrounding the cities and villages to capture the figures.
