Game Arrivals: Jan. 6th - 10th

This week's arrivals include yet another new game:

Samurai Sword
daVinci Games

Just released from daVinci Games, the designers of the Wild West shoot-out card game - Bang!, is Samurai Sword.
As with Bang!, Samurai Sword utilizes daVinci Games' "Bang! Game System™":

  • The distance between the players is an actual part of the game
  • Unique character combinations make every game different
  • Different goals & secret roles for each player create tension & surprises with every play
  • The"draw" mechanic & the many different types of cards add depth to the game.
Samurai Sword is a fast-paced card game where players are divided into 3 (secret) teams: 1) The Shogun & Samurai, 2) The Ninja's, and 3) The Ronin.  For each team, the goal is to gather the most Honor Points or to have the last man standing.  Each player will receive a unique character card with special abilities.  The battle begins, players that get Defeated during the course of the game are tagged "Harmless" until the beginning of their next turn.  In this way all players remain in the game until the end.  The game ends when at least one player has no Honor Points remaining.  Role cards are then revealed and scores are tallied.
