Japan, in the 16th century, faced one of the longest and bloodiest civil wars in history, called the Sengoku Era or Warring States period.
In this game (inspired by the Shogun/Samurai Swords board game) you control one of 18 historical clans struggling for the domination of Japan.
The map expands the ideas of the board game with: Cavalry and Alliances.
Each clan starts with only one territory and claims more and more territories from his foe.
After a few rounds of easy expanding into passive minor Clan territories, the real fight for domination starts.
Each Clan fights for its own and most of them will be controlled by the AI to make it lively and every game unique.
The AI gets many useful boni in this map and is challenging for a single player match, too.
Defeat your rivals and claim the title of Shogun for your clan! There is much to be conquered!
Daimyos and Promotion
Only victorious Daimyos must be promoted (Successful attack). This is the only player enforced rule to watch out for.
Just place a Daimyo with one more star in the territory of your victorious Daimyo during Promotion phase.
