As a "Gunshi" (Strategist/tactician), control 3 types of troops. Plot, act and hide your Shogun well in this 2 player board game.
Two tacticians battle to infiltrate or capture the other's Shogun in a strategic game similar to Chess or Shogi. The tacticians send messages to and from the battlefield which causes a delay in the actions being taken.
The key to victory is to understand how to properly utilize the special command, the Chain Message, which allows game pieces of the same kind, positioned next to each other in a vertical or horizontal direction, to advance in the same way and in the same turn.
The player who can fulfill one of these requirements, wins:
- infiltrate the opponents base 3 times
- capture the opponent's Shogun
On a turn:
- Reveal and activate your previous planned action card
- Earn strategic energy
- Plan a future action by placing a card in your queue
There are only 3 types of troops, infantry, cavalry, archers. Each with their unique moving style and ability. Among one of the pieces you will hide your Shogun who will act as a troop. Protect and hide him well so he doesn't get captured.
