From multiplayer wargames like Shogun to euros like Samurai, the Japanese have provided us with plenty of source material for prime gaming fun. Here are a few of the Guru's favourites.
King of Tokyo 2016 Edition
On the 5th anniversary of the release of the best-seller by Richard Garfield, King of Tokyo gets a facelift with a new version, entirely redone by a group of artists led by Regis Torres. In addition to these exclusive illustrations, this new version will have a new rulebook that was reworked to be clearer, as well as two new monsters: Space Penguin and Cyber Kitty.
A quick playing dice game where you are out to complete dishes before you opponent does, but the other players still are included and can end a round if each player throws a "Yuck" on the dice.
Warriors of Japan
Long considered one of the greatest games to ever be published in Japan, Warriors of Japan will feature much of the same system as we have seen in Warriors of God. The game covers the Nanboku-cho period of Japanese history and simulates one of the most dynamic and important periods in Japanese history.
