First Look: Shogun

Shogun by Queen Games is a light board wargame by Dirk Henn set in 16th Century Japan using blocks and counters rather than figures. The game appears to be a re-theme of Wallenstein, their Thirty Years War game which has received very good reviews.

As with Wallenstein, the game is card driven with combat resolution using a nice dice tower based mechanic. The game has been designed with language independent components and is provided with rules booklets in English, French, German, Spanish and Japanese.

The game is for 3 to 5 players and is available from Games Lore amongst other outlets for £29.99 or less.
