"It is the sixteenth century in feudal Japan, where war rages across the land. Amid the chaos and conflict, you have risen to power as one of five warlords mighty enough to conquer and control the whole empire. Your victory depends on how expertly you extend your domain while defending it from your enemies.

Send your daimyo leaders, samurai, and ashigaru warriors into battle to seize new provinces and lay siege to castles. Spend your hard-won treasury on building fortifications and bolstering your forces with ronin and ninja.

Prove your strategy, defeat your rivals, and earn the exalted title of Shogun."


This is from the back of the new Wizards of the Coast/Hasbro/Avalon Hill board game Ikusa, which came out earlier this year.

If you are an old-school board game fan, this may sound a lot like another board game, Shogun, from way back in 1986 or, perhaps, Samurai Swords from 1995. There's a very good reason these games sound similar; they're the same game. Each new version of the game has had to change its name for one reason or another. It went from Shogun in 1986 to Samurai Swords in 1995 back to Shogun in 2006 and now, in 2011, it is going by the name Ikusa.

At Merlyn's right now we have a copy of the 2006 version of Shogun and the newer Ikusa.
