By entering into and then breaking-off alliances Samurai, Shogun and Daimyo fight for the most valuable booty. Only with power and decision can you accomplish your goal before the outbreak of revolution! A game of negotiation and bluff for merciless Ronins.
I very much like the way this game 'looks' but the rules do not compute whatsoever and the game seems very confusing.
Nearly everyone hates the rulebook and thinks it's way too confusing. Fear not! These rewritten rules borrow liberally from the actual rulebook, but hopefully make a lot more sense. Enjoy (and please post if you spot any mistakes!)
One of the harder aspects of Oreinte is teaching it to new players. This is a pdf of a simple-to-understand flowchart that shows the order of play. It also includes 4 clearly laid out cards showing each lord's power.
