Want to learn how to play Sekigahara: The Unification of Japan? This video will teach you how!

NOTE: At 11:26, the forced march in that situation would be illegal, because earlier I had benefited a highway bonus, and then chose to travel on a road for the forced march (which would negate the highway bonus). I could have force marched further to the west though.

NOTE: When gaining a leadership bonus from a leader block in your stack, you only have to declare that a leader is there, you do not have to actually show your opponent (though you must be honest!)

Nice.

There is a good implementation of this at yucata.de. I'm always looking for someone to play with.


p.s. Rodney's hair grows really fast.

Wow, unexpected rules explanation for sure, as we entered wargame territory here.

But since I (as a non-wargamer) indeed had an eye on this game for quite a while, I'm happy you shot this video -- danke !

PS: I think Daimyō is pronounced "dime-yo", not "dee-I'm-yo".

You've attached the "m" sound to the end of the first syllable when it actually comes at the start of the second syllable "myo".

This one surprised me. Hoped others might find the video helpful as they were getting into the rules (especially regarding the rules for movement).

To be honest, I had to rewind a few times when I watched this video and I already thought to myself "Well, this could turn out to be tricky to teach and if I do it in a non-rehearsed way, this game could appear quite daunting to new players and potentially scare them away."

But the thing is that this game puts most of its rules complexity and interesting strategic depth in just these two segements: movement and combat, and both parts are interesting and (at least to me) fresh in concept -- especially the combat.

What really helped was that you took the time to give some examples, not only talking about special cases, but repeating previously taught rules, so that the viewer can internalise them and also check for him/herself if they understood them correctly before.

I had this game for a while but never learned how to play it. Then on Monday, I decided to learn it... so I read the rules and played a few turns. I wasn't sure if I was playing it correctly. Then the next day, your video came out. Perfect timing!

Thanks Rodney!

If anyone at home is trying to follow along to learn this game, do yourself a favor and study the player aid.
It's the best player aid ever written in the history of board games.

There are two core concepts that cover 95% of the game, both of which are covered by the player aid.

One is discarding cards to game movement, the other is playing cards to deploy units in combat.

If you yourself are trying to teach this game at home, just focus on those two concepts.

If they ever bring it back into print (and tidy up the rules a bit), you can count on it!

What a great choice! I love Sekigahara, and I will use this video to orient new people who are interested in playing.

Some people really like the opportunity to "study up" before a game, when a specific game has been mentioned as the play. Rodney's videos are a perfect thing to point them to, because he's the best in the biz.

Such a wonderful and elegant game. It may well be the best block wargame out there. Definitely my favorite that I've played so far!

Say Rodney.

I see you've got a few COIN games on the shelf. How about a video for one of those? I'm currently working my way through the rule book for Colonial Twilight.

I would also be interested in either Colonial Twilight (2-player COIN game) or Cuba Libre (apparently the easiest one to learn).

But if Rodney wants to check off wargames and modern classics in general, I think we all know which wargame would have priority ... mb
