Shogun (Samurai Swords)

No cover image available

Shogun / Samurai Swords is the last game in the original Milton Bradley Gamemaster series. It focuses on the chaotic feudal society of Japan during the Middle Ages. Players play one of several factions that erupt into a civil war, trying to consolidate their strongholds and then defeat other armies for the right to be called Shogun, the supreme ruler.

The game was originally published as Shogun and was later changed to Samurai Swords due to a name conflict with James Clavell's Shogun.

Nominee for the 1987 Charles S. Roberts awards for Best Pre-World War II Boardgame (Charles S. Roberts Awards).
