Debut

the most unusual combat system …

A game that has been called by many a perfect blend of Euro-mechanics and wargame elements, Shogun is an improved version of the game Wallenstein. Shogun is set in Japan during the Sengoku or “Warring States” Period. Each player assumes the role of a great Daimyo with all his troops. Each Daimyo has the same10 possible actions to develop his kingdom and secure points. To do so he must deploy his armies with great skill. Each round, the players decide which of the actions are to be played out and in which of their provinces. If battle ensues between opposing armies, the unique Cubetower plays the leading role. The troops from both sides are thrown in together and the cubes that fall out at the bottom show who has won immediately. Owning provinces, temples, theaters and castles means points when scores are tallied. Whichever Daimyo has the highest number of points after the second tally becomes SHOGUN!

This is not the Hasbro Shogun but a completely different game by Rio Grande.

All first round games will be played four-player, if possible, using the pre-generated setup on the sun side of the board. Some games may be expanded to five-player if necessary. If there are 25 or less total winners, then all winners will advance to the semi-finals. If less than 16 winners appear for the semi-final, then the field will be filled to 16 using the standard MESE tiebreakers. Four 4-player games will be held. If 17-20 winners attend the semi-final, the field will be filled to 20 using the standard MESE tiebreakers. Five four-player games will be held. If 21+ winners attend the semi-final, the field will be filled to 25 using the standard MESE tiebreakers. Five 5-player games will be held.

The semi-final will use the Advanced setup rules (where initial provinces are chosen) on the moon side of the board. The Final will use the Advanced setup on the sun side of the board.
