Samurai is set in medieval Japan. Players compete to gain the favor of three factions: samurai, peasants, and priests, which are represented by helmet, rice paddy, and Buddha tokens scattered about the board, which features the islands of Japan. The competition is waged through the use of hexagonal tiles, each of which help curry favor of one of the three factions — or all three at once! Players can make lightning-quick strikes with horseback ronin and ships or approach their conquests more methodically. As each token (helmets, rice paddies, and Buddhas) is surrounded, it is awarded to the player who has gained the most favor with the corresponding group.

Gameplay continues until all the symbols of one type have been removed from the board or four tokens have been removed from play due to a tie for influence.

At the end of the game, players compare captured symbols of each type, competing for majorities in each of the three types. Ties are not uncommon and are broken based on the number of other, "non-majority" symbols each player has collected.

    4/5
    Quasi 20 ans après sa sortie, les joueurs recherchent plus de profondeur, plus de choix et plus de stratégie.  Mais ça fait du bien de revenir aux sources de temps en temps et de rejouer à ce jeu de majorité, pilier des jeux de majorité modernes.  Et il reste un des meilleurs jeux à présenter aux non-initiés pour les faire mordre à la passion qui est la nôtre.

    Alors, Samouraï, c’est bien?

    Samouraï est un jeu de placement et de majorité puissant, servi avec un soupçon de chaos. Car on n’est sûr de rien tant qu’un territoire n’ait été encerclé. Ce qui donne des luttes violentes, tendues et riches en rebondissements.

    Mais préparez la palette d’aspirine, car Samouraï est un pur brain-burner. Il va falloir tout contrôler, tout observer, tout compter. Pour gagner. Ou alors on joue « au petit bonheur la chance » en mode fun en posant ses tuiles n’importe où n’importe comment et en espérant que ça tienne. C’est aussi possible. Moins de chance de gagner, mais aussi moins de chance de se taper une migraine.

    Pas le meilleur titre du docteur Knizia, Samouraï n’est pas un mauvais jeu en soi. Juste que le plaisir à y jouer est très relatif. Prise de tête, froid et frustrant aux conflits farouches. Luttes intestines d’influence et de majorité, Samouraï parvient un rare grand écart entre tactique et stratégie. Un jeu de traviole qui ravira les joueurs comptables.

    Et vivement la réédition de 2032. Parce que là, c’est service minimum côté édition. Pour citer une philosophe contemporaine, « Non mais allô quoi ». Un gros bout de carton qui bloque les 84% de la boîte, et un petit espace pour y jeter tous les jetons. Aucun thermo, aucun ziplock. Débrouillez-vous. Euh… Sérieux?
