Every year the Emperor walks through the imperial gardens to greet the spring, every year he stops beneath the Sakura trees, and every year you try to paint his picture. This will be your year. Artists from near and far will step over their rivals to be closest to the Emperor as he reaches the cherry blossoms, hoping to paint a portrait that will please him. However, should one of them accidentally bump into the Emperor, they would be sure to earn his ire!

Sakura is a light tactical game of pushing your luck, and pushing your friends. Each player will simultaneously decide how far to move both their character and the Emperor. The player closest to the Emperor when the Cherry Blossoms are reached will gain a huge amount of prestige, but if you push too far you risk bumping into the Emperor and walking away in disgrace.

    Expert en recyclage, l'auteur reprend Formula Motor Racing (2001) et le simplifie à l'extrême en ne conservant que le principe de déplacement : chaque joueur se choisit simultanément une carte conditionnant 2 déplacements, l'un pour son pions et l'autre pour le pion Empereur ou un pion adverse; il faut être au plus proche du pion Empereur au moment des 3 décomptes en évitant à tout prix de le toucher.

    C'est déjà chaotique à 3, et au-delà ça devient du grand n'importe quoi, on se retrouve dans le même tour 1er puis dernier, aucun contrôle possible, vous pouvez sans pb jouer votre carte au hasard en conservant une chance de l'emporter.

    C'est rageant d'un auteur habitué aux règles ciselées et aux mécanismes subtils; à ne conseiller qu'aux enfants de 6 ans ou aux férus de jeux d'apéro où seul le hasard importe pour désigner qui paiera la tournée le vainqueur.
