Bushido – Revised Rules

I’ve just noticed that the Bushido Quick Start rules have been updated to address the many niggling issues with the first version. At a glance they seem to have sorted the obvious errors, and it looks vastly improved now. If you haven’t seen it then you should check it out. The pdf is free to download. Proxy some figures and give it a whirl!

Bushido is something I’m looking forward to playing a lot more. I’ve had a couple of games so far and was running a mate through the basics yesterday and he seems convinced too. It’s a small skirmish game with a fantasy Oriental setting that mixes mostly Japanese and a little Chinese folklore. They’ve got some lovely models and as it plays on a very small (2 foot square) table you can afford to go to town on the scenery too. You could, for example, get something from Oshiro. I haven’t seen their models up close, but they look pretty online and they’re on my (endless) shopping list πŸ™‚

I’ll do a proper review in due course. This is really just a huzzah! that they’ve updated the rules, which was my only real gripe.

    Glad to hear it has the “Jake seal of approval”! I’ve been eyeing these models up for a while. I look forward to your review with interest. The Ancible’s review last week was pretty positive.

    I managed to get a couple of games at the Expo in Brum a while back and the system is lovely and the models are lush!

    Any plans for the near future for a more complete go-through as you mentioned? I’m on the fence about the game, but the web is full of good things to say so far.

      Probably not in the immediate future. In fact, since I wrote this I’ve made some changes in my plans and it’s less likely to see table time. This is not so much due to the game itself, more my attempt to reduce the vast overstock of stuff in my study and my determination to get Eternal Battle up and running properly. EB will replace many of the skirmish games I have, which is part of its intent. One game makes it much easier to remember how to play.
