  • Game Spotlight: Samurai Spirit

    Antoine Bauza's latest trip to Japan

    Acclaimed French board game designer Antoine Bauza has taken us on many trips to Japan through his games, including Tokaido, Hanabi, Takenoko, and now Samurai Spirit. It's a co-operative game based on legendary film maker Akira Kurosawa's classic "Seven Samurai". And it's just as hard to beat as Bauza's other famously punishing co-op game, Ghost Stories. What gives Samurai Spirit its strength, and what are its weaknesses?
