Samurai is an abstract board game by Reiner Knizia released simultaneously in Germany and the United States. The game is set in feudal times upon the 4 main islands of Japan.
To get the most points which requires that you both get most caught figures on one kind (high helmets, buddhas or rice fields) and a majority of the other tokens. You take a figures by having most "influence" over it, when the figure(s) are surrounded on land. The game finishes as soon all figures of one kind is taken away from the board, alternatively when 4 figures has been neutralized.
