    We recently played a game of Ronin by Osprey Game based on Kurasawa’s Seven Samurai, I made a blog post for the AAR and a short video as well. Check the links below:

    For the loss of just one bandit? I’d say that was a right slaughter! Out of curiosity, did your friend who played the villagers have a good time? I only ask because sometimes games can get so one-sided as to be a bit of a slog for the losing side, though maybe that’s only because I’m a poor sport!

    Marvelous looking, though, as always. You have a bewildering array of minis and interests! Keep up the great work!

    It certainly was, but there was a lot of villagers and the Samurai were very powerful and would have been if they had been grouped together rather than split up. I think he did have a good time, we don’t really get upset if we lose, it’s more to do with playing the game than just winning. We talked about it afterwards and we will have a rematch, in which he will change tactics to see how that works.

    Thanks, these figures and buildings belong to Dean, I just provided the table, roads, rivers, hills and trees and the fences and hedges. It was a team effort!

    Ya ouch, bit of a slaughter.  It’ll be interesting to see how the next one goes with the different tactics.

    Yep, we will return to this scenario at some pint in future and I am sure Dean is already planning his tactics.

    Nice game! I didn’t realize Ronin could handle larger games like that. Need to go back to that rule book and re-read for a game in the future.

    Cheers, I don’t think it is supposed to and we were at breaking point TBH. But I’ve only played it once before so it made little difference to me…
