From the post:
So what’s this then? Well, during the development of the game we played around with a lot of different rules that ended up being left out for reasons of space, game length or simplicity. However we didn’t want all these ideas to go to waste, so I’m gradually writing them up to share with you as optional rules!
The idea is to chat with your opponent and agree which rules you want to use (if any!) – just choose what you think is fun and make the game your own.
I’ve kicked off with a few short items to get the ball rolling such as water-based terrain and ‘Shot in the Back’ (dishonourable player will like that one). There is also a rule for varying the ability scores of your samurai to give them a little more character in campaigns, and we’ve done blank Recruitment cards to help you record the results!
