Review for Daimyo Senso


Let’s take a look at Daimyo Senso from @warrior.with.a.pen.games ☺️ …Initial thoughts, the map is giant and gorgeous! There’s nothing worse than playing an area control game on a tiny map! While the different factions are similar, they have very different powers and “personalities”, and it’s just enough asymmetry to make things interesting and replayable without making the game unbalanced. I also like that there are rules for solo play, 1v1, or up to 8 players. The setup for all of these modes is clearly laid out in the manual. I also like the clean simplicity of this one. There aren’t any dice or fiddly mechanics. The rules are straightforward and easy to pick up. If you are a fan of area control and more cerebral strategy games, then definitely give Daimyo Senso a try!


Daimyo Senso is a good entry point for folks wanting to get into area control war games. It’s also a nice mid week after work game that seasoned players would enjoy to have in their collection. Daimyo Senso also offers a fun turn based multilevel strategy game that will have people coming back for more.

Huang: a Three Kingdoms TTRPG

Huang is set in Three Kingdoms China, during a tumultuous civil war, and players must navigate the dangerous world. Full of larger-than-life heroes and villains, Huang helps players tell incredibly epic stories of heroism and deceit, victory and betrayal, glory and even shame.

With player attributes scaling from 5 to 100, the mechanics of Huang are fresh, new, and also work among the epic scale of the stories. Any time a die is rolled, if it maxes out (like rolling a natural 20 on a 20-sided die), the player keeps the total and roll that die again. On any die… Rolled for any reason…

The book contains everything needed for players to make their characters, understand how actions work, learn about our pitched battle system, and even see some heroes they might encounter in person (but hopefully not on the battlefield, for now).

Seven introductory stories near the back of the book help new GMs and players ease into the setting, get into the mindset of the people from the period, and learn in depth the deep mechanics of the game.
