Can you unite the clans amidst the tumult of war? Age of War is a fast-paced dice game for two to six players by game designer Reiner Knizia. You and your fellow players assume the roles of daimyos competing to unite the warring clans of feudal Japan and assume control of the nation.
During play, you muster troops by rolling seven custom dice, and you use these troops to lay siege to one of fourteen different castles, each of which requires you to assemble a unique combination of troops in order to conquer it. Castles grant points towards your victory, and you can gain more points by uniting an entire clan. The daimyo who has the most support at game's end is the victor!
