to the Showdown
Club DOJO is proud to present the
Samurai Showdown Kings of War Grand Tournament
Our goal is to offer war-gamers a challenging and rewarding gaming experience. As a competitive gaming club DOJO values transparency in scoring, easy to understand rules, and fun scenarios. All rules will be laid out within this website long before the tournament, so players can build their lists and play-test the rules before deciding on their army lists. If any special rule or scoring mechanic is unclear please contact us ASAP, so we can correct the problem!
Prepare yourselves; for those who wish to receive the title of "Sensei" must first do battle with the mightiest generals in the empire and only the strong will survive!
The Samurai Showdown has begun!
"There are only two ways to come back from the battlefield. With the head of an enemy or without your own"
- Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu

Why attend Samurai Showdown?
Special Heroes! Every player will bring a Legendary Samurai Warrior that joins their army for free. Army Alignment determines the specific abilities of this Samurai, so there will be some variation. Additionally, each game you'll have the option to drop the powerful warlord and instead choose to use a deadly Ninja Assassin if you feel it will be more beneficial.
To help immerse players in the tournament, scenarios will have themed missions for your Samurai / Ninja heroes and you will battle upon beautifully themed gaming tables filled with Japanese buildings, koi ponds, rice fields, Torii gates, Buddhist shrines, and bamboo forests.
What other tournament has a Geisha traveling around during games to serve Sake? That's right, FREE sake or plum wine service to your table!
And award winners receive a unique themed prize for their efforts. 1st Overall gets a real "Battle-Ready" Japanese Katana sword. But we know many of you are not competing for 1st Overall, so we have other themed awards too. Counter-Charger (finishing middle in Overall score) will get a Japanese sword as well, a Tanto short sword. Other themed prizes might include: a bottle of sake, a sake serving set, Incense Burner, Tapestries, & more.
But most importantly, you'll get to enjoy 2 days of wargaming with the most skilled and most fun Kings of War players in the country! So I hope you'll come visit us in Dallas and join in all the fun!
