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 "Shogun" must first do battle with the mightiest generals in the empire and only the strong will survive!

- Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu
The island Empire of Nippon is on the verge of civil war; the Emperor has died without an heir and now the Daimyos of the 3 great clans all claim to have a divine right to rule. The Daimyos can all trace their bloodlines back to the first Emperor, so the only way to resolve the impasse is through bloody war!
Now that the Emperor's throne is vacant and negotiations have failed, the Daiomyos have sent out their emissaries to rally the armies of their vassel lords. These emissaries are legendary Samurai warriors loyal only to their Daimyo. They have been charged with the task of convincing the vassel lords to fight on behalf of their Daimyo, to help with the conscription & training of the peasant soldiers, and to assist the local lord in leading their army on the battlefield.
Your Daimyo demands your assistance in securing him the Emperor's throne and for your loyalty he has promised to appoint you to the position of "Shogun", the Warlord of all Nippon!
A great war is about to begin to determine which Clan's Daimyo will prevail and which general will become Shogun?
The Samurai Showdown has begun!
