Samurai on Mabiweb
Jason Sato, Mike Gingold and I played another in our never-ending series of Samurai games. This time we played with the new "hidden" scores (though technically, all you have to do is look at the game log to figure them out). At any rate, I started out about as I always do, but some bad draws in the middle of the game didn't let me make a couple crucial placements when I needed to and Mike gobbled a ton of pieces up in the mid-game. By the end of the game, I had to choose between increasing my general stock, but ensuring I had no majority, or grabbing a majority, but knowing I had no chance at winning. Mike won pretty handily.
