I started another game of Samurai on MaBiWeb - this time for four players and got Justin Easley, Nathan Winchester, and The Fonz (aka Mike Garrett) to play along. Mike was able to "steal" the capital city for next to nothing and whether by luck or strategic play, didn't play his ships or Ronin until the end of what was a really tight game. Justin had gone north, but Nathan intruded upon him and thus held him back a bit. I had committed to the main land areas was just trying to hold on - never felt like I had many opportunity plays in this game. The biggest thing was that Mike was EXTREMELY efficient with his play and at the end, I could neither force a tie nor win, so surrendered and ended the game (Mike was going to anyway).
