Yesterday I had the chance to try Shadows in Kyoto, I have been seeing this gane around the last months but I didnt have the oportunity to play.
It is a small strategy game for two players, the flavor of the game reminds me of Stratego but with a twist, making it very interesting and much faster (we played 4 or 5 times in less than an hour). Only 6 pieces per player, movement driven by cards and different power depending on the faction and character you choose at the beginning of the game make of this game something different.
Art is great, and the quality of the compoments is very nice. The theme of the game is the same used in Hanamikoji and the illustration work has been done by the same artist.
From my point of view this is a better 2 player game if you compare with Hanamikoji, both are nicely illustrated, easy to learn and fast to play, but Shadows in Kyoto is much more engaging for my taste.
I really enjoyed it, great filler, 100% recomended.
