In Small Samurai Empires, players play as Daimyo (leaders of great houses) with the purpose of conquering Japan and becoming its most powerful emperor in history. In order to accomplish this, players will recruit samurai armies, move them across provinces to gain majority, harvest resources to enhance certain actions, attack enemy armies to take over provinces, and build castles to fortify their position in a province. At the end of the game, players will score points for each province they controlled at the end of each era, depending on its final value in the last era. Whoever has the most points becomes Emperor of Japan!
