Japan 500 years ago, the age of the great generals - a bitter battle for power is raging throughout the country. Powerful princes, the Daimyos, want to secure supremacy in the 5 regions of Japan with the aid of their troops and extend their empire.
The battles between the princes are fought out with the aid of the cube tower. The remarkable thing about this is that not every army that is thrown into this tower from the top makes it way out of it again. So the game remains exciting right until the end.
The Daimyo, who manages to supply, defend and extend his provinces over a period of two years can emerge as the Shogun at the end of this game.
