Cult of Yurei Setup - Shape has done a cracking job painting these!
Turn 1 - Both forces adavnce upfield, the more support role characters like Kato and Sakura focus to gain more kii for the coming battle.
Turn 2 - Battle is joined around the Idols, two are contested by Temple Bushi as Itsunagi and Akimoto more on to engage the oncoming Kairai.
Turn 3/4 - The Cult gain control of Akimoto, and Itsunagi is forced to kill him before he can kill a Temple Bushi controlling an Idol! the Ito were hacking down kairai on several occasions but the unstoppable undead were rising up again!
Turn 5/6 - Disaster strikes! The Mannaquin controls Itsunagi after a school boy error by me, he then kills a Bushi which enables the Cult to capture a Idol off me. My last Bushi is killed with the end of turn 6 but i still control one Idol earning a draw haha!
We had a great time playing this and had a small crowd watching the action throughout, we made a few mistakes on subsequent reading of the rules again yesterday such as order of second actions and how long the mannaquin is in control of a victim and what it can do whilst under control but thats what playtime experience is for.
We have arranged a rematch for next week which should be smoother and quicker to fight!
