|Category:||Asian, Fantasy, Skirmish Battles|
|Description:||Bushido is an oriental fantasy tabletop miniature battle game for two players. Each player commands a force of no more than a handful of individuals, represented by 32mm metal miniatures. These forces meet on the battlefield and the commanders (the players, that is) try to outwit, outfight and outlive the opposing force and fulfil their battle objectives while denying the enemy theirs. If you have played tabletop miniature games before, Bushido falls into the "skirmish game" category: all miniatures represent individuals and your force consists of a small group of unique characters rather than a big faceless army. A game of Bushido is fast-moving, flexible and filled with strategizing, counter-strategizing and counter-counter-strategizing. Your tactical acumen is important, but as dice add an element of randomness, so too is your ability to think on your feet. A typical game of Bushido takes between one and two hours to play – more if you are new to the game, less if you are a seasoned veteran.|

Adepticon Tournament March 31st 2019
Bushido at Adepticon (Chicago, IL - USA)
There will be a 3-round tournament using the Bushido New Dawn rules and errata dated July, 2018.
Date: Sunday, March 31st
Time: 9 am - 3 pm
Slots: As of 3/1/19 (Also known as 1/3/19 here in Blighty) there are 3 slots left (of 32 total).
Grand Prize: Help GCT design a Bushido character!
Pre-registration has ended, but you can still sign up at Adepticon.
Standard Bushido tournament scoring will apply. Each round will provide a new challenge. Expect an area-of-control, a simple influence (custom written for Adepticon by Jason Enos) and a VIM scenario.
Art Wagner has created some incredible boards and scenery for players to complete upon but the tournament was more popular than expected and we extended the number of players. At present we are 4 boards short of the total needed to conduct a 32-person tournament. If you can help PLEASE contact the TO (Art Wagner) on the Fan's Bushido page HERE, or if you prefer to avoid that website just start a thread in the forum and we'll make sure Art knows about it.
