The tokens for the Barricades, Farmsteads, and Families are placed
on the corresponding spaces on the board.
•
The barricades constitute a short-lived protection against
the raiders. If the Barricades are destroyed, then the farms
become vulnerable.
•
A penalty can be found on the reverse of each Farmstead
token. If you choose to play at the Hard or Heroic difficulty
level, then this is the penalty imposed should the farm be
destroyed.

Principle of the game
•
Samurai Spirit is a game of collaboration, in which the players take on the role of Samurai, engaged by the peasants to protect their village and their crops against the attack
of the terrible raiders of the ONI-MUSHA clan. In order to gain victory, the players must work together to protect the farms and the families in the village! The fight will be arduous,
but the Samurai are equipped with a powerful trump to help achieve victory: a fighting “animal” spirit.
•
The stack with the Raider cards is located on the side with the hill (face down). D
•
The Discard pile is located on the side with the graveyard (face up). E
•
The Intruder stack is located on the side with the gate (face down).
2
Animal face
In the chaos of combat the Samurai must take care to
protect the peasant Families. They in turn help the Samurai.
During the course of the game, Raider cards are placed on three sides of the Village game board:
F

The Raider cards
The Village
The raiders are represented by cards with values from 1 to 6, which are divided up
as follows:
•
•
•
52 Plunderers (value: 1, 2, 3, or 4)
7 Lieutenants (value: 5)
7 Bosses (value: 6)
During the first round only the Plunderers must be fought off. The Lieutenants join them
in the second round and then finally, the Bosses join the fight in the third round.
Various elements are depicted on the cards:
A) Apply the battle penalty
•
Place the Village game board in the centre of the table.
•
Place the 6 Farmstead tokens building-side-up on one of the dedicated spaces
(3 left and 3 right).
•
Place the 3 Family tokens doll-side-up on the corresponding spaces.
•
Place a number of Barricades equal to the number of players + 2 on their
dedicated spaces. Return the remaining Barricade tokens to the box; you will
not be using them.
Raiders
B
A
•
•
Shuffle all of the Plunderer cards (values 1, 2, 3, and 4) together. Keeping the cards
face-down, count out a number of these equal to the number of players × 7. These
form the Raider stack. Return the remaining cards to the box unseen.
Set aside the Lieutenant cards (value 5) and Boss cards (value 6). They will be
incorporated later in the game.
Samurai
Each player chooses a Samurai board, or is given one at random (as he wishes).
He places it in front of himself human-side-up, and places a Samurai meeple on
space 0 of his battle track. In addition to this, each player places his support token
next to his Samurai board.
A randomly chosen player places the Active Player marker in front of his board: He
begins the game.
C
Example of game setup with 5 players:
D
A The battle value of the Raider
B Possibly a Defense symbol (hat, farm, doll)
•
7 Barricades are placed on the Village game board (number of players + 2).
Their position is of no importance, as long as they are on Barricade spaces.
•
The Raider stack consists of 35 Plunderer cards (number of players × 7).
•
The discard pile and the Intruder stack are empty.
If you have Raider cards to the right of your Samurai board (see "Fight" below), then
you MUST apply the penalty depicted on the last card laid there. If there should be
no more Raider cards lying to the right of your Samurai Board, or if there is no penalty
depicted on the last card laid, then nothing happens; continue with the second step
of your turn.
Important: If you are unable to apply the Raider's penalty (e.g. a left arrow when your
left neighbour has already dropped out), you receive a wound instead.
Example: It is Claude’s turn. There are 3 Raider cards to the right of his board, and the
last one laid shows the flame symbol. He therefore removes one of the Barricades from
the Village (A) and can then continue with his action (B).
B) Carry out an action
The position of the Samurai meeple on the battle track always corresponds to
the sum of the Raider cards in the combat line. Each time a card is added to or
subtracted from the right side of the Samurai board, the position of the Samurai
meeple must be altered accordingly.
DEFEND - Place the Raider card TO THE LEFT
Choosing when to defend can be a tough choice, and you must use it judiciously;
but be sure not to ignore this option! (See "End of the Round" below for further details)!
The only Raider cards you can place to the left of your board are those bearing a hat,
farm, or doll symbol.
If the Raider cards bears a hat, farm, or doll symbol, and you do NOT already have a
Raider with that same symbol to the left of your board, then you may defend, placing
that card to the left of your board.
You MUST carry out EXACTLY ONE of the following three actions:
1.
2.
3.
Updating the battle track
Fight
Support
Pass
1. Fight
If (and only if) you choose to Fight, turn over the topmost Raider card on the stack;
this is your current opponent. Following this, you must decide whether to Confront the
Raider or Defend against the Raider.
CONFRONT - Place the Raider card TO THE RIGHT
Place the Raider card to the right of your Samurai board. If there are already one or
more cards there, then place them overlapping, in such a way that the values of all
cards are still visible. These cards form the combat line.
Clarifications:
When you Defend, you place the Raider to the left of your board, and you do not
modify your battle track. Only those Raiders you Confront (i.e. they go to the right of
your board) affect your battle track.
If you already have the same symbol to the left of your board, or the Raider bears no
symbol, then you cannot Defend against it; you must Confront the Raider.
Consequently, you may have a maximum of 3 cards to the left of your Samurai board.
(Their symbols must be visible at all times.)
Example:
Claude already has a Raider with the farm symbol to the left of his board. When it is his
turn, he opts for the "Fight" action and draws a card with the hat symbol. He decides
to Defend, and places it to the left of his board. If the Raider had borne either the farm
symbol or no symbol, he would have been forced to Confront it, place it to the right
of his board, and modify his battle track accordingly.
Now move your Samurai meeple on your battle track, so that its position matches the
total of the values shown on the Raider cards in your combat line.
How the total compares to your Kiai value determines what happens next:
C Possibly a Penalty,
D Possibly Flames.
How to play
Game setup
The game lasts 3 rounds. During each round, players take turns in a clockwise
direction, until the Raider stack has been used up OR until all players have dropped
out of the round (passed).
1 Round procedure
There are four levels of difficulty: Easy, Normal, Hard, Heroic. The following game
set-up refers to the Normal difficulty level, which is suggested for the first game. The
remaining difficulty levels are explained at the end of these rules.
Note: In games with only 1 or 2 players, some modifications are necessary. These are
explained at the end of the rules.
On your turn, you must carry out the following steps in order:
4
Case 1:
If the total is LESS THAN your
Kiai value, you stand your
ground (nothing further
happens).
Case 2:
If the total is EQUAL TO
your Kiai value, you may
immediately activate your
Kiai.
2. Support
Rather than face the enemy directly, you decide to help a fellow Samurai in need.
Case 3:
If the total is GREATER THAN
your Kiai value, you are
overcome by the raiders:
Immediately remove one
village Barricade.
Hand your support token to a Samurai of your choice.
Then, without looking at the card, move the topmost card from the Raider stack
onto the Intruder stack.
5
The Samurai who received your support token benefits from your talent on his next
turn. After completing his next turn, he must hand the token back to you - regardless
of whether he used it.
3.
There is a marker for the player who begins the game.
It is recommended to use it when a Samurai uses his
Kiai, so that you do not lose track of whose turn it is. Under
certain circumstances, though, it is possible for a player to
activate his Samurai’s Kiai without it actually being his turn.
Clarification: A Samurai can receive support from several fellow players, and during
his next turn, he can benefit from ALL the corresponding talents.
Sustaining a Wound / Freeing your animal spirit
You can decide not to participate in any further combat for the remainder of the
round. Lay your Samurai meeple down on the space of the battle track where it is
currently standing. This round is then finished for you.
For the rest of the round, you are treated as though you were no longer in the game.
You can neither receive cards, nor get rid of any; and you no longer suffer the penalty
from the last Raider card in your combat line.
During the course of a round, a Samurai can sustain one or more wounds, and may
also sustain a wound at the end of the round if he has not protected the peasants
(hat symbol).
Important: If your Samurai meeple is already past your Kiai value (i.e. on the flame),
then you MUST PASS.
Wounds bear the following consequences:
Example: At the beginning of his turn, Claude suffers the penalty of the last Raider
card in his combat line, and must remove a Barricade from the Village. Because his
Samurai meeple is past his Kiai, he is forced to PASS. He lays his Samurai meeple down
where it is on his board.
•
2 Talents, Kiai, and Wounds
•
Your Samurai possesses a unique talent, which is depicted in the upper-left corner of
your Samurai board. You can use it on all the Raider cards you draw, but you are in
no way required to use it. The individual Talents are explained later in this rulebook.
Activating your Kiai
Every Samurai possesses a very special power, called Kiai. The effect of each Samurai’s
Kiai is depicted in the bottom area of the Samurai board.
Whenever you reach your Kiai value exactly, then you can activate your Kiai
immediately, by following the steps below:
Use your Kiai's effect, if you like.
Regardless of whether you used your Kiai's effect, remove the first card from
your combat line (i.e. the one directly on the table), and place it face-up on the
discard pile. Next, update your battle track accordingly. As a result, you might
be able to re-activate your Kiai on a future turn!
A. The last card of the Raider stack is drawn and played.
OR
Important: When all players have passed, the remaining cards of the Raider stack are
placed on top of the intruder stack.
At the end of a round the Samurai carry out the following steps IN ORDER:
1.
Each Samurai who has not placed any card with the hat symbol on his defense
side (to the left of his board) sustains a wound.
2.
Each Samurai who has not placed any card with the farm symbol on his
defense side (to the left of his board) removes one Farmstead from the village.
If you are playing the game at Hard or Heroic level, then the penalty depicted
on the reverse side of the Farmstead token must be applied.
2nd wound: Remove the wound
token from your board and
return it to the supply. Then turn
your Samurai board over to
be animal-side-up. Your board
will still be between the Raider
cards that were to the left and
right of your board before the
transformation. Set the meeple
on your battle track, according
to the total value of your battle
line. Your fighting spirit has been
awakened, and your combat
ability and Kiai have improved!
Example: Claude’s Samurai sustains a second wound during the game. At the
moment, he has two Raider cards to the right of his board (values 4 and 2) and one
to the left (with the farm symbol). Claude removes the wound token and turns over
his Samurai board to show the animal side. His cards remain where they are and the
Samurai figure is returned to space 6 on the battle track. He now has a longer battle
track at his disposal and a more powerful Kiai.
Example: Claude is playing Kyuzo, whose Kiai value is 9. He already has two cards to
the right of his Samurai board: one card with the value 4 and one card with the value
2, making 6 in total. He carries out the "Fight" action and draws a Raider with a value
of 3. Claude Confronts the Raider, placing it to the right of his Samurai board, and
increases his battle track by 3. This leads him to a total of 9, which is exactly equal to his
Kiai value. He decides to use his Kiai. Then he removes the first card which was placed
to the right of his Samurai board (value 4) and updates his battle track by placing the
meeple on the value 5 (2 + 3 = 5). By doing so, he might be able to reach his Kiai value
once again during the current round.

3rd wound: Take a Wound token, and place it on your Samurai board, which will
now be animal-side-up.
A
B
C
A A random player removes the Wound token from his board.
B Add a Barricade to the village.
Important: The number of Barricades in the game cannot exceed the
number of Barricades in use at the beginning of the game.
1st wound: Take a Wound token,
and place it on your Samurai
board, which will still be humanside-up.
C Place the top card of the Intruder stack on the Discard pile.
Penalties for destroyed Farmsteads

Using your Talent
1.
Bonuses for saved Families
Two events terminate the current round immediately:
B. All players have passed.
3. Pass
2.
End of a round
Active Player marker
Example: Claude enjoys the support of Philippe (who is playing Heihachi). Heihachi's
talent allows Claude to give his active card to one of his neighbours, if it has an even
value. After having applied the penalty of the last Raider in his combat line, he opts
for the "Fight" action and draws a Raider with a value of 3. Unfortunately, he cannot
pass this on to either of his neighbours. Nevertheless, he must return the support token
to Philippe after completing his turn, even though it has not helped him.
Every Samurai who does not have a card with the family symbol on his defense
side (to the left of his board) removes a random Family token from the village.
AFTERWARDS, the corresponding bonus is given for each Family remaining in
the village.
C
4.
B
Reveal cards one-by-one from the Intruder stack. For each card showing flames
at the bottom right, remove one Barricade from the village. If there are no
Barricades to remove, a Farmstead is destroyed instead (and if you are playing
the game at Hard or Heroic level, then the penalty depicted on the reverse side
of the Farmstead token must be applied).
D
A Immediately remove a random Family token from the village.
B Immediately remove another Farmstead, and apply its penalty, too.
Immediately remove a Barricade. If there are no Barricades to remove, a
C Farmstead is destroyed instead; apply its penalty.
Example: The players have completed steps 1 to 3. Now there is only one remaining
Barricade in the village. The Intruder stack beside the village consists of 3 cards. The
first card revealed shows no flames. On the second card, flames can be seen: a
Barricade is removed from the village. The third card also shows flames: Since no more
Barricades are available, a Farmstead is removed from the village.
D A random player immediately sustains a Wound.
4th wound: The Samurai dies, the group loses faith, the village and the game are lost.
7
End of the first round: If at least one Farmstead AND one Family remain, then the players
begin the next round. ALL cards used in this round are collected together. The players
place their Samurai meeples on space 0 on their battle tracks again. For each player,
add one randomly drawn Lieutenant card (value 5) to the Plunderer cards. Shuffle these
together to form the Raider stack for the next round.
HEROIC
End of the second round: If at least one Farmstead AND one Family remain, the players
begin the next round. ALL cards used in this round are collected together. The players
place their Samurai meeples on space 0 on their battle tracks again. For each player,
add one randomly drawn Boss card (value 6) to the Plunderer and Lieutenant cards.
Shuffle these together to form the new Raider stack for the next round.
•
•
•
•
Number of Barricades at the beginning of the game: number of players.
The penalties for destroyed Farmsteads are applied.
The Family bonus is not applied (but you still set up the Family tokens doll-sideup: You still must save the families!).
The Raider stack consists of 7 Plunderers per player. For the second round, one
Lieutenant card per player is shuffled into the stack. For the third round, one Boss
card per player is shuffled into the stack.
Scoring
End of the third round: If at least one Farmstead AND one Family are remain in the
village, the players win!
Note: Players who have a wound marker on their Samurai board retain it for the next
round. If a board has been turned to the animal side, then it stays that way for the rest
of the game. (Once the animalistic fighting spirit has been set free, it cannot be tamed
until no enemy is left standing.)
In the case of a victory, the players can score their performance as follows:
•
1 point per Farmstead remaining (maximum possible: 6 points).
•
1 point per Family remaining (maximum possible: 3 points).
•
1 point if none of the Samurai have a wound (it does not matter whether
they are human or animal).
In keeping with the level of difficulty, the points scored should be supplemented
by a grade:
•
Easy level: no addition, try the “normal” level now!
•
Normal level: add one + symbol (example: 7+)
•
Hard level: add two + symbols (example: 10++)
•
Heroic level: add three + symbols (example: 8+++)
Last active player
The last active player (the one who drew the last card, or the last one to pass)
gives his Active Player marker to the player on his left.
This player begins the next round.
Variations
Levels of difficulty
There are four different levels of difficulty. The game procedure described above
corresponds to Normal level. The specifics of the individual levels are as follows:
Two-player game
EASY
•
•
•
Number of Barricades at the beginning of the game: number of players + 3.
The penalties for destroyed Farmsteads are not applied.
The Raider stack consists of 6 Plunderers per player. For the second round, add
a number of Lieutenant cards to the stack equal to the number of players
minus 1. For the third round, add a number of Boss cards to the stack equal to
the number of players minus 1.
The game is set up as described above, but with the following exception: The 5 support
tokens belonging to the absent Samurai are placed beside the village, face up.
During the game setup, make sure that the family symbol is present at least twice
among the 14 Plunderer cards kept. If this is not the case, set aside these 14 cards et
draw 14 new ones, then, check again.
NORMAL
•
•
•
AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR TURN (i.e. BEFORE applying the penalty on your last Raider
card), you can decide to use one or more of these support tokens. The effect of each
token you use is added to your own talent for the current round. Then turn over the
corresponding support token. Each token can only be used once per game.
Number of Barricades at the beginning of the game: number of players +2.
The penalties for destroyed Farmsteads are not applied.
The Raider stack consists of 7 Plunderers per player. For the second round, one
Lieutenant card per player is shuffled into the stack. For the third round, one Boss
card per player is shuffled into the stack.
Solo game

Number of Barricades at the beginning of the game: number of players + 1.
The penalties for destroyed Farmsteads are applied.
The Raider stack consists of 7 Plunderers per player. For the second round, one
Lieutenant card per player is shuffled into the stack. For the third round, one Boss
card per player is shuffled into the stack.
Samurai Spirit can also be played by just one player. Take 2 Samurai (or maybe 3) and
play according to the two-player rules.
8
Kyuzo
Talents of the Samurai
When Kyuzo draws a Raider card whose value is identical to that
of another card in his combat line, he may place this duplicate
on the discard pile.
Example: Kyuzo has three cards to the right of his board: one
card with the value 2, one card with the value 4, and a last
card with the value 2. His neighbour, Heihachi, draws a card
with the value 2 and because of his talent, passes it on to
Kyuzo. Kyuzo must now either Confront it or place it directly
onto the discard pile (since its value matches one of the cards
to the right of his board).
Reminder: You are never forced to use your Samurai’s talent. You can combine your
own talent and those of the other Samurai who have supported you.
Heihachi
Every time he draws a card showing an EVEN value (2, 4, or 6)
he can pass this card on to a neighbouring Samurai (i.e. the
player sitting to his left or right). This Samurai must then play
this card, as if he had drawn it himself, and must choose the
"Fight" action.
Katsushiro
Every time he draws a card, he may decide to place it under
the stack of Raider cards and draw a new card. If he does so,
this second card must be kept and played.
Daisuke
Every time he draws a card showing an ODD value (1, 3, or 5)
he can pass this card on to a neighbouring Samurai (i.e. the
player sitting to his left or right). This Samurai must then play
this card, as if he had drawn it himself, and must choose the
"Fight" action.
Note: Heihachi and Daisuke cannot give a card to a
neighbouring Samurai who has passed.
Kiais of the Samurai
Reminder: You are never forced to use your Samurai's Kiai effect.
In certain situations, it is not possible to activate the Kiai.
Gorobei
Heihachi
Gorobei can ignore penalties on Raider cards that have an
EVEN value (2, 4, or 6).
Human: He can add one Barricade to the village.
Animal: He can add one Barricade to the village and
remove one Wound marker from a Samurai board
(even his own).
Important: There can never be more Barricades in the
game than at the beginning of it.
Kanbei
Kanbei can ignore penalties on Raider cards that have an ODD
value (1, 3, or 5).
Daisuke
Kikuchiyo
Human: He may remove the last card from a
Samurai’s combat line (even his own) and give it to
another Samurai (even to himself). This Samurai may
lay it to the left or right of his board, in accordance
with the usual rules. The two Samurai modify their
battle tracks accordingly.
Animal: He may use the effect of his Kiai twice in a row.
If Kikuchiyo has chosen the "Fight" action, he can carry this out a
second time during his turn.
Example: Kikuchiyo carries out the "Fight" action. He draws a
Raider card showing the value 3 and the farm symbol. Since the
cards already lying on his defense side show no such symbol,
he decides to Defend, placing the card to the left of his board.
Thanks to his talent, he can then draw another Raider card. It's
a 2, and he decides to Confront the Raider, placing it to the
right of his board.
9
The Raiders' penalties
Gorobei
Human: He takes the top two cards from the Raider
stack and places them onto the discard pile.
Animal: He takes the top three cards from the Raider
stack and places them onto the discard pile.
The Bosses’ penalties
Frequently Asked Questions
QUESTION: May we count the cards in the stacks?
ANSWER: Yes, this is possible at any time.
QUESTION: Are the cards in the discard pile visible?
1 Barricade is destroyed (remove a Barricade token from
the village). If there are no Barricades to remove, then a
farmstead is destroyed, instead.
Kanbei
ANSWER: Yes, the players may look at the cards in the discard pile at any time.
During his turn, the player must choose the "Pass" action.
QUESTION: Can one Samurai board have 2 Wound tokens at the same time?
ANSWER: No, that is not possible.
QUESTION: Can a Samurai board lying on the animal side and without any
wound markers be turned over onto the human side again?
Human: He takes the top two cards from the Intruder
stack and places them onto the discard pile.
Animal: He takes the top three cards from the Intruder
stack and places them onto the discard pile.
ANSWER: No, it is only possible to remove a Wound token from a Samurai board.
QUESTION: Can I carry out the "Support" action if my Samurai is the only
one who has not passed?
The player sustains a wound.
ANSWER: No, in order to select the "Support" action, there must be at least one more
Samurai still in the round.
Draw a random card from the discard pile, and shuffle it
into the Raider stack.
Kikuchiyo
The top card of the Raider stack is placed, unseen, on
the Intruder stack.
Human: He may remove the last card from a Samurai's
combat line (even his own) and put it on the discard
pile. The affected Samurai modifies his battle track
accordingly.
Animal: He may use the effect of his power twice
in a row.
ANSWER: Yes, the talents can be accumulated and a player can also use his Samurai’s
talent when it is not his own turn.
During his turn, the player may not place Raider cards to the
left of his Samurai board.
Kyuzo
Human: A Samurai (even Kyuzo himself) may give his
support token to another Samurai (even to Kyuzo).
Animal: Same as for the human form, but in addition, he
may add a Barricade to the village.
Human: He may turn over the top two
Raider stack and return them to the top
face-up, in any order he chooses.
Animal: He may turn over the top three
Raider stack and return them to the top
face-up, in any order he chooses.
During his turn, the player can neither use his talent nor
any of the support tokens in his possession.
QUESTION: I have exceeded my Kiai value. At the beginning of my turn, I
sustain a wound from my last Raider card. My Samurai board was showing
the human side, and had a Wound token. So, I turn over my board to the
animal side, remove the Wound token and return my meeple to my battle
track. Must I now pass?
ANSWER: No, the "Pass" action is only compulsory if you are over your Kiai value at the
exact moment when you are choosing your action, right after applying the Raider
penalty. Note that turning your board to the animal side will activate your Kiai if you
happen to be at your Kiai value for the animal side!
During his turn, the player may not carry out the "Support"
action; however, he can still receive support from other
players.
Note: Kyuzo is only interested in using his Kiai for himself
during another player's turn, with it being activated due
to another player "giving" him a Raider card. If he were
to take a support token for himself during his own turn,
then he would have to give it back after his turn, and
thus get no benefit from it.
Katsushiro
QUESTION: Thanks to Heihachi’s support, I am able to pass a card with an
even value to a neighbouring Samurai. I have drawn an even card and I
give it to my neighbour, in this case Daisuke. May he in turn pass it to his
other neighbour?
Author’s notes
The player must select a card from the left side of his
board and put it on the discard pile.
The player sitting to the left of the Samurai draws a Raider
card and adds it to his combat line. Then he modifies his
battle track accordingly.
“Samurai Spirit” was inspired by “Shichinin no Samuraï” (Seven Samurai), the work of
the Japanese film director Akira Kurosawa. As in the film, so in the game: The fair sex is
hardly represented, but the author hopes you will not take that unkindly.
Note: Some Bosses have 2 penalty symbols. In this case, both penalties must be
applied, but the order in which they are carried out is up to the player.

Important: For these last two penalties, the Samurai talents cannot be applied. It
is a penalty card. But adding a penalty card might enable a player to activate
his Kiai in accordance with the usual rules.

Reminder: If a player is unable to apply a Raider's penalty (e.g. a left arrow when the
neighbour on his left has passed), then he sustains a wound instead.
“Samurai Spirit” is quite a technical game, and there is great danger of losing the
first games. Do not be disheartened! Try not to drop down to the Easy level until
you have given Normal several tries, and you are convinced that the Normal level
cannot be conquered.
The difficulty of the games is dependent on the Samurai in the game and their respective
positions at the table (as well as on the randomly shuffled Raider stack). Don’t be afraid
to try out new combinations to increase the fun and to vary the challenge!
The one- or two-player rules can be applied to games with three, four, five, or six
players: Then the game is somewhat easier to win.
