Feb 16 - Genji Demo

Postby SheepBoy » Tue Feb 02, 2010 12:18 pm

In light of Valentine's Day just a few days before, I will be demoing 'Genji' a game themed on the oldest novel (depending on who you talk to) and is all about wooing that special someone (or lots of special someones!).

Here is description from Z-Man.

"1010 AD: In the Imperial court of old Japan, one book title is on
everyone’s lips: The Tale of Genji, the story of the greatest lover in
all Japan. In a world where nights are filled with furtive romances,
all men at court want to imitate Genji’s success. The most prolific
lover will go down in history as the real Genji!

You are a courtier in the court of Emperor Ichijo in a time in
Japanese history when poetry and the arts reigned supreme. Your goal
is to increase your reputation at court by secretly visiting
Princesses and winning their hearts by writing them the greatest love
poetry. At the end of the game, the player who has the most Reputation
Points is the winner!

Players place beginning and/or ending Poem cards on Princesses in
order to match the symbols of the season, the court fashion, and the
taste of the princess being wooed in order to give the poem Beauty."

Wool for the Wool God!!!!
