10 years 4 months ago #11 by Old Dwarf
I mentioned that we use a Campaign system in the welcome Forum & I
got a request to post it up. Frankly I don't recommend it unless
you have a rather fanatic Game Group with access to the Games
mentioned below.

The Banzai Rules allow you to use "A Most Dangerous Time:
Japan in Chaos, 1570-1584" a Strategic Board Game,
that covers the 16th Century Unification of Japan,with
the C&C Board Miniatures Game "Samurai Battles".

A Most Dangerous Time: Japan in Chaos, 1570-1584 is
used as the strategic backdrop that generates battles
that are handled by The Samurai Battles Game.

These Rules also include a Terrain Generator System & a Unit set up
system based on another C&C Game BattleLore "Call to Arms" (CtA).
A Solo system is also thrown in & some Special Rules which are
highly optional.

Game Sequence-The Game Set up is as per the
A Most Dangerous Time: Japan in Chaos, 1570-1584
(AMDT)Rules .

I.The Impulse Phase & Action Chits

-Steps 1-6 as AMDT(Note Event Card Solo Rules)

-Step 7-Combat

-For 1 Soldier vs 1 Soldier as AMDT
also for Battles with over 2-1 & Siege

-For all other Battles use Samurai Battles Game
See Banzai Set Up Rules.Note AMDT Event
Cards that effect Battles are not used in
Samurai Battles Games.

-Steps 8-9 as AMDT

II.The End Phase as AMDT

AMDT-Event Card Solo Rules

-Separate Betrayal Cards & shuffle place
face down in a Deck.

-Shuffle remaining Event Cards & place
face down in another Deck

-Draw Event Cards as usual rules but
Roll d12 1-4+ Draw Betrayal Card
5-12=Regular Event Card.

To use an Event Card roll d6 1-4 =Use
5-6 =can't use. Per AMDT Rules you
can try to use each applicable Event Card
but only 1 dice roll per Card.

Note all Betrayal Cards used in Field
Combat are done before Battle set up
so may effect odds of Battle & cause
a Samurai Battle to become an AMDT Battle
or vice versa.

ADMT Event Combat Cards are not used except for
#30 (Emperor Mandate)

Banzai- Set Up Rules-The following Rules are use
instead of The Combat Sequence in AMDT for Field

Note all Banzai Battles use CtA Samurai Battle
Scenarios are not used.

Conversion Rules-Used to Convert AMDT
Counters to Samurai Battle fig.Units.

-Add up the Total # of Counters of Soldier
Counters on both Sides.Then Subtract the
Smaller Side from the Larger Side.

-The resulting # is the number of Figs that
must be removed from the Smaller side.

-A Unit can't receive a 2nd Fig.lost until
all Units have received 1 Fig.lost.

-If loses can't be taken evenly & odd fig.exist
Roll d6 for each odd Unit.Even =no lost fig.
Odd=lose fig. Reroll as needed until correct
# of figs are lost.

-Roll d6 to determine order each odd fig is checked;

4=Sp Inf.
5=Naginata Samurai

-Note Leader Figs are never subject to
