Update: Way of the Samurai has launched on Kickstarter, and the campaign will run for 34 days. There are still some early bird pledges left, if you're quick (Update 8/11: all gone).
Our preview post below was published on November 6.
Way of the Samurai is a solitaire card game with deck building elements. It will most likely launch on Kickstarter tomorrow, November 7.
In the game, you take on the role of the samurai Miyamoto Musashi. Armed with a deck of action cards, you choose a samurai opponent, and begin the fight. The cards give you attack, defense or technique points. The opponent has his own deck which you reveal as you proceed to attack him, to see how he reacts. Both fighters have health and 'ki' tokens, and you may strategically spend your ki to acquire better skill cards.
The campaign also offers a deluxe edition with component upgrades and a few extra cards. You may check the Kickstarter Preview.
