Skulls of the Shogun attempts to bring turn based strategy down to a level that people like me can understand, while still maintaining the soul of the genre. With a cute art style and approachable game play, it succeeds. While it is likely too simplistic for veterans, it’s a good choice for those looking to expand their horizons.
