        I played the board game version a couple times back in the 80's.

          Well, poo. Looks like the site is down (I think he did say he was moving elsewhere a couple years ago). Thank goodness for the Wayback Machine!

          Tested out, looks like the ZIP archive of the game is available as well. Grab it while you can.

            Resurrecting my own 5 year-old thread with some follow-up information.

            The original game doesn't appear to like running on newer versions of Windows. The developer's blog gives a link to a conversion utility that can fix the problem: http://cryhavocgame.blogspot.com/201...s-vista-7.html

            However, the utility that he links is (once again) no longer valid. Wayback machine to the rescue once again: https://web.archive.org/web/20120425..._Windows_Vista

            I am happy to report that the utility works fine, and the game is indeed playable (at least on Windows 7).

            On a related note, there is another variant of the game available from the same author. Samurai Blades is also a free download, and also works with the above conversion utility: https://web.archive.org/web/20101023...rai/index.html

            Happy gaming!

              Where do you get the game itself? I played the board game back in the 80s, but lost my copies to my ex.

                Post #5 above has a link where you can download the original. Still works as of this date (just tested it out).
