I got Yedo the same day I saw the Tom Vasal review and Rhado run. I payed much more than its advertised here, just because the game wasn't published in North America yet. And its worth every penny I spend on it. To the point that If I get marooned on an Island and got the option to have 3 games, Yedo would be second after Arkham Horror.

Yedo is a heavy themed game. It has light bidding mechanics, great worker placement, awesome mission cards and goals to get victory points and acquire the Shogun's favor. Some of you might feel attracted to it if you already like Lords of Waterdeep. Yedo is much better in all senses. The artwork is superb, mechanics are smooth and you can scale the game from simple (Geisha mode) to hardcore (Samurai)on the setup.

The game is played in about 1:45 for two players, may take up to two hours if your group does not take the precaution of downloading the Rules beforehand, is easy to explain but in my group I we have come to the conclusion that if everyone reads the rules, the game night goes smooth. Easy to teach, many options and a lot of fun. This one is a keeper on my Ludoteca!!!

This game is solid in many regards. Its components are very good, the box is nice and sturdy (although there is practically no insert), and the game-play mechanics are very well balanced from what I can tell from a single full play through. Two friends and I played this for the first time and it took us a little less than 3 hours. I'm sure the next time we play will take about 2 hours. Everything you want to complete in this game requires you to think ahead at least 1 more turn. Its very strategic in that regard. The theme comes through very well in almost everything in the game. I've played Lords of Waterdeep and this is a more involved and challenging beast. If you're thinking about buying it because you want a strategic and meaty worker placement with great theme, you will probably enjoy this as long as you don't mind a longish game.

Just simply awesome. This is the only Japanese-themed game I've ever purchased. A friend of mine brought it over for game night and I was instantly hooked. As others have mentioned, Yedo is like Lords of Waterdeep, but more challenging, which is perfect if you are looking for something more after playing Lords. One of the greatest things about this game that others have failed to mention is it has a trading mechanic. I can't tell you how many times I've played a board game and people have asked if they can trade resources with other players. I usually have to tell them no, but not this time! With Yedo, players can trade resources with each other which makes the game even more interesting. More board games should allow trading. A lot of Euros tend to be multiplayer solitaire, which is unfortunate. The trading mechanic does not unbalance the game either. The last time I played, I didn't really have anything to trade and I still ended up winning the game. The need to trade depends on your individual goals and circumstances, and you don't really feel forced into trading. It's not like Settlers of Catan where trading is vital. Watch out for the patrolman!

A fantastic 'worker placement' game, dripping with theme, easy for beginners to learn yet with tons of depth for gamers. One of the most versatile and fun games I've played... can't recommend it enough.

Amazing game. I don't know why this game doesn't get more love. If you like Lords of Waterdeep, you'll really like Yedo. The mechanics are similar, but there is a little more strategy to Yedo and less chance to pull off a surprise win at the last minute. Yedo can be a little more cutthroat than LoW, but the game also gives you the option of of removing the worst cards in that vein.
