Primary Sidebar Search this website Many thanks to you for the very helpful presentation on pricing last night. I found it extremely useful and insightful. Well worth the drive down from Bellingham!
And get it I did. In fact, to be completely fair to the reader, I must mention that when I contacted the manufacturer of the game, they kindly offered to send me a review copy.
You may judge yourself the impact that this may or may not have had on what follows. For those who are either too busy or too lazy to read the whole piece, let me give you the opportunity to skip the details by saying that I really like the game.
The rest of you, read on. While playing, I took a series of pictures with which to illustrate this article, but it seems that I have lost the cable with which to transfer those pictures from my camera to the computer.
The connection is therefore in some ways very superficial, indeed almost accidental. Even without any actual one-to-one correspondence between the game and the movies, each can help to better understand the other. The movie helps you visualize the game, while by playing the game you come to understand the mechanics behind Japanese warfare Technical memorandum van westendorp price sensitivity in the films.
The company is perhaps best known for its war games that strive for historical accuracy, often with the result of added complexity in the rules.
My impression is that these figures are fairly realistic for someone already familiar with the rules.
Your first battle, however, will most probably take about a double the estimated time. As for the complexity of the game, I have seen both more complex, as well as far simpler games. This, of course, in no way makes the scenarios themselves less interesting to play, and in any case I wonder how many people actually are more familiar with, say, the Battle of Sekigahara not included than for example the Battle of Mimigawa included.
In fact, since I cannot claim to be an expert in this particular field, I enlisted for the testing purposes a board gaming friend who is a trained historian working in a library of military science, and thus capable of bringing some relevant knowledge and authority to the table.
The game clearly received his seal of approval, for as I am typing this review, he keeps harassing me with messages about when the next session is to take place. Which, by the way, will probably be quite soon, as I am just as eager to try the game again — not least to attempt to have my revenge after being so miserably crushed in Nagakute!
Rather than each player moving all of his units and then passing the turn to the next player, the system allows for frequent changes of initiative, and a single game turn may easily see both players moving different parts of their army at very different times.
In gaming terms, this means that capable and lucky generals who each command individual parts of your army may be able to move up to three times in a single turn, giving them a clear edge in the battle.
The way the game does this is fairly interesting, and something that I still need to experiment with to make a full tactical use of. On the basic level, however, what happens is that individual samurai or busho generals can enter into head-to-head fights with each other in the midst of the chaos around them.
Van Westendorp's Price Sensitivity Meter uses open-ended questions combining price and quality. Since there is an inherent assumption that price is a reflection of value or quality, the technique is not useful for a true luxury good (that is, when sales volume increases at higher prices).

With a little luck, these individual feats may then change the direction of the whole battle, if they happen to take place at the right moment. My only real complaint about the individual combat system is that while the idea itself is very intriguing, the rules behind its execution are somewhat less so.
This, I feel, could have been made more tactical and interesting by extending the rules somewhat, allowing for different types of attacks perhaps ranging from all-out defense to all-out attack and maybe even mapping the hits to different body parts to make the fight more visual.
Individual feats are important also outside of the immediate head-to-head combat.Search. Barcelona - Spain.
