Bushido: The Way of the Warrior is a 2-player board game inspired by the Sengoku Era of Japan with my own modern visual interpretation. Within this entire game packaging, I have designed the board, 10 unique game pieces, and an instruction manual. The shapes of the pieces and the pacing of the game are inspired by Japanese chess known as Shogi, with my own alterations to the rules. Each piece has a historical reference to the Sengoku Era as either different kinds of soldiers or the Shogun who fought in the war. Along with the board design, I have constructed a sliding tray for both players, so that they can easily keep track of their game pieces.
