Japan 1605: Hidetada Tokugawa succeeds his father as the new Shogun. He rules the country from Edo (aka Yedo) the city known in present times as Tokyo. This marks the beginning of the golden age of the Tokugawa Shogunate and the so-called Edo Period that will last until 1868. Naturally the most powerful families in Edo immediately try to curry favor with the new Shogun. and this is where you step in!
In the strategy game Yedo players assume the roles of Clan Elders in the city of Edo during the early years of the Tokugawa Shogunate. The object of the game is to amass Prestige Points mainly by completing missions. To do so players must gather the necessary assets and -- most importantly -- outfox their opponents and prevent them from completing their missions.
There are several ways to reach your goal. Will you try to complete as many missions as possible and hope that your efforts catch the Shogun's eye? Or will you choose a more subtle way of gaining power by trying to influence the Shogun during a private audience? You can also put your rivals to shame by buying lots of luxury goods from the European merchants. It's all up to you ... but be careful to make the right choices for in Yedo eternal glory and painful disgrace are two sides of the same coin!
