#248: Serge Laget


Our favourite Serge Laget game is Senji. “Senji” is a contraction of “Sengoku Jidai,” or Warring States Period, which refers to over a century of near total civil war in Japan that started in 1467. Scholars differ as to when it ended, but mostly we can agree that it started when I traded Huey my grandpa in exchange for boats and then he shipped ol’ gramps to Louis’ estate. I found this out the hard way when my armies marched on Château Louis to be met with my ex-grandpa. I was a bit miffed, but I was able to use Huey’s boat to steal his best stuff, so I guess I got over it. Besides, Dewey gave me Huey’s son in exchange for some weapons.
