Oh, sweet Oni

I've new a powerful new use for Oni, the rather large, somewhat more powerful than it should be city in Samurai. The game ends when one type of tokens is removed from the board. So, unlike almost any other city on the board, Oni MUST be captured to end the game. So, control Oni, but don't finish it, and you get to decide when the game is over, unless someone else wants to schlep you tokens. SWEET!

The more i play Samurai, the more I'm convinced that the game isn't about capturing things, it's about setting things up for other player's to capture things for you, ala my Oni-ownage in this game. If you can get a ratio of only using 2 tile to capture a token or better, you are having a rockin' time.
