Product Description

Each player represents a power faction. As China is in the act of expansion, various locations become available for control. Players bid for control using diplomacy points. However, it is not a simple bidding system. Players bid secret amounts and select another player's color. The player receiving the most bids in his color is out. This is repeated until only one player is left standing; that player takes control of the location. Thus players can cooperate to oust more powerful players. The player who gains the most castle locations becomes the emperor. The player who gains the most village locations becomes the Rebel Leader. A revolt ensues between these two factions and the other players have to secretly decide which side they will join. The winning side will gain locations from the losing side. The game, which involves a lot of negotiation, ends once all locations are controlled.
