Product Description

Günter Cornett's Chinagold – a two-player game in which players search for gold in the mountains or rivers, with those areas constantly overlapping – first debuted in 2004 in a limited edition of 333 copies. On a turn, a player throws three custom dice, then turns face-up a line of tokens equal to the sum of the dice roll. Whenever a section of mountain or river shows gold on all the spots, the player who controls that type of territory claims the gold.

As I noted in a May 2010 news item, Cornett is working with artist Anita Luxem to produce custom versions of Chinagold with hand-painted images and burned-in lettering. Copies of this new edition will be available at Spiel 2010, but Cornett says he'll likely have only 3-4 copies, so contact him through the Bambus website if you know this is the game for you. Aside from this deluxe edition, Chinagold is also returning in a new "produced" (i.e., not handmade) edition that Cornett says should be completed by the opening of Spiel 2010. More details about that version when they're available.
