|This game is a great combination of theme and mechanics. This game can be a bit of a brain burner because it is full of hard decisions. The artwork is really nice and the components are good quality.
|You can see the disasters coming! You know what you need but competing with others to get it makes for a great game. There are a lot of tough decisions as you decide which workers to take in your temples and how to best use your resources. Turn order changes depending on how many people you have working for you so build up wisely!
|I love the theme of ancient China and the dynasties found in their history. This game puts you in charge of a few palaces and the workers that they can hold. To be successful in this game, you have to be ruthless with your own holdings..... can you let the doctor who just saved two others die to the very same disease? You can if you want to have a shot at amassing some serious points!
|Great game if you can wrap your head around all the destruction you'll go through :)
