All under the heaven, Warring states Board Game

Unread postby Tao Qian » Thu Feb 06, 2014 11:49 am

I've been working in this game for a couple of years, ALL UNDER THE HEAVEN, a boardgame about the Warring States period, and finally this weekend I received the prototype via gamecrafter :D

I have the idea of the game after reading the book "war and state formation in Ancient China and Early Modern Europe" by Victoria Tin-bor Hui.

Right now is only in Spanish, but I hope to have a british version and maybe a Japanese in a couple of months :)

And before someone says that Yue was not there in the Warring States period, I know, but it was impossible to create a balanced game with Chu being so big.

Actually, there was indeed a Yue in the warring state period around where you showed it; there was a Wu as well.

What year are you aiming for for the start?
Unless I specifically say otherwise, assume I am talking about historical Three Kingdoms, and not the novel.

You are completely right...

So then why I added Yue... Ah, I know, because the board is based in a map from when Yue and Wu were already annexed by Chu, but then Chu was too big for being playable. :D

And finally I won my first game (so sad when you loose in your own game :) ) with the kingdom of Qin against Zhao, Yan and Yue. When Zhao allied with Yan he was pretty close to win, actually...

Wow, that looks great.

I know, it was long ago, and maybe nobody will answer my question, but any news of info about this boardgame?
