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?

Hi,

Long time indeed. The boardgame is now completely finished (after discovering that 3 different versions of green was not a good choice for the troops of 3 different countries :D ).

I'm searching for a publisher right now in Spain, not sure if trying to send it to someone in the States since they would have to translate the game into English...
