Chinese history board games

Unread postby Lord_LuBu » Sat Mar 01, 2008 5:26 am

Is there any chinese history board games that you have heard of or played? I have heard of a RTK boardgame and that its pretty good. Any other games about RTK or any parts of Chinese history? I have Shogun and it takes place in Japan and thats a great strategy game. I'm looking for similiar ones that take place in China instead.

You could always make your own RTK Risk game like a friend of mine and I did. :) It works like Risk, except we made a huge RTK game board, cards with the different RTK territories on them, etc.

Here is really neat RTK game that I would love to play, too bad its in Korean I think. I'm looking for any boardgames that take place in ancient china, doesnt have to be RTK period.

I recently ordered a Three kingdoms card game, hasn't arrived yet, I'll post again with more info when I start playing it. I have a friend who I introduced to The Three Kingdoms, he's having trouble reading the books as he can't seem to get the names down, I was hoping that a card game would help him to get the officer names down. He detests Dynasty Warriors, and I can't bear to loan out any of my RotTK titles.

There is a very nice Eurostrategy board game "In the Year of the Dragon".

Even with the minor flaws that it has (to my opinion) it's a really good Chinese theme experience.

A xiangqi game for three.

I think the topic would better be discussed in Gamers' Haven.
