The Great Wall of China
Only the most cunning will win! The scene is China in the first century BC. The Great Emperor Shi Huang Ti has unified the formerly warring Chinese provinces under his stern rule and he has ordered the building of a Great Wall to protect his fledgling Empire from raiding Mongols.
The players take the roles of regional nobles, eager to impress the fearsome ruler. Whichever player contributes the most to the building and manning of the Great Wall will earn the Emperor's favor. Will you use honor and ingenuity to build the longest wall section, or guile and trickery to disrupt their opponent's progress? (from the back of the box)
