Take on the role of a Chinese prince to maximize the prosperity and prestige of your province in ancient China. Though you cannot do this alone, you must utilize the expertise of your various courtiers to protect the province from unfortunate disasters that arise from month to month. Manage your province and withstand the seemingly unending ambush of unfortunate events to earn victory points. The game play is easier than it may appear. Every player has a set of "person" cards. Each round, you choose one action (most of which call on your workers' abilities) to help you prepare for the months ahead. Then you play one person card, recruiting that person and placing him into one of your palaces. Each person brings different skills and abilities to help you ride out the year. (Farmers help you gain rice to survive a drought month, Tax Collectors raise money, etc.) At the end of each round, that month's event is triggered, which may cost you some of your workers, some money, or give you points. Careful planning is the key to surviving "the year of the dragon," but survival alone may not win you the game. 2-5 players. 12+
