Condtion Notes: Unpunched. Open, but never played. Box bottom has a crease that runs from the lower left corner into the box at a 60 degree angle for about 3" to 3 1/2". Light 1" crease on the front box top, right hand side about mid-box.

Yunnan - home of the delicious Pu'er tea.

For more than 1000 years, the tea dynasties have been providing this sought-after good via their horse caravans to faraway Tibet. A network of paths and roads leading through the jungles of Yunnan, the steppes of Sichuan and over the peaks of the Himalyas - the Tea-Horse Road is the traditional travel route of the tea traders.

In Yunnan, players control the fate of their tea dynasties. Your main goal is to establish a broad and secure trading network to deliver tea to the farthest provinces, doing it better than your opponents. The main work, behind the scenes, is done in Pu'er, your home location: you need to train new traders, acquire better horses, and request a good number of border passes to be able to reach the farthest provinces.

Mere trading is not enough, however, to beat the competition. Great social influence and building a prestigious tea house may come in handy to propitiate the province inspector. Bridges provide shortcuts and trading posts in faraway places secure your own path along the Tea-Horse Road.

Yunnan is well-suited for players who like tactical development games. Due to the interleaving game mechanisms, players are invoolved in the game at all times. The great variety of available actions allows for different strategies. Only the player who calculates well, goes against the proper opponents and reacts to the actions of other players swiftly and adequately, will win the game which uses no elements of chance.
