Description Edit | History

Yunnan — home of delicious Pu'er tea. For more than 1,000 years, the tea dynasties have provided this sought-after good via their horse caravans to faraway Tibet. The Tea-Horse Road — a network of paths and roads leading through the jungles of Yunnan, across the steppes of Sichuan, and over the peaks of the Himalaya — is the traditional travel route of the tea traders.

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

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

Yunnan is well-suited for players who like tactical development games. Due to the interleaving game mechanisms, the players are involved 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 others swiftly and adequately will win this game, which includes no elements of chance.

13 Japanese rulebook
A PDF file of the rules in japanese language for Yunnan. I have uploaded with the permission from Aaron Haag and Argentum Verlag, the designer and publisher of this great game. Thank you! Ver.1.1の修正点 4ページ本文左段「5つの発展建物」の項  誤:小スペースの1つ(スペース5か7)に置くことで最高入札者になることができる場合、プレイヤーはそのどちらかに商人駒を置かなければなりません。  正:プレイヤーはどのスペースにでも商人駒を置くことができますが(最高入札者になる必要はありません)、小スペース(スペース5か7)には、最高入札者になることができる場合に限り置くことができます。  最初から9以上のスペースに置くことができます。誰かが銀行スペースに商人駒を置くために発展建物から商人駒を普洱の市場に移動させ、9以上のスペースが空いた場合、誰かがそれ以上のスペースに商人駒を置いていたとしても、空いたスペースに商人駒を置くことができます。
