Lead your dynasty to victory in the new digital adaptation of the acclaimed board game!
Found an Empire
Lead your dynasty to victory in the Warring States period of ancient China in the new digital adaptation of the acclaimed board game from Tigris & Euphrates designer Reiner Knizia.
Build & Conquer
Conflict is inevitable as your influence expands. Wage war upon neighboring states to slow their growth, and build spectacular pagodas to increase your own prestige. How will your reign be remembered?
Balance in All Things
Expand your civilization by placing tiles that represent the five facets of a thriving kingdom:
Governors - Keep the peace and quell revolts with a strong civic leadership!
Soldiers - Defend your growing empire -- or wage war upon your neighbors!
Farmers - Cultivate the banks of the Yellow and Yangtze rivers!
Traders - Acquire the resources your people need to prosper!
Artisans - Shape the culture of your dynasty and inspire your citizens!
Your legacy will be judged by your weakest category, so a wise leader must maintain harmony to achieve victory!
Praise for the physical board game:
"It's all very strategic as you build kingdoms and decide the best moment to attack. The game is very intense. It's delicious stress." - The Dice Tower
"Yellow & Yangtze is just awesome. Because you're trying to get a balance of all different colors, it's not just a tug-of-war back-and-forth. There's sort of this circular cyle of motion of different colors that people are going for, and it really makes the game super enjoyable. Overall, this game is amazing." - Board Game Geek
"An exceptional thematic work. Yellow & Yangtze condenses many many years of historical upheaval into a gripping hour of satisfying hobby." - PlayerElimination

Ratings and Reviews
Good Solo mode, but wish there were some key options
Played Solo mode thus far. I’ve played T&E before (IRL and on the app), but only read up about this game. Knowing about half of how this game works, I was able to jump into a game with little issue. Rules can be referenced in-game, and they’re separated out by category (e.g. Actions, Tiles, Revolt) which is convenient. Also convenient is you can suspend and resume games.
AI trounces me even on easy AI difficulty level. I’m neutral about this because even though it’s nice to win, a challenging AI has its own perks. Would like it if we had the ability to pick our own faction, rather than being stuck with the Dragon (and no, it’s not just b/c the Arrow/Archer faction seems to always win Revolts and Wars. That was my preference in T&E as well). Also, add the option to make score public/open info. Last but not least, why can’t I undo the point before I need to select a Pagoda on the board toto steal?
Update are great
Patch took care of the worst bugs. THANKS!
Found one bug though. During multiplayer game, all Leaders on board have my seal, HOWEVER, two are opponents. Thankfully the “swirl” around my leaders are still there, so I know which are which. Hope to see the fix as quick as last time👍🥰

My new favorite digital board game
This game is a Blast! So much fun. I love the combination of abstract game, with subtle strategy needed to win(& which fits the China theme so well). The basic concepts are simple, but winning takes some thinking. The graphics and sound are fantastic. Dire Wolf does it again and I have to say, for me this is even better than Raiders of the North (which is also fantastic!) The Only thing I can say I’d like fixed is to have the ability to hide the banner with scenario goal at top right which takes up valuable real estate.
