About this 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 cycle of motion of different colors that people are going for, and it really makes the game super enjoyable. Overall, this game is amazing." - Game Boy Geek

"An exceptional thematic work. Yellow & Yangtze condenses many many years of historical upheaval into a gripping hour of satisfying hobby." - PlayerElimination

Bit of a learning curve on this one, but once you get it ... it is amazing! Fullscreen and works great on my chromebook. The animation, controls, interface, and gameplay all work great. Just a captivating game once you learn how to play. Very strategic! It is a good mix of civ building, conflict area control, and tile placement. Big fan of Dire Wolf Digital games and this is another great one! Thank you to all who put this game app together. Can't wait to see more digital titles!

I'm dropping my rating because I'm finding it harder and harder to believe that the computer isn't cheating. For 6 games in a row i initiated a revolt once i had 4 grey guys in my hand. The computer always had exactly the right number to win. In one case I watched it play 5 from it's hand before and it STILL had the 5 it needed to win. This seems to be happening with soldiers as well. The whole experience feels lame. Please give an option for visible hands or at least an end-game log

I've changed my rating from 2 to 4 stars after 2 weeks of playing. It can be fiddly at times -especially dragging leaders from one board space to another. However the gameplay more than makes up for this and the app conveys this excellently. The campaign mode is a great way to hone your skills and adds something new to the original. Great stuff!
