In the troubled Spring and Autumn period in China, the kingdom of Wu was opposed to that of Chu, much more powerful. Facing King Shao, Sun Tzu, strategist of Wu leads a war of attrition. Then, in 506 BC, he openly provoked the army of Chu. At the first skirmishes he simulated retreat and encouraged the opposing troops to pursue him in dispersed order. Chu's troops, now divided and surprised, are crushed one after the other. Sun Tzu enters legend. It's your turn to prove your sense of cunning and strategy in this brand new luxury edition. The simple and subtle rules of the Sun Tzu game encourage bluffing, daring and blows. Sumptuous figurines and beautifully illustrated maps will immerse you in the history of mythical China. Can you establish your domination over the different kingdoms of Ancient China?
