Press info:Ta YŁ is the legendary Chinese hero who saved the Realm of the Middle from a flood by creating a multitude of rivers to divert the torrent to a distant sea. In this game, the players strive to drain water from their lands by skillful placement of stones, representing water channels. The winner is the player who creates the most effective network of channels connecting the flood in the middle to estuaries on two coasts, thus draining more water than the other player. The game plays naturally with two or with four as two partnerships. With three, one player takes the role of the torrent, working to keep the others from creating sufficient channels to drain the deluge and save their lands.
