Press info:In Dynasties two rival players seek to control China through marshalling their forces and conquering the five main provinces of ancient China. But it isn't as easy as it sounds. There are a limited number of armies available and both players have the exact same options to choose from, making the game a question of skill in choosing when and where to use those options and to deploy armies. Deploy them too soon and in the end, a great lead will be lost; deploy them too late, and the enemy will have unavoidable victory!
Game also includes German rules.
