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

Reiner Knizia Yellow & Yangtze Reviews

They made this a joy to play. Love the graphics, etc. Can knock out an AI game of three players in fifteen minutes. AI was tough, but now we consistently win about 2/3 of games on hard. Only bug we’ve noticed after 30+ games is that when we have two blue tiles and two green tiles and Im wanting to move a monument, it only allows us to destroy a tile (peasant revolt) instead. Havent found a way around it.

Bugs are making the game borderline unplayable. Constantly freezing during tile or leader placement or not registering that you completed your actions. Having to constantly close and reopen the app to redo the same move over again.

They used to be the best company in the digital board game adaptation business. But now they charge you $125 for Dune: Imperium, and dont give you all the components after over 13 months. And support will not respond.

Great digital version of the game. So much fun. The Training and Campaign are great ways for new players to learn quickly and efficiently. Glad that it has full casual asynchronous play (3 day limit) as most digital board games do not.

Amazingly polished implementation of a fantastic game. Developers are responsive to bug reports too! Get this game, it is incredible.

We learned how to play through the app and instructions were clear enough that we could hop in but as we play the strategy becomes more and more apparent, good stuff!

Game is great but when playing multiplayer right now the app isnt alerting us or our buddies that its our turn. Its making the game unplayable asynchronously. Will adjust scores when its working correctly.

Patch took care of the worst bugs. THANKS! Found one bug though. During multiplayer game, all Leaders on board have our seal, HOWEVER, two are opponents. Thankfully the swirl around our leaders are still there, so we know which are which. Hope to see the fix as quick as last time.

Undo feature sometimes fails when first move is placing a governorneed to force quit to make turn work.

Yellow and Yangtze is a great board game, but this app suffers from over production. We found the 3D effects interfered with our ability to assess the board and plan our moves. The animations were annoying. Please consider adding a vanilla option with 2D board and no sounds/animation. This game is too busy; keep it simple!

We want to like this game, but as a new player we find the AI just, relentless. Playing three-person against the computer, the Arrow player always has a copious supply of governors, making it easy for it to overtake everyone else. Like, every single time we play. Am we missing some strategic element, or is the game just that difficult? We mean, we find the game unplayable currently. Arrow cleans us out in like, three moves. Every time, in every mode AI mode.

Tip top. Great app. Keep up the good work.

This game is a Blast! So much fun. We 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 we have to say, for us this is even better than Raiders of the North (which is also fantastic!) The Only thing we can say Id like fixed is to have the ability to hide the banner with scenario goal at top right which takes up valuable real estate.

We loathe Knizia’s decision to keep scoring hidden. Many feel similarly, which is why the T&E app has it as an option. The game just isn’t as fun without that info so we’re docking the review quite a bit. 5 stars if they add that option and a log.

After the logo fades away, the app stays on the black screen and wont load to the main menu.
