In 221 B.C., all the so-called Warring States are brought together: this is the birth of the vast Chinese empire, ruled by Qin Shi Huangdi.

A single life cannot suffice for such a vast empire: he sends ships to distant lands in search of the legendary elixir of life, and he builds a huge mausoleum containing the scale reconstruction of his empire : in defense of it for eternity, he deploys an impressive terracotta army…

Go along with the Emperor's plans to offer your family a place in the Terracotta Army. To help you in this challenging task, 6 cards will be at your disposal every round: they will give you permanent support during the rest of the game or will obtain you the Emperor’s approval for your actions.

At the end of the game, the player who made the greatest contribution to the Emperor’s cause by scoring the most Victory Points (VP) will be the winner!
