    In this game, you will rule over the Koreans, who are Commercial and Scientific and start the game with the knowledge of Alphabet and Bronze Working. This is a Monarch-level game. The Korean Unique Unit is the Hwach'a, a stronger Cannon which doesn't need Iron.

    There are a few extra rule changes in this game:
    • The H'wacha has lethal sea and land bombardment and is available with Gunpowder.
    • Instead of Granaries, Koreans use Kimchi Pots. Instead of Wall Street, they build Gangnam-gu. These Improvements are otherwise the same as always.
    • A very old man called Yongwang lives alone on an island from Fish alone.
    This game was created by Più Freddo.

    Tomorrow, the game is released and the competition starts. Yet not a single soul has shown any interest in it and posted a comment in the pre-game discussion. What up, guys?

    Still a bit groggy from the last two games, but at least I managed to finish them without time scramble...

    My impression is: standard size, 80% ocean and 11 opponents... That's going to be crowded...
    And the screenshot looks like we don't have that many land tiles at our disposal. Korea is nice for a research game, but on this map we'll have to rely on the coastal tiles for fast research?!

    Is our task for this game to find out, what Yongwang is good for...? :)

    Yongwang is immovable. He catches his own fish and costs no mainenance. He will calm the populace down somewhat under Governments that allow this. That's all. The story has it, there were once many Yongwangs around Korea, who collected this large map of the wide surroundings. Only one now remains.

    That looks like a nice map to me, and fertile region for my nation to develop. I hope to someday develop a temple for Yonwang to worship, and a beautiful city that my people may behold from the shore. I suspect there is more to the Yongwang than meets the eye.

    We've had absolutely no spoiler at all in this game. How is it going? Is anyone playing it at all!?
