UPDATE 7/24/14: I contacted Mayfair customer service about the boards via email. They got back to me within a day and asked I send them pics of the warped boards. Within 30 minutes of sending the pictures, they emailed me back that new boards were on the way. I just received them a few minutes ago and they are much better. Any company can make a mistake or have product issues. But only good companies deal with the trouble as well as Mayfair did. I'm happy.
This is a really fun game that will live on for a long time in our home. It is fun, educational an will change with every game. I think that each time one plays it, one can get better and better. This should continue into adulthood.
It is not too hard for my kids now, even my daughter who often gets frustrated with complex strategy games. If you are not too great with strategy, you can still play and have fun. The better your strategy abilibies are, the better you will make out in the game, but it is still fun for everyone. Also, it is easy to learn from eachother and to grow in abilities.
It is extrememly educational both in learning the Chinese geography as well as in thinking strategically.
In China Rails, first edition, the prices of the commodities don't seem to be quite right. Who ever decides to go pick up cotton first, usually wins the game. It costs too much to build to sheep, so no one ever goes there. There are too many rivers! How inconsiderate of China to have so many rivers - really! :)
But in spite of these minor problems, the game is a lot of fun. We enjoy exploring China in this manner, and it encourages the girls to look things up online, to find out more about China, her major cities, and the products produced there.
I think all schools should stock these games - what a great way to learn geography, economics, and review basic math skills!

Good game but tougher than others in the series. Full of surprises and twists. Event cards can change the game dramatically.Published on April 12, 2013 by Robert K. Kiczula
