In the Year of the Dragon is a game where each player takes on the role of a Chinese prince, seeking to maximise the prosperity and prestige on his province in ancient China of approximately 1,000 AD. To assist in these endeavours, the princes must call upon the diverse talents of their courtiers, from scholars and monks to warriors and craftsmen. These loyal subjects will lend their expertise to the struggle to shield their rulers from the often disastrous consequences of the myriad untoward events that plague the populace from month to month. Be it drought, contagion or Mongol invasion, only foresight and planning will spare the princes and their subjects from these fates.
