Taping rebellion - Manchu Empire on the brink of collapse. Foreign armies are raised by the imperial to help combat the rebellion. A nice treatment on the subject.

With some tweaks and limiting the Manchu's capability to end the turn at will, it seems to work well. I was able to reach Nanking on the first turn by eliminating the "always round losses up" rule build up into the combat table. This doesn't work, alas, for small battles.

A pleasant surprise. This game is a lot better than the comments on BGG (or CSW for that matter) would seem to indicate. I enjoyed it.

The system captures the flavour of the period. Although the game itself is not very deep, the exotic theme more than makes for it.

An innovative (at the time) design by Richard Berg on the Taiping rebellion. The historical advance of the Taipings is difficult to achieve with the rules as written, but the prospect of conquering China is exciting and the units are colorful (Manchu heavy cavalry, Chinese bandits, Gordon...). Of the dozens of magazine games I have owned, it's the only one I've kept.

I really like this 'zine game about the Tai Ping Rebellion. It marks a sort of parallel civil conflict going on around the time of America's Civil War and India's Sepoy Rebellion.

Great game with plenty of chrome

Only played it once and lost as the Taiping as I rolled a 'snake eyes' which means an automatic Victory for the Manchu!

Would love to play it again one day

- but without the snakeeyes...

Give it a 7 for originality and colour

Probably only for someone really interested in the period

The only game on the Taiping rebellion. Passable gameplay that is boosted by its rich historical flavour. Certainly only a game for people with some understading of Chinese history or at least is intersted in the Taipings.

Once you get used to the asymetric nature of the game turns it flows realy well. Good simulation of an interesting campaign.

A conflict not covered anywhere else. Game appeared to capture a lot of the historical events. The associated article was a good read. May retry one day.
However it was confusing

Very underrated game, but it requires the errata to make it playable.

Perhaps, once War of the Suns is complete, Leonard To should consider giving this conflict his full attention....

It is the only treatment for this war. It seems the lack of interest for this game is partly unfamiliarity for the subject matter (a Chinese Rebellion) and unsympathetic for the course (the Emperor of the "Heavenly State" claimed that he was the brother of Jesus Christ). It is worth to note that American mercenary actually help the Manchu dynasty and fought against the Heavenly State (at the same time as the American Civil War was in progress).
Both map and counters are ugly, but still functional.

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.
