Description Edit | History

YALU is a game of the Chinese counter-offensive against the United Nations forces in Korea. The U.N. player begins with his forces scattered, well out of mutual support range. The Chinese player's troops appear in secret assembly areas inside Korea, some of them actually behind the U.N.'s intermittent lines. First turn surprise rules add to the U.N. plight, and make the first part of the game a desperate struggle for the U.N. player to extricate as many divisions from the deadly trap as possible, in the most rugged terrain in the world, and the worst weather imaginable....

YALU is a tense, well-balanced game, often hinging on moves made in the final turn. Numerous options and strategies are open to both sides, and victory goes to the player who best marshals his forces. YALU can be played in an average of 4-6 hours. Difficulty level is considered average or moderate.
