There's a translation on BoardGameNews. AIR it is a bit ambiguous in a few points, but either side of those ambiguities plays well.

It remains best with 3.

This was discussed in another thread (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/107764) some time ago, and this is what we came up with.

-----------------------------------
Variant: Border Disputes
With special downloaded map
Can be played with 3 or 5 players.

The instability in China continues to grow. The borders are increasingly neglected by the provincial leaders, inflaming the existing conflict.

Follow the standard China rules, with the following changes:

It is played without fortifications.

Border Houses
- There are 6 border house spaces (indicated by a circled house).
If a player builds a house there, it counts for both adjacent provinces.
- In order to place a house on these border spaces, a player must meet one of two conditions:
a) The player plays a suitable card from each of the two adjacent provinces
or
b) The player plays two suitable cards from one of the two adjacent provinces.
- It is possible to build a border house and a normal house if the player does not violate any placement conditions.

It is important to note that a border house counts for first placement into a vacant province.

- In all other ways, a border house is played and scored exactly the same as a normal house.

Ports
There are 7 house spaces with anchor symbols which indicate a port.
Points earned for ports are scored the same as for houses within a province.

Example: All 7 ports are occupied. Player A occupies 4 ports, and earns 7 points (all ports). The player with the second most ports scores 4 points (the count of player A's ports), etc.. [/q]

The rules do say 3 or 5, which seems a bit odd to me.


Thank you.

Having played more than a dozen games: Like basic China, it remains best with only 3 players.

That's correct. Well spotted, Ville.
