Dire Wolf’s digital board game catalog expands with strategic tile-placement from legendary game designer
DENVER CO. – September 30, 2019 – Today Dire Wolf announced that their digital adaptation of Dr. Reiner Knizia’s acclaimed board game Yellow & Yangtze is now available via Steam Early Access, and will be releasing on iOS and Android devices in the coming weeks. Following the recent cross-platform release of Raiders of the North Sea, Yellow & Yangtze is the second title in a new wave of digital board game adaptations from Dire Wolf.
Deploy Governors, Soldiers, Farmers, Traders and Artisans in the Warring States period of ancient China. Survive the conflicts of expanding civilizations, and watch your kingdom flourish – but despots beware! The winner is decided by the strength of your weakest category, so balance is a must.
Yellow & Yangtze is the spiritual successor to Tigris & Euphrates, one of the most highly regarded board games of all time. Tabletop Gaming UK praised Yellow & Yangtze as “Far, far more than just Tigris & Euphrates with hexes, Yellow & Yangtze is a worthy successor to a bona fide masterpiece.”
Scott Martins, president of Dire Wolf, says, “We’re excited to have the opportunity to be working with Dr. Knizia on bringing Yellow & Yangtze to life on digital platforms. We’re also looking forward to collaborating with fans during Early Access to polish the current build of the game, prior to release this year.”
Dr. Knizia says, “I am very impressed. It is one of the most professional and powerful implementations I have ever seen of one of my games.”
