During the Qing Dynasty, a time before coal-powered travel, citizens of Pingyao relied primarily on camels to cross through deserts, wilderness, plains, and cities to trade wealth and goods. The nation was divided, unable to operate an efficient economy. A national agency of bankers was established as a means to connect all of China. With a network of banking created, wealth began to accumulate, and the city of Pingyao became the financial heart of China.
Pingyao: First Chinese Banks is an economic dice-as-workers placement game in which players assume the role of famous Jin merchants in the Qing Dynasty. During the blossoming age of banking, players expand from Pingyao to open agencies across China, offering remittance services to businessmen in order to earn profits. The goal of the game is to build up money over eight rounds and be the wealthiest player by game's end.
Throughout the game, players must recruit reliable managers to oversee their agencies, which can grant powerful abilities. With cash in hand, players may deposit their earnings to gain interest or offer loans in exchange for government favors and fame. Pingyao: First Chinese Banks also includes a solo mode in which you are challenged by a series of quests.å¨éå å¹´éï¼æåé¦åµäºç¥¨èï¼éè¡ï¼ä¸¦éæ¼¸å·æä¸åéèçãéæ¯ä¸åç¾éæµéæ²ï¼ç©å®¶å°ææ®æ¼ä¸ä½æåå¨ä¸å®çæéå §ï¼8åååï¼ï¼ç¶çèªå·±çç¥¨èï¼æ´¾é£èªå·±çææ«éç¥¨èãæ¾æ¬¾ãåå¯å ãå¹é¤äººæãæè²æãåå®åºåä½ï¼è®èªå·±çç¥¨èééå ¨ä¸åãéæ²çµæå¾èª°æ¯ææåçåäººï¼åæ¸æå¤ï¼èª°å°ç²å¾éæ²åå©ã
