Board Description

Balance

This board is an adapted Bagua.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ba_gua

See the tutorial for more information:

http://www.wargear.net/forum/showthread/2867p1

It consists of an octagon with eight sections known as "Yao". Divided into a top half (or outermost) section and a bottom half (or innermost). Each Yao is labeled with a name, found in the center black ring of the board (Kun, Qian, Dui, etc.)

Wood-->Feuls Fire-->creates Earth-->Produces Metal-->Holds Water-->Feeds Wood

The supportive nature of the elements means the top yao of any of the areas grants a +3 bonus in hand, a +2 for the yao title to the immidiate right, and +1 to the one next to that.

(I.e.: If you own Wood, Wealth and Wind, you get +3 in hand, +2 in Li, and +1 in Kun)

Wood-->Diplaces Earth-->Contains Water-->Douses Fire-->Melts Metal-->Cuts Wood

The destructive nature of the elements allows you to attack from any yao title to the Yao title 3 clockwise spaces away.

Each Bottom Yao gives the player +2 Armies in hand, and a production bonus in the Center Yinyang related to the amount of yin and yang energy it holds.

See the tutorial for details on how bottom Yao bonuses work.

Each Slice of the Bagua grants a +5 bonus if you hold the entire thing.

(I.e: Owning Marsh, Knowledge, Mountain, HeavenGenYin1&2 and PeopleGenYang give +5 in hand)

Each ring on the outside of the Bagua grants a different amount of bonus.

+9 for the Forces of Nature (outermost ring)

+10 for the Facets of life (2nd ring in)

+11 for the Natural Phenomena (3rd ring in)

Only those who can achieve a perfect balance between themselves and their opponents can conqure all!
