I played the Europe and Africa versions of this game and loved them, so bought the Asia one for my boyfriend's birthday. We played every night for weeks! Really fun, tactical, and you learn something. Good when friends are round.
Unlike the Africa version, this one doesn't have the capital cities printed on the cards. This doesn't affect the game play but would add to the learning.
I also was impressed with the immensely fast delivery (ordered late afternoon, it arrived the next day).
