Game Overview


You can only order this for Essen SPIEL22 pick-up or have it shipped from our French warehouse.


Dadaocheng was one of the most important trade centers in Taiwan in the 18th century. In this game, players take on the roles of foreign traders who try to become the most prestigious trader of Dadaocheng.



During the game, through swapping and flipping resource discs in the central area, you may obtain resources and either trade them with the rest of the world or invest them to develop your own advantages within the city of Dadaocheng. After six rounds, the player with the most prestigious points wins!



The second edition of Dadaocheng inherits the core mechanism from its predecessor and evolves it into a game with deeper strategies. This new edition comes with newly added player boards and provides more challenges to players in building up their own tableau.

Review by The Boardgame Connaisseur on BoardGameGeek

What makes this game so much fun is the chain reactions and the puzzle of getting enough resources by flipping or moving the discs. Plus the look and feel is great.

Review by What's Eric Playing

Overall, yeah, I like Dadaocheng! I think it’s a smart little puzzle game. It’s got a solidly challenging solo mode, it’s got some good spatial reasoning and combo puzzles, and it’s got a great look and a relatively novel (as far as I’ve played) theme!
