Kaifeng details added, plus a bit that I researched myself.

I'll certainly consider putting something in about that, although it may take time. Your comment reminds me of some classic examples of Jewish humour involving visits to China, which I might add at the same time.

Having seen your comments elsewhere I can see why a variant with Cannons and a Cannonade would appeal to you!

Charles, have you considered including a reference to the KAIFENG in your game?  

KAIFENG is a city in China with a long Jewish history - it goes back many hundreds of years.  There is still a small Jewish community in the city, I believe.  Kaifeng Jews look Chinese, and differ from occidental Jews in that they trace descent through the father's line, rather than the mother's.  

I think some reference to Kaifeng would help to cement the connection I think you are making between China and Judaism.   Just a thought:-)

David.
