1883. The French have decided to crush the renegade Chinese Black Flag army. The Eastern forces have taken control of Tonkin and the illustrious Red River. The Black Flag army, along with its Vietnamese allies, have been illusive and put up a fierce resistance. A plan to capture the fortress of Son Tay is put into place in the hopes of a quick end to the war. The shadowy army has fortified Son Tay and is confident that the French will be repulsed. The stage is set...

The game takes about 90 minutes to play. One player commands the French forces and the other player commands the Chinese forces. The Chinese side has trained Black Flag fanatics, Chinese regulars, and local troops. Cards vary the game play.
