    New York in the 1960s. A new wave of Chinese immigrants is moving into Chinatown. The adoption of the new immigration act has launched the district into a demographic boom! It now reaches Canal Street to the north and Bowery Street to the east. Arriving by the thousands, the immigrants seek to buy buildings, establish businesses, and fulfill the American Dream! Take a bite of the Big Apple and use your talents to acquire the most extraordinary fortune in America in Chinatown!

    This is a negotiation game in the truest sense of the word. In it, players acquire ownership of sections of city blocks then place tiles, representing businesses, onto the block-sections. At the end of each turn, each tile you've laid gives you some sort of payout, but completed businesses (formed of three to six connected tiles of the same type) pay quite a bit better. All these resources are dealt to the players randomly, however, so players must trade to get matching businesses and adjacent locations.
