Note #1 Province Tile Boxes. The game is played as a series of power struggles, one for each province. The order in which the provinces are contested is determined by randomly placing the eight province tiles into these eight numbered boxes. The first power struggle is for the province whose tile is in box 1, then box 2, and so on.
Note #2 Luang Prabang. Luang Prabang is the home province of the Lao faction. This province fell under European colonial control in the period depicted in the game. Today it is the independent nation of Laos. In the initial set-up, two of the four follower pieces that start here are always Lao.
Note #3 Ayutthaya. Ayutthaya is the home province of the Rama (Royalist) faction. It contains the Royal seat and the modern capital of Bangkok. The national name change from Siam to Thailand was made by official proclamation in 1949. In the initial set-up, two of the four follower pieces that start here are always Rama.
Note #4 Kedah. Kedah is the home province of the Malay faction. The Malays are an ethnic group inhabiting the penninsula that bears their name and some of the islands to the south of it. In the initial set-up, two of the four follower pieces that start here are always Malay.
