Play Aid Cards

Draw the Play Aid Cards. Each player randomly draws a play aid card, and takes two follower tokens of the type depicted in the card’s upper-left corner.

Home Provinces

Set up the Home Province followers. Put two followers of each faction (the factions are Lao, Rama, and Malay) in the home province of that faction.

Other Provinces

Set up followers in the other provinces. Each non-home province receives four randomly chosen followers. The home provinces get two more randomly chosen followers.

Common Pool

Set up the Common Pool. The remaining followers that were not set up in any province are placed in a common pool in the lower-right corner of the game board.

Province Tiles

Set up the Province Tiles.The Province Tiles are shuffled face-down and then placed face-up in the numbered boxes on the left side of the board.

All Done

All done. The game is now all set-up and ready to play. The game can have two, three, or four players (with four, play is in two teams of two).
