High Tea

Share Collapse

Author Comments

High Tea is a strategic plate-spinning game, you play an independent British smuggler selling opium in China's Pearl Delta.

Buy cheap and sell high to make a profit, but make sure you also obtain enough tea to keep Britain happy. You have ten years before the opium wars begin - can you make your fortune?

Based on historical events, this game also shines a light on a questionable episode in the history of the British Empire.


High Tea

Drugwars, 1830

Well-made graphics, easy-to-understand instructions, and informative scenes make for a quick and fun game to play during free time.

Fun fact: My great-grandfather worked under Lin Tse-hsu during this period.

Yes, quite.

I felt so British while playing this game that I almost came up with an axent. But seriously speaking, this game is awesome. The graphics are done prophecionally (I mean the view from the clouds! *sigh*) and the straight-from-the-history-books -story sets up the mood really nice. The game also offers enough room for stragedy without being too complicated. And it's challenging too!

Ps. I wondered if drinking tea would affect my scores and guess what: I actually scored higher!
