Strategy in the far east: Japan, China, the Pacific
I'm a fan of turn-based strategy games, but I have to admit I've never played KOEI games. KOEI was a Japanese company founded in 1978 (!) known for the Romance of the Three Kingdoms and Nobunaga's Ambition series. Romance of the Three Kingdoms wasn't the only game that deserve some praise. With this update I bring on Abandonware DOS the Gengis Khan series, a turn-based strategy very similar to the early Romance of the Three Kingdoms games, and a few more.
Also, Sword of the Samurai, a game very similar to Pirates! and one of the Gary Grigsby's wargames.
