History + Games = This

A game about the Opium Wars between Britain and China – you become the profit-hungry tea-trader.  Fun fact, this is what Franklin D. Roosevelt’s grandfather did.  FDR thought his grandfather was super awesome for being such a good opium trader and did not like the Chinese one bit for not wanting his grand-daddy to ship opium to their country.

True story.
