shanghai_daily_logoThe Shanghai Daily covers the modern board gaming scene in China in general, and Shanghai in particular. Interestingly, it starts off contrasting the hobby not only to video games (such as the Wii) but also to traditional games (such as Mahjong). The implication being that the traditional board game scene in China is still active.

The article mentions board game clubs, game bars, BoardGameGeek, and the games Killers of the Three Kingdoms (like Bang!), Uno, Puerto Rico, Modern Art, Axis And Allies, Race for the Galaxy, Power Grid, A Game of Thrones, Diplomacy, Monopoly Electronic Banking, The Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, and Blokus.
