Characters in the game are all Khans, leaders of the Mongol Horde. They have several Modes (roughly, Attributes) with numeric Ratings. The various Modes describe methods the Khan uses to interact with followers, and include: Companion, Accuser, Informer, Leader, and Honor. Play proceeds atypically, in structured phases, with character selecting proscribed moves to execute during each phase. Some actions result in Rating points being transferred between characters.
Several aspects of the game mechanics are fairly confusing; examples of play unfortunately are not provided.
