Become a 19th century tea/opium smuggler!

Yes, you too can trade opium for tea on the high seas in “High Tea”, from Wellcome Collection. Command a fleet of boats and choose the best deals to meet the tea demands of the 19th century British. Supply successfully, retire a wealthy merchant!

Short and sweet little game I found while perusing the tea-related internets. It doesn’t really educate about the Opium Wars but instead just puts forth the idea that hey, Britain traded a ton of opium for tea back in the day. The more you know. Now that I think about it, the tea trade could make for an interesting commerce/economics game.

Tip: Don’t run out of opium.
