Yong's China Quest adventure game Level 2

Ivory figure of Liu Po Wen

Liu Po Wen (1800-1820) was a famous general of the 14th Century when China was in revolt against the Mongols.  He disguised himself as a Taoist priest and entered a besieged city bearing moon cake with hidden messages inside.  The messages gave instructions for how the town's people were to organise and combine with the troops outside to overthrow their enemy.  Moon cake became popular as a celebration cake.
