well, this one cost me some time.

I got it.

I need to be a 能工巧匠(very competent worker/craftsman) on the art of Chinese language to hammer out the answer for Barbara.

How about that?

as 帷幄 wei2 wo4 stands for 帐幕, it’s not such a challenge, after all, because what good is there in too much planning ahead? Isn’t it much nicer to live free and careless? 幕天席地 mu4 tian1 xi2 di4

Sorry about that Barbara. I didn't notice it.

Good transformation! I believe that's the very value of this game.

In this modernized planet people can hardly find enough place to live freely and carelessly, unless in a country with considerable countryspace as well as intensive production 地大物博 (di da wu bo/)
