The emperor desires pavilions be built
throughout the lake to give observers the best view of the lanterns.
Build pavilions, earn gifts from the emperor, and redeem them for
powerful actions to make this the best harvest festival yet!
this expansion to Christopher Chung's award-winning Lanterns: The
Harvest Festival, players have a small supply of pavilions. When you
place a tile, you may choose to build a pavilion on that tile. When you
make a color match on a pavilion, you earn a gift from the emperor, a
new currency that can be redeemed on new actions defined by emperor
Each game, two Emperor cards are revealed from a small deck. Each turn,
each player can redeem two gifts to activate one card and perform the
special action associated with it: make an extra dedication at the end
of your turn, convert favor tokens into victory points, etc. These
actions increase the variety and the puzzliness of the base game.
