The harvest is in, and now it’s time to celebrate! Lanterns: The Harvest Festival is a tile-placement game set in imperial China. Players act as artisans decorating the palace lake with floating lanterns. The artisan who earns the most honour before the festival arrives wins the game.
In Lanterns: The Harvest Festival, players have a hand of tiles depicting various colour arrangements of floating lanterns, as well as an inventory of individual lantern cards of specific colours. When you place a tile, all players (you and your opponents) receive a lantern card corresponding to the colour on the side of the tile facing them. Place carefully to earn cards and other bonuses for yourself, while also looking to deny your opponents. Players gain honour by dedicating sets of lantern cards three pairs, for example, or all seven colours and the player with the most honour at the end of the game wins.
