    The Tang dynasty (618-907) is considered the first golden age of the classic Chinese garden. Emperor Xuanzong built a magnificent imperial garden, the Garden of the Majestic Clear Lake, near Xi’an as an homage of life itself. 

    Tang Garden is a Zen-like game that will take you to the first golden age of China, where players will progressively build a garden by creating the landscape, placing the scenery and projecting their vision through vertical panoramas. During the construction, noblemen will visit the garden to admire the surroundings and the way the natural elements coexist in the most breathtaking scenery humankind has ever laid their eyes upon.

     

    Tang Garden is played in a variable number of turns. In each of these turns, the player will be allowed to pick only one action between expanding the garden and decorating the garden: Both actions balance each other, putting the player in the position of making simple and profound choices simultaneously.

     

    Players will take turns by playing one of the two actions available in the game:

    1) Placing tiles and matching the elements to increase their personal nature balance and unlock more character miniatures.

    2) Draw decoration cards and place one on the board to get prestige by completing collections.

    At the end of the game, the player with the most prestige will be the winner.
