The actual gameplay is simply moving the player figure around the main board. A player may move as far as they want, but they cannot go backwards to passed resource tiles or monk tiles. When a player stops on these areas they will pay the cost that is shown on the resource tile, or the space where the monk was placed. This cost ranges from face value, when placing in the shaded areas of a players board, or double the cost when placed in the sunny spots. The shaded side is for gathering income while the light areas are for moving a resource marker. Making these choices is why money management is a part of the game as players will quickly use up all their money. To gather this money back they will have to use scoring discs, or complete a circle on areas of the board with tiles around a shed space. A scoring disc is used, one time each game, on either a single set of numbers on tiles, one space only, used to activate a resource tile, one for the five resources, or activating monk tiles, one of the four monks. The other way money and resource markers could be effected is completing a tile circle around a shed space. Depending on the amount of points the tiles add up to the player will place a shed tile down. Their are five types of sheds that will either move the brewmaster, or allow the player to activate tiles surrounding the shed tile.
The game ends after 3, 4, or 6 rounds, 2 to 4 players respectfully, and players are able to score additional victory points by landing on barrel spaces. Barrel spaces have 12 possbile additional goals a player can achieve for four victory points, or two if you are the second player to take a barrel.
Again, I will say that the game is fantastic! Especially enjoyed the fact that the play continues going to the left no matter if a player jumps ahead or stays behind. This was a quick rundown of most of the rules, but it shows what majority of the things a player will do in the game. It also runs fast as the game can take 60 minutes without taking rule explanation into account. I would again emphasize explaing the end game scoring as players will have to play the game twice to understand the balance of spending money and moving on the production track.
The mechanics are fun and the game is paced smoothly where no one is waiting around for his or her turn. It reminded me somewhat of Monopoly in the best way possible: you are going around a track buying properties to add to your field, and when you pass the starting point you get your resources replenished. It does away with everything that doesn't work in monopoly and adds an actual game to that mechanic where you are constantly making decisions on the placement and activation of your properties and trying to keep several resources balanced.
Player interaction is also pretty balanced in that it isn't cutthroat sabotaging among the players, but you are still aggressively competing for resources and goals.
It's definitely in my top 10 and maybe top 5. Highly recommend this game.
Lo unico malo es que en al llegar a Chile UPS o Chilexpress cambiaron la dirección de envío y se retrasó y gracias a que tenía seguimiento y vi que iba el juego hacia otra ciudad y pude reclamar a tiempo.
