The Tang dynasty was considered the first golden age of the classical and now iconic Chinese gardens. Emperor Xuanzong built the magnificent imperial Garden of the Majestic Clear Lake as an homage of life itself.
Tang Garden Scenarios
After the base game setup, draw 4 tiles per stack to form a fifth stack composed of 16 tiles that will be placed face-down, aside of the board. Draw three tiles from this new stack to form the market.
When a player decides to "expand the garden", instead of performing the normal action, they may choose to take a tile from the market by following these rules:
- If there are three face-up tiles, the player will have to pay a coin to take one of the three tiles.
- If there are two face-up tiles, the player will be able to get one of the two tiles for free.
At the end of the turn, if the market has only one face-up tile, draw two new tiles to replenish the market.
Note: The tiles in the market can also be taken with the lantern to place two tiles.
