Components: Excellent component quality with thick cardboard and nicely sculpted plastic bits. Beautiful art that captures the theme nicely.
Game Setup: Rules were clear and setup took about 10 minutes our first time. Subsequent setups probably in the 5 minute range.
Mechanics: Tile laying, special powers, set collection.
Game Play: Choose a tile to place to construct point scoring opportunities for yourself, choose characters to define how you will score points, and activate special powers,
Last Word: Scoring by line-of-sight is a unique mechanic that plays out really neat. There isn’t a lot like Tang Garden out there for this reason alone. Its easy and fun to play as well as a different twist on tile laying games and the bling really makes it look pretty while its on the table. We’re looking forward to subsequent plays of the base game and also adding the expansions.
