Title: Lanterns The Harvest Festival
Play Time: 30′
Designer: Christopher Chung
Publisher: Foxtrot / Renegade Game Studios
This is one of many games I purchased after watching in played on TableTop on YouTube. It supports 2-4 players, the rules can be explained in less than five minutes, and it plays in less than 30. As such it fits nicely into a time slot where you are still waiting for part of your gaming group to arrive or you want something lighter so you can have a conversation while you’re playing. (Tsuro also falls into this “quick play” category for me.)
Lanterns is one of many games coming to us via the Kickstarter process. I love the fact that independent game designers can get their products in front of the marketplace via this route! Not every game gets funded, and of those that do, not every game is a success. This one, however, I like.
It was recognized as a Mensa Select game for 2015. Continue reading “Game Review: Lanterns”
