Immerse yourself if the colourful world of Mandala with this beautifully illustrated card game - complete with soft cotton play mat.
In Mandala, the game is started with a hand of six cards and the central playing mat, displaying two Mandalas and a River and Cup for each player. The Mandalas are separated into three areas, the Mountain area in the middle and the two player areas on their respective sides.
On your turn you can choose from three actions - either you play exactly one card into the Mountain area of one of the Mandalas and draw up to three new cards, or you play any amount of cards of exactly one color in your personal player area. Using one of these two actions, you have to follow the Rule of Color. This rule states, that in a Mandala each color may only be found in exactly one area. In other words: if red is already located in the Mountain area, you can not play red cards into your player area (but you could play a red card into the Mountain area). As a third action you can choose to not play any card into a Mandala at all, but instead put any number of cards of the same color onto the discard pile and draw exactly the same amount of cards you discarded.
After you finished your turn, you check if a Mandala has been finished. This means: all six colors of the game are represented in that Mandala. If that's the case, the ceremony of destruction happens. Beginning with the player who has more cards in their player area, that player choose one color from the Mountain area, takes all cards of that color and adds them to their River and Cup. The position of the color in your River determines how much victory points the cards of the same color in your Cup are worth for you at the end of the game. The game ends either when the draw pile is used up or one player has all six colors of the game added to their River.
Mandala is a beautifully designed set collection game for 2 players. Separate rules can also be downloaded from Lookout Games turning it into a solo game too.
