Product Description

"Mottainai" (pronounced mot/tai/nai) means "Don't waste", or "Every little thing has a soul". Mottainai refines and transforms the core gameplay of Glory to Rome, and takes players on a journey to a buddhist temple to create various works of art. Each of the cards in Mottainai is unique, featuring beautiful watercolor illustrations of the works. Every one has a special ability, which in typical Chudyk fashion can and will need to be combined cleverly with other cards to outwit your opponents.

Mottainai is a deep, but quick, game experience.

The Mottainai Mini edition comes in smaller packaging for a lower price with one deck, for 2-3 player games. Two copies of Mottainai Mini can be combined to play a 4-5 player game.
