Burano Board Game
Burano, also known as the lace island, is extremely famous for its brightly colored houses, and Burano lace was highly admired and widely requested by royal families all over Europe
Players represent a family leader on this little island. They can send men to fish or women to lacemaking to generate income. In order to make a good living you have to figure out how to organize family members to complete the work most suitable to them. It depends on you to earn the glory for your family and outshine all the other families.
The game is played over 4 seasons, 14 rounds altogether. Through the cube pyramid-driven mechanism, players take turns paying coins to operate their cube pyramid during each round. Players select a coloured cube from their pyramid that is not supporting other cubes in the pyramid and place it on an empty space on the board. The colour of the cube placed triggers a certain action such as fishing, lace making, and house roofing, which will earn players Victory Points. As the island has finite space, players will have to start building roofing on these 'house' cubes which will provide new spaces to place further cubes
Round House Board Game
The round houses (a.k.a., Fujian Tulou) are unique rural dwellings that can be found in the mountain areas in southeastern Fujian, China, dating back to the Ming dynasty (17th century). A round house is a large, multi-floor, enclosed, and fortified earth building housing usually a whole clan, which functions as a village and is known as "a little kingdom for the family".
In the game Round House, players are the head of a family who tries to lead their members to glory. Players take turns moving their pawns around the circular building in one direction, performing different actions to get goods, trade goods for money, hire experts, send family members for distant business, and eventually bring the families home to worship the ancestors. By cleverly moving your pawns around the round house and maximizing the performance of your faithful family members, you might become the most glorious family and win the game!
