Mottainai refines and transforms the core gameplay of the out of print 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 had a huge Kickstarter campaign with over 2500 backers, and has created an enormous amount of buzz from fans. 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.
