Renegade Game Studios and Foxtrot Games will release the first expansion for the popular game Lanterns: The Harvest Festival (see “Renegade Partners with Foxtrot Games”) in January 2017.

Designed by Jason Kingsley, this expansion adds the option of building pavilions on placed tiles. When a player makes a color match on a pavilion, they earn a gift from the Emperor, a new currency which can be redeemed for new actions outlined in the Emperor cards.  Each game, two Emperor cards are revealed. Each turn, a player can redeem two gifts to activate one card and perform the action outlined by the card- which may be extra dedication at the end of a turn, convert favor tokens into victory points, or something else.

The game is for 2 – 4 players, ages 8 and up, and plays in 30 minutes. As an expansion, it requires the base game to play. MSRP is $20.00.
