The tiles represent the symbols from the
Chinese theories of Feng Shui. The 5 Elements define various
characteristics of people, places or events. The 12 Animals (also known as
the Earthly Branches) are assigned to the months of the year – and help
to predict a person’s fortune. The 10 Heavenly Stems (two for each
Element) are then linked with the Animals to form a cycle of 60 years,
which also is used for prediction over a person’s life.
Feng Shui for Modern Living Magazine
has taken these symbols and created a delightful game, where the players
are trying to claim sets and series of these symbols – and prevent their
opponents from doing so!
The aim of the game is to get the highest
score from a set of collected tiles. The tiles are claimed by matching the
dice shown on the tile with the dice thrown by the player. Bonus points
are gained for sets of tiles with matching Element colours or for
collecting a complete series of Elements, Animals or Stems.
