    This is a puzzle style tile layer from Michael Kiesling which plays over 6 rounds. At the start of each round 6 tiles per player are placed in the centre of the table then each player takes turns taking and placing a tile, the tile must be placed on the players own 6×6 grid, this continues until all tiles are gone, then a new round starts. The tiles themselves cover 1, 2 or 3 squares and one of the square sections will contain one of 6 land features, these are also marked down the side of your grid. The normal tile placement rules you would expect apply with the addition that the land feature on your tile MUST be placed on the relevant row of your board, you may only place a feature in each column once during a round placing a lantern at the column head when you do so, thus placements have to be planned carefully so you can always place one of the tiles that are left. To ease congestion tiles may be placed on higher levels as long as they are fully supported, scoring is done after each action and is simply the size of the tile times its height on the grid. Additional points come for land feature majorities at games end and for being the first to lay a particular land feature at the 5th level. Overall a very nice game that has you thinking but without being a brain burner, it is suitable as a family game but should also appeal to gamers, I have certainly enjoyed playing it.
