In The Edict of King Budeaunia, the players search through six piles of tiles, looking for a hot spring.
At the beginning of the game, six piles of nine tiles each are placed
on the game board. Each player has two actions each turn and can use
these actions to either look at the top tiles in one pile; dig one tile
(possibly earning points or money); employ new workers; or get
speciality cards. Tiles can be anything from dirt to hard stone,
monsters or treasures. The game ends when both hot spring tiles are
found. If the same player found both, he wins automatically; if not, the
player with the most points earned from various tiles wins.
Takara Island features the same gameplay as The Edict of King Budeaunia, but with a different setting and modified artwork.
