1840: In Kanagawa, the great bay of Tokyo, the Master Hokusai decided to open a painting school to share his art with his disciples. You are one of these disciples, and more than anything, you want to prove yourself worthy of the “crazy, old artist”.

Follow his teachings to expand your studio and paint your preferred subjects (trees, animals, characters, buildings), all while paying attention to the changing of the seasons in order to make the most harmonious print…

What’s in the box?

  • One school board
  • Four starting tiles
  • 72 lesson cards
  • One grand master pawn
  • One assistant pawn
  • 19 diploma tiles
  • 15 brush pawns
  • Three storm tokens

How to play:

The game plays over several rounds made up of the following steps:

Follow the teachings of the Master: draw as many lesson cards as there are players, placing them on the first row of the School board. These cards are placed face-up or face-down according to the instructions on the spaces on which they’re played.

Broaden your knowledge: pass your turn to wait for more lesson cards are added to the board.

Put it into practice: Leave the school since you’ve learned enough to continue your work. You must complete the following:

  • Choose a column of lesson cards from the school.
  • Continue your work: add all the lesson cards you took to your Studio and/or your Print, in the order of your choice. You can split your cards however you like between your Studio and your Print.
  • Take the corresponding Diploma: As soon as your Print meets the requirements of a Diploma that is still in the middle of the table, you must immediately choose whether to take it or leave it… to try to do even better!

The end of the game happens when one of these two conditions is met:

  • The deck is empty. The game ends at the end of the round, when all players at school have taken Lesson cards and put them into practice.
  • At the end of a complete round when one or more players have at least 11 cards in their Print.

The player with the most Harmony points wins!
