The players, as part of a tourist group, travel through this fascinating country and discover its different cultures, traditions and sights. They visit palaces, temples and animal parks and experience the bright and colourful diversity of this land. Tile by tile they collect various symbols to build a pattern called Kolam and the player who creates the longest sequences of these symbols receives the most victory points.

The cards are of quite thin stock however, making them feel a little flimsy but are otherwise functional. The tokens utilities both symbols and colour to distinguish the various types but whilst it would appear this is friendlier for Colourblind players it actually makes it harder to distinguish certain tokens from one another. I feel it would have been better to adopt one or other of the methods and not mix the two or at least pick more distinct colours for some of the tokens. That said it is not impossible to play nor does it hinder the game in any serious way but it could have been made easier.
Players represent tourists visiting India as they visit each city they take a token, which has one or two symbols & Colours on, which is then replaced immediately from the supply. If the city they visit has a festival token on it they gain a card worth 1 VP at the end, each token is placed on either an exchange space (In the first turn that is the only choice) or directly onto their board but has to go on a space connected to a previous token placed there.
At the end of the game players score for chains of similar tokens (so the ones with double tokens can be used for 2 chains) the longer the chain the more points (8+ scoring the most). Each turn players walk or fly to a destination but if someone has flown in the previous turn the next player has to walk which means placing their piece in a city linked to where the previous player went. The piece you collect from the city can be placed directly on your board, swapped for the piece you have on your exchange space and that placed on your board or you can "Buy" a piece from someone else's exchange space. To buy a piece from someone else you lose a VP, they gain a VP and then you swap the piece you collected for their exchange piece and place it on your board. Play continues until all boards have been completed and then they are scored.
This is really a fun game providing plenty of enjoyment for repeated plays and will certainly get plenty of table time.
