In a large town in medieval China, several talented artisans – Masters
in their own right – aspire to become recognized as Zong Shi: the Grand
Master craftsman. You are one of these master artisans and together with
your apprentice, you are competing with the other Masters to attain this
elevated status in the town. To succeed, you'll have to impress the
townspeople with your skills. How shall you do it? Will you acquire a
specialist's mastery over certain material, or will you enlarge your
workshop? Will you create a large number of smaller projects or will you
build fewer, but greater, masterworks? That is for you to decide.
Zong Shi blends worker placement, resource management, project
completion and special action cards. In each round, players take one
action with their master or apprentice, then take one action with their
other figure. The possible actions include beginning a project, paying a
visit to the townspeople to donate resources in return for a special
action, or obtain a scroll from the temple.
When a player completes his sixth project, players complete that round
and one additional full round. Players tally points for completed
projects, incomplete projects (which are penalized), number of
townspeople visited, a full board of exchange tiles, completion of six
projects and unused scrolls and material. The player with the most
Zong Shi is a game for 3-5 players (best with 5) and takes approximately
an hour and 15 minutes to play.
