Lanterns: The Harvest Festival is a beautiful, thoughtful tile-placement game set in imperial China based upon the best-selling and award-winning board game. The app now includes the new expansion Lanterns: The Emperor's Gifts at no additional cost.
In Lanterns, players take turns arranging colorful floating lanterns on a ceremonial lake. Completing sets of lanterns earns Honor, and at the end of the game the player with the most Honor wins.
Vibrant visual effects, skilled AI, meditative environmental music and smooth touch play translate the delightful zen of Lanterns: The Harvest Festival to your phone or tablet.

Ratings and Reviews
Well done overall, except I can't resume offline games if the app has been dumped from memory.
This is my favourite mobile game at the moment. Everything about this game makes me happy.
The graphics are spot on. It is a lovely mesh of board game and mobile game. It is incredibly easy and intuitive to use, I’m never fumbling or making the wrong move. The music & sound effects are relaxing and suit the tone of the game.
This game works beautifully as a mobile game because it’s solo variations make it a simple game to play whenever and wherever. The games aren’t terribly long (although the length does vary depending on how many players and the difficulty you set it on). You can also play the game online with other people which helps keeps things interesting.
I think the devs did a wonderful job and I’m strongly considering buying the physical game! :)
Beautiful app. Fun game
