Perfection in Imperfection
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with golden lacquer. Kintsugi artisans honor broken objects' histories with stunning repairs rather than throwing them away.
- Draft cards like bowls, cups, vases, and tea jars to create high-scoring sets.
- Different types of pottery score differently, with non-pottery cards adding even more texture to gameplay.
- Some pieces inevitably break — and players can influence which ones.
- Broken pottery is worthless, but players can use gold to repair their shattered collections, and when they do, their value grows greater than when they were brand new.
