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… the one that will become the work of your lifetime!
The simple and original mechanics are as follows: In front of you are placed as many Lesson cards as there are players, face-down or face-up. Taking turns, you can decide to take one column or to pass, hoping to get better cards afterwards. When taking one or more cards, you can choose how to place them: added to the Print to assign them to your painting if you have the right Landscape, or added to the Studio to upgrade your abilities and gain new proficiencies with Landscapes.
Will you immortalize your art by collecting sets of fauna, flora, seasons, architecture, or even portraits? Take your time learning lessons, but be careful of other artists stealing your ideas!
