Patterns - A Mandala Game is another area control design by Trevor Benjamin and Brett J. Gilbert. Patterns draw you in as you take turns swapping tiles from the large mandala at your table. Each player attempts to mark contiguous colored areas as territory. Start by spreading the unique tea towel play mat first and making a mandala by all but 2 out of 54 colorful mandala tiles. Whoever claims most point in the end, wins the game.
