Don't waste, use everything: every little thing has a soul. Each player is a worker in a Buddhist temple, creating works to display and sell to the visitors and tourists who come by. These works are made of materials of varying value -- determining both the difficulty to complete the work and its worth to you. Completed works can be displayed in your Gallery to train your helpers, or in your Gift Shop to allow you to make sales. In the end, the winner will be the player with the most valuable completed works, sales, and backorders. Mottainai Mini is a compact version with just one deck. It supports a 2 or 3 player game.
