Notes From Your Bookseller

Since hitting the market, Steam Up has become a favorite among Dim Sum lovers worldwide thanks to its engaging gameplay and charming artwork by Chinese artists. This one-of-a-kind strategy game offers players an immersive cultural experience as they compete to collect Dim Sum while embodying one of the 12 magnificent Chinese Zodiac animals. It is a delightful game that families can enjoy, bringing them closer together while discovering new aspects of Chinese culture.

Our Game of the Year, Steam Up: A Feast of Dim Sum is a competitive 2-5 player light-medium weight Dim Sum set collection and action management game offering a delicious cultural experience.

At the beginning of the game, steamers, filled with different types of Dim Sum, are stacked and placed on a Turntable. Each player takes turns performing 2 different actions each round. Actions include gaining and spending food tokens to purchase Dim Sum in Steamers within their Feast Zone. Players may also play Fortune cards to benefit themselves or affect their opponents. Starting the 2nd round, a Fate card is revealed each round to trigger an event that may affect all players.

The game ends when a specific number of Steamers is purchased or the Fate deck is emptied. Final scoring is then calculated. The player with the most Hearty Points wins and leaves the table with the fullest stomach!
