Xanadú is a highly interactive card game for 2 to 5 players. Cards can be buildings with four squares of available resources that can be used by any player (including the owner of the card). To be able to retrieve and use those resources, the players assign workers, which are also cards.
The players compete to earn the most "tong baos", the money in the game, by selling the constructions to the Khan.
Xanadú is a strategy game of building and sabotage, for casual and experienced players.
