Chai: High Tea is an expansion to the 1-5 player tea trading game, Chai. It will launch on Kickstarter on May 25.
Steeped Games hasn't released much information on it yet, so we'll have to make do with the official description. In the Chai base game, players take on the role of tea merchants competing for the fulfillment of customer orders. In this expansion, an extra double-sided ability board is given to each merchant. These abilities can be performed as optional actions each turn, and when an ability is used, the board is flipped to the other side.
New beverages have been added to the game such as afternoon tea, horchata, and yerba mate, and the expansion rules will be adapted to both solo and cooperative modes.
