Motivation: I want to use a board/card game to introduce Fengshui, one of elite parts of Chinese culture, to the people around the world. I hope that will give people higher quality of life. The next step of my Fengshui game will be free design home space online, and the system will grade player's room and give advices for the room. I think that designing the future looking of players' personal space will be a good way to kill time.

Further idea:

1 The game may have four level of interior design in different rooms of a entire house. The first level is beginning, only include living room. The final level is including the whole environment of the house. 2 More action, more special events card, and more question. Most questions will be choices or multiple choices. Rules will change to: Every action card has one basic element (from five Chinese basic elements) for it. When one player gets 5 action cards, he/she can end game. Players’ final score is the points he/she get multiply a ratio depending on the composing of player’s action card. Like if the player has 5 different basic elements for each action, his score will be his points multiply 10. If the player has 2 different basic elements for all action cards he get, his score will be his points multiply 3.
