Is anyone in a position to advise on the relative merits between Lotus and Lanterns? I'm thinking of purchasing one of them - it seems like they have a lot in common and scratch similar itches. Which offers the more satisfying range of choices/decision-making moments? Which is the more challenging?

I'm leaning towards Lotus because of its elegance - in design as well as appearance. But any thoughts would be welcome.

Hmm, I hadn't thought they were alike at all?

I have lanterns and it's fun. I really see it as a tile placement game.

Lotus is pretty, but I haven't played it. It seems more like a set collection game?

Both are light games.
Buy lanterns on ios or android
and buy physical copy of lotus
That way you'll have both.
In the end i believe that lanterns is more strategic than lotus.
Visual is lotus more appealing but a slightly lighter game.

hope that helps a bit

Yeah to be fair I can see that in terms of mechanisms employed they have little in common. I suppose that purely in terms of what I'm looking for they seem to be similar: reasonably short, can be played with non-gamers, small foot print, aesthetically pleasing but actually with enough depth to make it mentally stimulating too. It's that last criterion which I'm most keen to compare between the two...
