Racky and Marc Klemer, and illustrated by the talented Dennis Lahausen. Beautifully served by its original Hawaiian theme, Haleakala presents itself as a brightly coloured, easy to learn, fast paced, 2-player game that anyone can enjoy with any friend or family member.
In this game, players take on the role of Makuakane and his son, Keiki, who cherish the goal of honouring their ancestors tradition by offering totems to the Sun, hoping it’ll ease its fury and preserve peace on the island.
Each opponent will try to score points by erecting as many totems as possible around a dangerous volcano that threatens to erupt at any moment, ruining all of your hard work but there’s more!
There’s usually a lot of cool things to do on any island, and Haleakala doesn’t differ with tons of sea food to fish, butterflies to catch and precious shells to collect among many other activities.
It won’t be long before you realize all the depth and the different strategies you could elaborate to cumulate the most points in this original worker placement game.
