To start with, Haleakala was designed by Florian Racky and Marc Klemer, and illustrated by the talented Dennis Lahausen. Beautifully served by its original Hawaiian theme, Haleakala presents itself as a brightly colored, 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 honoring their ancestors’ tradition by offering totems to the Sun, hoping it’ll ease its fury and preserve peace on the island.
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.
