Kachina is a tactical tile game based on the traditions of the Hopi Native American tribe.
Each round you place one of your limited number of Kachina tiles, trying to dominate the largest possible area of the board. In the Hopi tradition, the world is ruled by kachinas (or spirits) of many different types. Children of the tribe learn about these different spirits through the use of Kachina dolls. To illustrate the tension of different spirits in the world, the tribal elders create games of kachinas vying for dominance.
Will the Eagle soar above the Ogre? Will the Clown humiliate the Chief to nothingness? Or maybe the Sun God outshines all in its radiance? You'll have to plan ahead and use your Kachina tiles to best effect to outscore your opponents in this very strategic tile game. You build the board as you go, so no two games are alike. Each type of tile has a different ability.
Can you predict what your fellow players will do and guide your Kachina to dominance?
