In a time when early sea-faring Polynesians roamed the Pacific they came across the archipelago of Tungaru, today also known as Gilbert Islands. Rich in nutrients and resources they set about colonising these lands and spreading their culture.
Tungaru sets players as early Polynesians in this dice placement and resource conversion, medium-weight euro game. Players will jump from island to island in an effort to recruit Nomads as new tribe members, colonise land, spread their culture and exchange goods. Players use dice as workers, Leader cards which are blind revealed which are then given to your neighbour and custom shaped meeples specific to their tribe. All in an effort to be the most successful tribe!

Glad I didn't play 5 players, it would have really ruined the experience. It was already TOO MUCH. There are a lot of good ideas and mechanics in the game, but would be better with a lot of refinement. Glad to have tried it.

Deluxe Kickstarter, arrived here in NZ 23 Dec 2020. Well implemented Euro with multiple VP paths that appear well-balanced. Pretty, great components (deluxe edn), nice linking of theme to rules makes explanations and remembering exceptions easy.
