Raise Moai in Volcanic Isle by Arcane Wonders

Volcanic Isle is a 2-4 player game where players build villages and raise Moai (the living faces of deified ancestors) across Easter Island. Its designed by Andrea Mainini (best known for designing Sails of Glory), and Luciano Sopranzetti, and published by Arcane Wonders.

“Long ago, Easter Island was once a vast continent ravaged by constant volcanic activity. The settlers of the land raised Moai—gigantic monolithic statues—to appease the gods and mend the wounds of the land. Unfortunately, this very act of sealing off craters and geysers wouldn’t cure their island, but instead caused an even greater disaster to unfold…”

Players strive to build the most thriving settlement despite the chaos of volcanic activity and a constantly changing landscape. When players raise Moai the risk of volcanic eruption increases. Eruptions destroy settlements and can remove entire sections of the game board.

Volcanic Isle releases on July 10th, 2019.
