Description Edit | History

Originally published in 1997 as Arabana-Ikibiti by the designer's own publisher Bambus Spieleverlag, then reprinted by Funagain in the U.S., Kosmos' Kahuna – part of its Kosmos two-player series – is the best known implementation of this design.

It's a two-player game, played on a board depicting twelve islands. Players use cards to place bridges between these islands or remove opponent's bridges. If you get the majority of bridges around an island, you place one of your marker stones on it and also remove any of your opponent's bridges to that island – which might cause them to lose a bridge majority on an adjacent island and lose a marker stone there.

The game is played in three rounds. A round ends when all cards from the face down deck and the three face up cards have been taken. Then points are scored for the islands with a marker stone on them. The game can also end sooner when one player has absolutely NO bridges left on the board.

The Kosmos edition has excellent graphics and nice wooden pieces and plays very well.

5 Tuckbox for Kahuna Cards
I thought I'd share this tuckbox I made for the cards in "Kahuna". I'm not a big fan of the insert that came with the Rio Grande version so I needed something to hold the cards in an empty game box. The tuckbox does however snugly fit into the insert's card slot, though I imagine that may depend on the thickness of the card stock you use to build it. Tuckbox was generated using online software provided by Craig P. Forbes at http://www.cpforbes.net/tuckbox/.
