It is easy to play this game with the original rules for Arabana-Ikibiti.

Quote:
1) You may only build to an island if your opponent does not control
it.


2) If you play two cards to remove an opponent's bridge, you may
immediately replace that bridge with your own, provided your
opponent no longer controls either island after the removal of the
bridge.

These rules make the game a little harder and require greater strategy.

How is that different than Kahuna's rules?

if i remember right, one of the rule sets let you build a bridge onto any island regardless of who controlled it. so even if an opponent removed your bridges from an island you could start rebuilding those bridges the very next turn even while your opponent has control.

In the Kahuna rulebook (at least the RGG version), these rules are given as a variant.

In the basic Kahuna ruleset: you may always place a bridge, even if your opponent controls one or both of the connected islands; and when you play two cards to remove a bridge, you do not get to automatically replace it with one of your own. (You need a third card for that.)

With either ruleset, the Kahuna scoring is the better choice, as it seems to increase the probability of a comeback.

If I recall correctly, the original scoring rule for Arabana-Ikibiti is simply that the player who controls the most islands at the end of three times through the deck is the winner. I also prefer the scoring for Kahuna (taking points at the end of each time through the deck).
