It’s back! Last year, our inaugural game of #MegaKaruba was a mega hit. Dozens of players joined us live as we collectively played a game of Karuba together. So much fun was had, we decided to do it TWICE this year.

Please join us Thursday August 17, 2017 at 4PM PT AND/OR Friday August 18, 2017 at 6PM PT for the GenCant-wide game of Karuba! Thank you to HABA for sponsoring our GenCant2017 kick off event.

Tiffany Caires (@TheOneTar), will be hosting our streams of this Spiel des Jahres nominated game. To play along, all you need to do is load up the video stream! Tiffany will call out the tiles on air, and then you’ll just place tiles on your board at home as you normally would. Play along live, chat in the chat room with HABA and other players, and share pics of your Karuba adventure. And don’t worry – if you can’t play live, we’ll leave the video up so that you can play along on your own later. And this matters because…

If you play along and tweet a photo of your board with the hashtag #MegaKaruba hashtag and tag @HABA_usa or comment on this thread, you’ll be entered to win a $40 gift card to HABA’s online store! And, as a special bonus prize, for our kick off stream on Thursday, the winner will also receive a custom Karuba box insert from Insert Here!



*The Fine Print

One entry per person (but share as many pics as you’d like)
Post your picture no later than Noon PT August 19 for entry
If you tweet, you MUST use the #MegaKaruba hashtag and the @HABA_usa handle to be included
Score is irrelevant for entry


Please join in the fun on Tiffany's YouTube or Twitch channel. She will be dual streaming, so use whatever works best for you and we'll see you there!

We hope you’ll join us for our jungly journey this year!

Ack! Sorry, I missed an image. Thanks for pointing out the time was missing. I also put it in the text in case the image doesn't load for people.

Are we allowed to play even if we don't own a copy of the game?

Absolutely*. Print it, draw it, whatever. Just play along. But you should consider getting the game. It's fun.

*Caveat: This is not the official way to play. And we appreciate our sponsor HABA, and hope that people support them and consider using the actual game.

My very first game of MegaKaruba, as well as just Karuba in general. Only 13 points. Hopefully tomorrow will go better.


Friday night's game went much better. I got all 4 temples with 5 tiles to spare for 20 points!

This was the first time I ever played Karuba. I used matching dice for the explorers and temples, with the one pip for the explorer and reducing the temple dice down when their scores dropped.

13 points. Not a great score but I had fun.

That was fun! A cool variant knowing that all tiles will be used. 22 points for me! :-)
