Hachette Games and GRRRE Games, the creative minds that produced Nidavellir, the hit dwarven drafting game, have announced the release date of their next card game, Rauha, will be June 28.
After millennia of sterility, life has sprung again on Rauha. As a venerable Shaman, one of its five worlds has been entrusted to you. Shape the environment in order to turn this world into a cradle of life energy, keeper of serenity and harmony for the centuries to come.
Alternate drafting cards from your left or right and place the scenes on your 3×3 board, making flora and fauna spring up from the drought-afflicted sands of your planet. After 6 rounds, switch to the Age II deck and see civilizations begin to form amid the fantastical landscapes you’ve created.
Travel around the world, activating a different row or column each round. As you place scenes, optimize an immediate activation or plan ahead to create satisfying combos. Each time you align three matching element or animal symbols, gain divine powers. But watch out, because these powers are fleeting and could very well be transferred to another shaman the next round.
