Every year during summer, the great Shaman tries to contact the Spirit and every tribe sends its own apprentice to help him. The apprentices will have to spend four days with fasting and meditation, in order to be able to perform the ritual and speak the right incantation. However, the truth is that after four days of no rest and food, it might be a little hard for them to remember all the incantations.

In Waka Tanka, you are the shamans and try to impress your tribe by conjuring various animal spirits and discussing with them. But sometimes you don’t remember the right incantation, and as a result you might call the wrong spirit, hoping that no one will notice…

Each player plays an incantation card face down and places it in front of the animal totem. The other players can call the bluff if they think that this is not the right animal. Your goal is to get rid of all the animal cards or collect four apprentice tokens. The first player to achieve that is the winner.

Are you capable of calling the right spirits?

I got to know the world of board games along with NinjaBoy several years ago. So we both ended up getting hooked on playing, until we finally decided to create this website, so that boardgamers from all over the world will gather around. I am a translator and a copywriter. Making this site, as well as working on it every single day, has been a great experience and we are happy to know that it has brought together people who share the same love for board games. So, choose your character, shuffle your deck and roll your dice, for there are some board game stories here to explore!
