I love the anticipation that comes with unboxing a brand new game. It’s like unwrapping a Christmas present. Every single time. Ripping the plastic off, all the unpunched pieces, the game cards, the game boards, meeples, and various other beautiful pieces specific to the game at hand – I get such a rush from this!

Thus, I was beyond excited to receive my Karmaka recently. I was lucky enough to have demoed this at PAX south last year, and was very impressed. I loved the game mechanics, the strategy involved, and the artwork. Let me tell you – the artwork is phenomenally outstanding! It is one of the most beautifully designed games I’ve ever seen. The pictures do not do this game any justice whatsoever.

The gameplay, itself, is also interesting. In a nutshell, you have to use your cards to advance to the next level; however, you must also build up your deck for your next life. You must be thoughtful, though, because the cards you use can be taken by your opponents and subsequently used against you later on.
All in all, Karmaka is a beautifully designed game with solid gameplay. It’s definitely worthy of a spot in your collection.

If you want to learn more about the game read part 1 and if you want to try it out go to the Hidden Dungeon, for there is a free pnp version of the game.

I’m co-founder and co-CEO of my family. I fell in love with modern board games through my husband-who introduced me to Wil Wheaton’s TableTop-and a few gateway games-Castle Panic, Ticket to Ride, and Smallworld. We’ve been playing ever since. I am passionate about board gaming, and try to introduce as many people as I can to it. I am a stay at home mom to my five kids ages 2 to 11. We’ve introduced to board games to them along the way, and they enjoy them as much as we do. When I’m not playing board games I love being outside- hiking, exploring, kayaking-pretty much most things-as well as spending time as a family unit.
