Kachina Board Game Review


In the Hopi Native American tribe, the world is ruled by Kachina (or spirits) of many different types. In this tile-laying game, players compete to dominate rows and columns of Kachina by using their values and special powers.

  • 2-5 players
  • Ages 8+
  • Play Time: 15-30 Minutes

What’s Cool:

  • Nice summary cards.
  • Fast paced and Easy to teach.
  • Nice production quality and rule book.
  • Great theme and concept.
  • Good strategy and luck elements combined.

What’s Not:

  • Should have two languages on the summary cards.
  • Towards the end of the game, whatever you draw will dictate your move.

Neutral Information:

  • There is also an iphone version of this game.

    Hey, The stacking is the ability of that tile, it “replaces” another tile.
    We won’t be looking at games other then Board Games… for now.
    If you’re into Video Games, you can check out Gamespot.com.

  2. Interesting looking game. I think I missed how players stack tiles on other tiles, which looked like it was happening in the video. The player scoring tokens look like they could use more visual difference to ease scoring. Overall looks fun.

    There’s an app for that. Will you cover any board games in the digital realm? The iphone/ipad are huge markets with many board games being ported over.
