Product Description

The Pacific Island paradise, Maka Bana, has just opened for tourism. And instead of building large hotels which would disfigure the countryside, the owners decided for an architectural style in conformity with nature: straw huts.

In addition, the government of this fantastic place has announced that the position of Director of Tourism (which includes a private beach), will go to the investor who builds the most beautiful hut complex.

Don't waste any more time -- make your move!

Rouse the master-builder dwelling inside yourself and leap into the adventure! But don't forget: you're not the only candidate for this hotly contested post. In order to get it, you must be smart and put in a lot of hard work.

Maka Bana is an exotic game full of both refinement and below-the-belt punches. Combine your cards to establish straw huts on the desired building sites before your opponents do. A good time is guaranteed!

It's a great game!
January 27, 2006
Maka Bana takes you to an exotic island where summer is the only season of the year!

The complexity of strategy required to play it will satisfy the average gamer. It's super-easy to learn and great to play, especialy with the max number of players.

If you like a small doze of summer and vacation even on a cold winter night, you should definately play this game ;)
