Easy to learn, Gaïa is fast paced game which involves tile placement, area control and influence with a twist of power cards.

A game lasts around 30 to 45 minutes.

Gaïa is a 2 to 5 players game

(good even if your are only 2 players)

 

In Gaïa you will:

  • Create a world.
  • Create life.
  • Build cities…
  • …and try to satisfy their needs!
  • Use godly powers to shape the world to your benefit.

No victory points in this game: you have 5 wooden meeples. Place them all on the board to win!

There are 2 levels of rules in Gaïa:

  • Basic rules allow you to play from 8 y.o. with a simple mechanism and a pacific game.
  • Advanced rules will give you the opportunity to use godly powers to shape the world after it has been created (with lightnings, volcanoes, rain, sun, earthquakes…). You can even steal the opponent’s cities. Of course, it’s a more aggressive game with a higher level of strategy.
