Game Instructions
  • Victory: 12 Victory Points
  • Rules: Standard + Volcano

The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa was one of the deadliest and most destructive volcanic events in recorded history. Hopefully when this game is played, your fellow players are not quite as destructuve.

  • Initial Placements: Your first two settlements may only be on the largest three islands

  • Bonus Points: Once the game starts, a player is awarded 1 VP for each island on which he builds that is “foreign” relative to him.

  • Volcano Rules: “Krakatoa” is a subvariant on the Volcano variant, in which three volcanoes make an island as pictured above. Read full rules for the Volcano and print the tile for free here.

  • Robber and Pirate: Play with both, starting them as shown. Note that a Robber will stop volcano gold production, but will not stop eruptions from happening.

Volcano rules can be downloaded here, along with a template for a volcano hex.
