The exciting strategy game of Gods, Goods and Greatness
Game Idea
GAME IDEA
Stake your fortunes in the mysterious island world of Bora Bora. Journey
across islands, building huts where the resilient men and women of your tribes
can settle, discovering fishing grounds and collecting shells. Send priests to
the temples, and gather offerings to curry favor with the Gods.
Players build huts and populate
them with men and women, who
help them during the game. They
also send priests to the temple to
influence the Gods
In Bora Bora, players use dice to perform a variety of actions using careful
insight and tactical planning. The player who best watches how the game
develops and uses the most effective strategy will prevail.
The winner is the player with the most victory points at the end of the
game.
Play progresses by adding dice to
perform actions
The player with the most victory
points at the end of the game is
the winner

Game Setup
Place the game board in the middle of the table. It shows:
“Fishing” action space
Scoring track (0-100)
5 islands with a total of
12 regions (3 each of
mountain, beach, forest
and plains)
Status track
Temple
each region has one
building space
Jewelry tile display
Regions are connected by
either land paths or
water paths
Task tile display
Summary of a game round
Man and Woman tile display
Place the building materials, shells, and offerings in a common supply next
to the game board, easily accessible to all players.
Place action tiles – depending on player count – face up next to the game
board:
● 2 players: 5 tiles ⇨ Helper, Temple, Build, Man / Woman (together),
Land / Water Path (together) (see also page 11)
Set out all building materials,
offerings, shells, and 5 - 7 action
tiles
● 3 players: 6 tiles ⇨ Helper, Temple, Build, Man, Woman, Land / Water
Path (together) (see also page 11)
● 4 players: 7 tiles ⇨ Helper, Temple, Build, Man, Woman, Land Path,
Water Path
Randomly place the 12 fish tiles face up onto the spaces
intended for them adjacent to the 12 regions, so that one tile
is next to each region.
Add a fish tile face up to each
island region
Separately shuffle the man and woman tiles (36 of each), and place them
face down in two separate supply piles next to the game board. Draw 6 from
each pile and place them face up onto the orange and turquoise spaces in the
bottom right hand corner of the game board.
Draw 6 man and 6 woman tiles
and add them face up to the
game board
Separate the 7 light green and the 53 dark green task tiles, and shuffle each
pile. Give each player one randomly-drawn light green (crane) tile and two
randomly-drawn dark green (parrot) tiles. Players will place these tiles later
in any order they choose face up onto the three spaces intended for them in
the lower right hand corner of their player boards (see next page). Remove the
remaining light green tiles from the game and place the remaining dark green
tiles in a supply pile next to the game board. Draw additional dark green tiles
equal to player count plus two (i.e. 4 to 6 tiles) and place them face up onto the
corresponding spaces on the game board.
Separate the light and dark green
task tiles; shuffle each pile and
pass out 1 light green and 2 dark
green tiles to each player
Shuffle the 24 jewelry tiles and then randomly place them face up onto the
6 x 4 jewelry tile display spaces intended for them on the game board.
Place all 24 jewelry tiles face up
on the game board
H 22h
Place 4 to 6 dark green task tiles
face up onto the game board (e.g.
4 tiles for a 2-player game, 5 for
3, 6 for 4 players)
Place 6 of the 10 God tiles in a pile on the corresponding temple
space on the game board.
Place 6 God tiles in a pile on the
temple space
Shuffle the God cards and place them in a pile face down next to
the game board. Draw and reveal the top five cards, placing them next to the pile.
Shuffle the God cards and form a
draw pile; reveal 5 cards
Give each player:
● 1 player board in his color;
● 12 huts in the same color, placed on the 12 corresponding hut spaces on
his player board;
● 6 building tiles in the same color, placed dice-side up on the 6 corresponding spaces on his player board;
● 1 God tile, placed on the corresponding space on his player board;
● 3 dice in the same color, placed next to his player board;
● 4 priests in the same color, placed next to his player board;
● 2 God cards drawn from the pile, and added to his hand (hidden from the
other players);
● 2 offerings from the supply, placed next to his player board;
● 1 turn order tile (randomly drawn), placed next to his player board.
When playing with fewer than four players, return all unused game components (huts,
priests, building tiles, dice, as well as unused turn order and God tiles) to the game box.
Now the player who drew the #1 turn order tile places one of his markers on the victory point starting space on the scoring track (marked “0/100”), and the other marker on the status track below the 0 space. The second player places his first marker
on the 1 victory point space on the scoring track and his second marker underneath
the start player’s on the status track. The remaining players follow
in turn (first markers on the 2 / 3 victory point space, and second
markers underneath the previous player’s on the status track).
Give each player:
● 1 player board
● 12 huts
In reverse turn order, each player:
● places one of his huts on an empty building space on one of the four
regions next to a 1-fish tile on the central game board;
● receives from the general supply the resource corresponding to the one
indicated on his region, i.e. either a building material (sand, wood or
stone), or an offering tile;
● immediately either places the building material on a free, matching
ceremony space on his player board, or places the offering tile next to
his board.
Continue in reverse turn order to the next player, and so on. Ignore the fish
tiles of those regions for now.
In reverse turn order, each player
places 1 hut onto a 1-value region
(and takes the building material or
offering tile)
● 6 building tiles (dice-side up)
● 1 God tile
● 3 dice
● 4 priests
● 2 God cards (hidden)
● 2 offerings
● 1 turn order tile
Place one marker on the scoring
track (0-3 VP) and the other
below the 0 space on the status
track (position depending on turn
order)

game rules
GAME RULES
(for 4 players)
The game lasts six rounds, with each round consisting of three consecutive
phases – A, B and C (see summary on the bottom left corner of the game board).
6 rounds, each with phases
A, B and C
Phase A: Roll and place dice, carry out actions
PHASE A
Players simultaneously roll all three of their dice. The first player chooses one of
his dice and places it on the action tile of his choice and immediately carries
out the corresponding action. The next player then does the same, placing one
die and carrying out the corresponding action. Play continues, in turn order,
until all players have placed their three dice.
Important! When placing a die on an action tile, you can only place
a die showing a value that is lower than the lowest value currently
on that action tile (regardless of color). (Exception: Blue God, see
Don´t forget
page 10)
Players simultaneously roll all
3 dice
In turn order, players place their
first die and carry out the corresponding action; then they do the
same for the second and the third
dice
Example: A 5 and a 3 are currently on an action tile. You could place a 1 or 2 there
but not a 3, 4, 5 or 6.
The values of the dice on an action
tile must always decrease (Exception: the Blue God)
The individual action tiles
“Expand” action (via land path or water path)
Expanding means settling a region adjacent to one in which you already have
a hut. You can expand via an adjacent land path (brown arrow) or water path
(blue arrow). The number showing on your die indicates the highest-value land
or water path along which you can expand (lower numbers are always allowed).
You are not allowed to expand diagonally.
For example, you could use a 5 or 6 to expand via water path from the central
island’s mountain region to the south island’s plains. You could also use a 4, 5 or
6 to expand to the east island’s beach.
Via a land path, you could use a 4, 5 or 6 to expand to the plains to the north, or
a 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 to expand to the beach to the west. You could not expand to the
forest regions of either island, as these are only diagonally adjacent to your region!
To expand, take a new hut from your player board (you may choose any hut,
but it is better to save the 12th space until the end of the game) and place it on
the building space of the new region. You now have a free space on your player
board that you can later fill with a man or woman tile (see below).
Additionally, from the new region you may take either the building material
(adding it to your ceremony space) or the offering tile (placing it next to your
player board).
“Expand” action
(via land or water)
Finally, you must decide now and only now whether or not you want to score
victory points for the fish tile adjacent to the new region. More details on this
can be found on page 10 under “Red God”. Fish tiles can only be scored once per
player per region, and only during expansion.
Only now can you score VPs for
the corresponding fish tile (using a
Red God card)
If there is already a hut on your new region’s building space, move it off to the
side, but make sure it stays in the same region.
Note: fish tiles can only be scored
once per player per region
Important! Each player can have no more than one hut per region!
Maximum 1 hut per player per
region
H 44 h
Take a hut from your player board
and place it onto a region adjacent
to one with one of your own huts;
note, expand only along a path
with a number less than or equal
to your die roll
Place the hut onto the building
space of the new region (move a
pre-existing hut off to the side)
Take the corresponding building
material or offering tile
“Woman” action
Each woman tile on the game board is placed upon one of six numbered positions. Take one woman tile from any position that is less than or equal to the
value of the die that you had placed upon the woman action tile.
So if, for example, you had placed a 4-die on the woman action tile, you can take one
woman tile from the board in any of the places numbered 1-4, but not in places 5 or 6.
Place the tile onto a free space on your player board (i.e. one of the 12 spaces
along the right hand side of your player board not currently
covered with a hut or a tile), such that the tile covers the green
checkmark at the top of the space but leaves the status / shell
at the bottom of the space visible. If you don’t have a free space,
then you cannot choose this action.
Note: Placing the new tile doesn’t do anything further – that is, you can’t carry out
the action shown on the right or left hand side of the tile yet!
“Woman” action:
Take a woman tile
(less than or equal
to your die) and
place it on your
player board
Do not perform the tile’s effect at
this point
“Man” action
Carry this action out in the same manner as the woman tile (see above).
“Man” action:
See “Woman” action above
“Helper” action
Trade for various items. The die result indicates how many items you can trade
for. The trade value is shown in the upper left hand corner of each player board.
Tattooing, shell collecting, or scoring 1 victory point each costs 1 die point. An
offering, God card, or building material of your choice each costs 2 die points,
as does moving a hut onto your 12th space.
“Helper” action:
Different items can
be traded for, depending on the die
result
The individual “Helper” trading options:
Tattooing (man tiles): For each die point used, shift one not yet tattooed man on
your player board down, i.e. so that the green checkmark on that space becomes
visible while the status / shell area is covered. The man is now tattooed and may
not be tattooed again for the rest of the game. Move your status marker one
space to the right along the status track for each status symbol ( ) displayed
on the left side of the man tile. If you land on an occupied space on the status
track, place your marker on top of the pile. You may spend additional die points
to tattoo additional men but are not obligated to do so.
Collecting Shells (woman tiles): Carry this out in the same manner as tattooing:
For each die point used, shift one woman tile down and take the number of
shells from the general supply that corresponds to the number of shells displayed
on the left side of the woman tile. Place the shells next to your player board so
that all players can see them.
Tattooing:
Shift one man tile down per die
point and then score the corresponding number of points on the
status track
Collecting shells:
Shift one woman tile down per
die point and then take the
corresponding number of shells
from the supply
Example: Anna uses two of the five die points she has available for the tattooing
“Helper” action, and shifts two of her man tiles down. A total of 5 status symbols are
on those two man tiles, so she moves her status marker from 0 to the first space below
the 4 on the status track.
She uses an additional die point to shift one of her woman tiles down in exchange for
3 shells from the general supply. She plans on using the final two points for an offering
(see below).
Victory points: Move one space forward along the victory point track for each
die point you are trading in for victory points.
Victory points:
1 VP per die point
Offerings: Take one offering from the supply for every two die points you are
trading in for offerings. Place the offerings next to your player board so that all
players can see them.
Offerings:
1 offering per 2 die points
H 55h
God cards: Take one God card and add it to your hand for every two die
points you are trading in. You can take either the top card of the draw pile or
one of the five face up cards. If you take one of the face up cards, immediately
replace it with the top card from the draw pile.
You can use God cards during the course of the game to making offerings.
More information on page 10: The Gods.
God cards:
Take 1 God card per 2 die points
Building materials: Take one building material of your choice from the
supply and place it on a matching ceremony space for every two die points
you are trading in. Should you not have an open matching space, then place it next
to your player board instead.
Should the supply run out of the necessary building material, use something else as
a temporary replacement. The supply of building materials, offerings, and shells is
unlimited.
Building materials:
Take 1 building material (and add
it to a matching ceremony space)
per 2 die points
Move hut: Move one of the huts on your player board to the last, 12th, space
(bottom right, with a slightly lighter border) of your player board for every
two die points you are trading in. You can have as many huts as you want on
the 12th space.
Each movement allows you to make space for additional man and woman
tiles without having to use the “Expand” action first. Note: you cannot move
huts that have already been placed onto the game board.
Example of different “Helper” actions:
Ben has placed a 6-value die onto the “Helper” action tile. He takes one wood
(-2), tattoos one man (-1) and collects some shells with a woman (-1). He moves his
scoring marker ahead 2 spaces along the victory point track for his final two die
points.
Or: Ben could have also chosen to draw 1 God card (-2), 1 offering (-2) and 1
building material of his choice (-2).
Or: Ben could have shifted 6 man / woman tiles down.
Or: ... taken 2 God cards and 2 victory points… etc., etc.
Move hut:
Move 1 hut to space 12 per 2 die
points
“Temple” action
Take a priest from your supply and add him to the temple on the game
board. The die result indicates the highest-value space you can place your
priest onto (lower values are always allowed). Should a priest already be located on this space, shift him one space in the direction of the arrows. This can
in turn shift additional priests, until either an empty space is filled or the last
priest in the row drops off the end and is returned to the supply of his owner.
“Temple” action:
Place a new priest
onto the corresponding temple space
(possibly shifting
existing priests to the
right); immediately take Fire Bonus
Each newly-placed priest immediately awards a one-time Fire Bonus (see
next page). Additionally, all priests in the temple are worth victory points
at the end of a round. More details under “Phase C”.
Priests are also worth victory
points at the end of a round
Don´t forget
“Build” action
Build one of your as-yet unbuilt building tiles. The die result indicates the
highest-value tile you can build (lower values are always allowed). Remove
building materials from two horizontally or vertically adjacent ceremony
spaces on your player board, returning them to the general supply. Then place
the chosen building tile (die side down) onto the two spaces. Depending on the current round, you score either 10, 7 or 4 points for
this. The points are shown above the jewelry tile spaces on the game
board. You also receive the one-time Fire Bonus (see next page).
Don´t forget
H 66h
“Build” action:
Remove any two
adjacent building
materials;
place corresponding
building tile in their
place
Immediately score victory points
and take Fire Bonus
If you don’t have two adjacent building materials in your ceremony space,
then you cannot choose this action. Building materials or building tiles, once
placed onto a ceremony space, cannot be moved again.
Should you build so that you have individual spaces left at the end of the game, then you
will not be able to fully complete the ceremony spaces (see also page 9: Final Scoring).
The Fire Bonus
When you receive this bonus (either by adding a priest to the temple or
by placing building tiles on ceremony spaces), you immediately choose
either a God card or an offering and either move ahead one space on
the status track or take one shell. For details, see “Helper” action.
Fire Bonus:
Either 1 God card or 1 offering
and either 1 status or 1 shell
Example: Cleo places a priest. For her Fire Bonus, she immediately takes a God
card (instead of an offering) and a shell (instead of a status step). She is not allowed
to take two offerings, nor is she allowed to take an offering and a God card.
“Fishing” action
Score 2 victory points for any die (regardless of its number) placed in the
“fishing” action space in the upper left hand corner of the game board.
Important! When using the “fishing” action, the rule that new dice must be of
lower value than those already placed is not in effect. In other words, you can
place any die here and score 2 victory points.
Phase B: Use man and woman actions
In turn order, players may use one of their man and one of their woman tiles;
the order of usage is up to each player individually.
The available actions depend on the symbols indicated on the right hand sides
of the tiles. If you have multiple identical women, then you can use these tiles
together for a more powerful single action (but you may not use them to carry
out multiple separate actions). The same goes for the men – but never for men
and women together!
The individual locations of your man and woman tiles on your player board
doesn’t matter, nor does whether or not they have been shifted down. Using
them doesn’t change them; they are neither shifted nor discarded.
Example: Don adds the values of his two male Pathfinders (one is tattooed, one is
not) together to use them to expand across one land path of value 4 or less; he could
not use them to expand across two paths of value 2 or less. Should he also have a
female Pathfinder, he could then use her to expand again – independently from the
men – but is not obligated to do so.
“Fishing” action:
Score 2 victory
points for placing
any die on this
space
PHASE B
In turn order, each player may
use one of his man and one of his
woman tiles, in either order
If you have multiple identical men
(or women), you can combine them
to carry out a single, more powerful action (however, you can never
combine men and women)
The individual woman (and man) actions
(See also the corresponding summary on each player board)
Land Path: Expand just as if you had placed a die of value 2 onto the
“land path” action tile.
(If you have two such women (or men), then you can use a land path of value 4 or less; if
you have all three such women (or men), then you can use any land path.)
Water Path: Expand in the same way as described above, only via a water path.
Woman: Take a woman tile from the game board as if you had placed a die
of value 3 onto the “woman” action tile. (Or, if you have two such women
(or men), as if you had placed a die of value 6. Note: the third matching woman
(or man) tile has no effect!)
Man: Take a man tile in the same way as described above.
Build: Build one of your building tiles as if you had placed a die of value 3
on the “build” action tile.
(Or, if you have two such women (or men), as if you had placed a die of value 6.
Note: the third tile has no effect!)
H 77h
Use one land path of max.
value 2 (4/6)

Building materials: Take one building material of your choice from the
supply and place it onto a matching ceremony space on your player board.
(Or take 2 or even 3 building materials. Note: they can be different types.)
Move hut: Move one of your huts onto the 12th space of your player
board. (Or move 2 or even 3 of your huts.)
Victory points: Move your scoring marker two spaces forward on the
scoring track. (Or 4 or even 6 spaces forward.)
God card: Take a God card into your hand.
(Or take 2 or even 3 God cards.)
Take 1 (2/3) building
materials of your choice
Move 1 (2/3) huts onto
the 12th space

Offering: Take an offering from the supply.
(Or take 2 or even 3 offerings.)
Take 1 (2/3) offerings
Status: Move your status marker one step forward on the status track.
(Or move forward 2 or even 3 spaces.)
Move forward 1 (2/3)
status steps
Shell: Take a shell from the supply.
(Or take 2 or even 3 shells.)
Take 1 (2/3) shells
Phase C: Assess the right half of the game board
PHASE C
Always deal with the status track first, followed by the temple, then the
jewelry tiles, and finally the task tiles.
1.) Status track
1.) Status track
Each player scores the number of victory points that corresponds to the space
his status marker is below, in other words, between 0 and 15 points. Then,
return all players’ status markers to the 0 space, making sure that the player
who was the furthest back is on the bottom and the player who was the
furthest ahead is on top. Finally, reassign the turn order tiles: the player on
top of the pile is the start player and gets the “#1” tile, etc.
Each player scores the number
of victory points corresponding
to the location of their status
marker (0-15)
Return all markers back to status
space below 0 (as a pile); reassign
turn order tiles accordingly
2.) Temple
Players score victory points for the priests they have in the temple. In the first
two rounds each priest is worth 1 victory point; in the next two rounds each
priest is worth 2 victory points and in the final two rounds each priest is
worth 3 victory points (as also indicated along the bottom of the temple).
Then, the player with the most priests in the temple receives the top God
tile, adding it to his player board. In the case of a tie, the God tile goes to the
player among those who tied whose priest is furthest to the left.
Should there not be any priest in the temple, then the corresponding God tile is
removed from the game.
3.) Jewelry tiles
In the new turn order, players may choose to buy one jewelry tile from the
current round’s column, paying for it by returning as many shells to the
supply as indicated on the chosen tile. Place jewelry tiles face down on the
appropriate spot on your player board; you will score the victory points for
them at the end of the game. See next page: “Final Scoring”.
If you can’t or don’t want to buy a jewelry tile, then your turn is skipped.
Any leftover jewelry tiles from the current round are discarded.
The six columns illustrate what round the game is currently in, and how many
victory points building tiles or priests are worth.
H 88h
2.) Temple
Each priest is worth:
● 1 victory point (round 1 & 2)
● 2 victory points (round 3 & 4)
● 3 victory points (round 5 & 6)
Give the top God tile to the player
with the most priests in the temple
3.) Jewelry tiles
Each player may buy 1 jewelry tile
from the current round’s column
Victory points are awarded for
jewelry tiles at the end of the game
4.) Task tiles
4.) Task tiles
In the new turn order, players one at a time complete one of their three task
tiles. If the player can complete the task without help, he scores 6 VPs. If
the player requires the help of the Yellow God to complete it (see page 11),
he scores 4 victory points. After the task is completed, the player places the
tile face down on the space with the checkmark on his player board, where it
remains until the end of the game.
Each player must complete one
task tile per round:
● 6 VP (when completed)
● 4 VP (when completed with
the Yellow God’s help)
● 0 VP (when not completed)
If the player can’t complete any of his three tasks, he must choose one task tile
to surrender, and return it to the game box. No points are scored.
Finally, in turn order, each player chooses a new task tile from the game board
and adds it to the newly freed space on his player board (note: this is also
required during round 6).
In player order, each player then
takes a new task tile (this also
happens at the end of round 6)
The round is now over. Prepare for the next round by returning to the game
box the two task tiles that were not chosen, and any remaining man or
woman tiles. Then, add six new man and six new woman tiles to the board,
along with new task tiles (player count plus 2). Do this at the beginning of
round 6 as well.
New round:
● add 6 new man and 6 new
woman tiles
● add 4-6 new task tiles
● return the 3 dice to each
player
Each player takes their three dice back from the action tiles. The next round
can now begin ...
Game End
GAME END
The game ends after round 6. Each player now completes his three task tiles
(each one is completed as at the end of the individual rounds).
At game end, complete the
remaining three task tiles
(6, 4 or 0 VP each)
Final scoring: (see also the summary in the bottom left corner of the player
boards); players receive:
● 2 victory points for every own unused God tile;
● 1-6 victory points for each fish tile adjacent to a building space containing
a hut of their color;
● 1-9 victory points for each of their jewelry tiles.
Additionally, each player scores 6 victory points for each of the following:
Final scoring:
● per God tile:
2 VPs
● per fish tile:
1-6 VPs
● per jewelry tile: 1-9 VPs
Additional 6 VPs for each:
● 9 completed task tiles;
● 9 task tiles completed
● 6 claimed jewelry tiles;
● 6 jewelry tiles claimed
● all 12 ceremony spaces full
(regardless of whether it is full
with building materials and/or building tiles);
● Ceremony spaces full
● all 6 building tiles built;
● all building tiles built
● huts added to all 12 regions;
● huts on all 12 regions
● all 12 man / woman spaces filled with man or woman tiles.
● 12 man / woman tiles
Remaining building materials, shells, offerings or God cards are not worth anything.
The player with the most victory points is the winner. In the event of a tie,
the winner is the player among those who tied who went earlier in turn order
during the last phase C.
H 99h
The player with the most victory
points is the winner
The Gods “)
THE GODS
To play any God card, you must also give up an offering. If you don’t have
an offering then you can’t play a God card. Place used God cards face up onto
a discard pile next to the draw pile and used offerings back into the general
supply. If the God card draw pile runs out, shuffle the discard pile and use it,
face down, as a new draw pile.
Important! You may play two God cards of the same color,
paying only one offering, for the ability to choose any God
action you desire.
Can be used in different phases;
each God card “costs” one
offering
You can play two identical God
cards to use any God action of
your choice
Blue God - If you play a Blue God (only possible in Phase A), then you can add
a die to an action tile even if its value is the same as or greater than the lowest
die value on that tile.
Note: You must use one Blue God card per die. Thus, if anyone wants to play an
equal or greater value die later in the round, they must also play a Blue God card.
White or Red Gods may also be played.
Die placed on an action
tile can be of equal /
greater value than the
lowest die on that action
tile
White God - If you play a White God (only possible in Phase A), then you can
add a die to an action tile as if its value was 6. Do not change the die’s value to
6, it remains as it was!
Die placed on action tile
is considered to be of
value 6, but not changed
to value 6
Red God - You may only play a Red God (in Phases A or B) when expanding,
i.e. when placing a hut onto a new region’s building space. The Red God allows
you to score the fish tile adjacent to the new region, i.e. to score as many victory
points as indicated by the fish tile.
Important: The fish tile remains in place after scoring so that it is available to
the other players.
Note: Players can play no more than one Red God per region, and thus can score
each fish tile at most once.
Example: Anna plays a Blue God (and makes an offering) to be able to place a
3-die on the “water path” action tile, which already shows a die with a 1. Additionally she plays a White God (and makes another offering) to be able to use the 3
as a 6, i.e. allowing her to expand over a water path with a value of 6, and places
a new hut in the new region. Finally she plays a Red God (and makes a third
offering) to score 5 victory points for the fish tile adjacent to the new hut.
Green God - If you play a Green God (only possible in Phase B), then you can do
one of the following:
Either:
Double the effect of the man or woman type you are currently using. If you
are using multiple identical man (or woman) tiles, double the total amount, i.e.
after taking into account the effect of multiple tiles.
(Note: multiple actions are still not possible).
Example 1: Cleo has two woman tiles that will score her 4 victory points when
activated together. By using the Green God, she can double this to 8 victory points.
Example 2: Ben is able to build at most a 3-value building tile. By using a Green
God, he can build a 4, 5 or 6 value building tile (but not a second 3-value
building tile).
Or:
Activate a second, different, man or woman type.
Example: Don uses his two woman tiles together to expand via a 4-value land
path. He then uses a man tile that allows him to take one God card. He picks a
Green God card that he immediately plays (after paying the requisite offering).
He decides to activate another of his women tiles, and chooses one that lets him
take one man tile from the game board.
H 1010h
Score the fish tile of the
expanded region
Either double a man /
woman action effect or
gain an additional man /
woman action
For clarity: You can play at most one
Green God in Phase B and use it to
either double the effect of one man/
woman action or use one additional
man/woman action.
Yellow God - If you play one Yellow God (only possible in Phase C), then you
can replace exactly one of a task tile’s requirements.
If, for example, the task tile requires 3 wood, then you can use a Yellow God to
need only 2 wood.
Or, if huts in 9 regions are required, then you can use a Yellow God to need
huts in only 8 regions.
Replaces one task tile
requirement
Using a Yellow God to help with a task tile means that you only score 4 victory
points for that tile (instead of 6).
Note: At the end of the game, when players complete their three remaining
task tiles, you may use one Yellow God per tile, thus allowing you use up to
three total cards. You must pay one offering for each.
God tile: God tiles can be used in place of any God card of your choice.
When used, return the God tile to the game box. You do not need to give up
an offering to use a God tile.
Using a Yellow God allows you to
score 4 VPs instead of 6 for that
tile
The two or three player game
2 AND 3 PLAYER GAME
Fewer action tiles are laid out, so that some actions are combined:
In the 2 player game - In addition to the “Build”, “Temple” and “Helper”
actions, there are combined “Man / Woman” and “Land / Water Path” actions.
Use the “Woman” and “Land Path” tiles face down, and return the “Man” and
“Water Path” tiles to the box. A total of five action tiles are thus available.
In the 3 player game - In addition to the “Build”, “Temple”, “Helper”,
“Woman” and “Man” actions, there is a combined “Land / Water Path” action
(use the “Land Path” face down), and return the “Water Path” tile to the box.
A total of six action tiles are thus available.
Use 5 or 6 action tiles only
The rules for placing dice remain the same as in the 4 players game. Always
place lower die values (exception: Blue God) and, when choosing a double
action tile, choose one of the two available actions.
All other rules remain the same
Example: Don places a 3-value die onto the combined “Man / Woman”
action tile and takes a woman tile. Subsequent players must now place either
a 2-value or 1-value die here, but are free to choose a man tile instead of a
woman tile. The same goes for the combined “Land / Water Path” action tile.

The task tiles
The following examples illustrate all of the task tiles, beginning with the 7 starting task tiles (light green backs with
a crane) and followed by the 53 remaining task tiles (dark green backs with a parrot). In general, all tasks indicate a
minimum requirement – not an exact number. Thus, you can always have more of what is required, but not less.
Note: You never need to give anything up when completing task tiles. You only need to show that you have them.
A task tile is considered “complete” when you ...
... have a man and a woman tile on your player
board.
... have any four man tiles on your player
board.
Similar: “Any four woman tiles”
or “Any four jewelry tiles” or “Any
four built building tiles”.
...have a woman tile on your player board and a
priest in the temple.
... have two “Necklace” jewelry tiles. (Total
of 6, 1 per jewelry type.)
Similar: “Two God tiles”, “Four offerings” or
“Five shells”.
Similar: “A man tile on your board and a priest
in the temple” or “Three priests in the temple”.
... have a woman tile and a jewelry tile on your
player board.
... have three stone building materials
on your ceremony spaces or next to your
player board. (Total of 3, 1 per building

order tile #1”.
material type.)
Similar: “Any five building materials”.
... have a hut in any three regions.
... have a hut in each of the three mountain
regions (do not need to be on the regions’
Similar: “Huts in any nine regions” or “At least
one hut on all five islands”.
building spaces). (Total of 8, 1 per region type
and 1 per fish tile type.)
... can show three identically-colored God cards.
Similar: “Two God cards of a specific color” (total of
5, 1 per color) or “Four different God cards”.
... have four huts on the 12th space of your
player board.
Important! God cards required by task tiles cannot be replaced by God
tiles or by using two identical God cards!
... have any three man tiles shifted down on
your player board.
Similar: “Any three woman tiles shifted
down” or “Any five person tiles shifted
down”
... have three different man tiles on your
player board.
... have two of the depicted person tiles
(women and/or men) on your player board.
Similar: “Three different woman tiles” or
“Three different jewelry tiles”.
