On Taluva, that South Seas island shrouded in secrecy, raw elemental powers prevail. Powerful volcanoes erupt, pouring their lava into the sea, forming a terrace-like jungle landscape.

Four groups try to establish themselves on this island. They search the jungle, beaches, and lakes looking for the best places to build their huts, towers, and temples. They put their fate in the hands of their gods.

Each player makes decisions on how the island grows and where his group builds their huts, towers, and temples. At the end of the game, the temples are the most important for scoring.

It may be advantageous for a player to hasten the game end by building all of two kinds of buildings. But note: when a player runs out of buildings, he must relinquish his dreams and withdraw.

From Board Game Geek:

In Taluva, players place tiles consisting of volcanoes and other terrain. Tiles can be placed adjacent to other tiles or on top of other tiles. Thus, the island expands outward and upward during the course of the game. At the same time, the players are trying to settle their peoples on the island by building huts, temples and towers. Each building type has a different restriction regarding placement. The game ends when all the land tiles have been played or when a player builds all of his buildings in 2 of the 3 types.

Contents: 48 volcano tiles, 8 towers in 4 colors, 12 temples in 4 colors, 80 huts in 4 colors, rule booklet. Rules in English, French and German.
