A Tactical Game of Totem Domination
Welcome to Tiki Island, home to nine colorful carvings all competing to be the top Polynesian Idol! In this fast-paced strategy game, try to maneuver your secret tikis to the top of the line by playing the right combination of action cards. Use a Tiki Up card to move a tiki ahead in line. Tiki Topple sends opponents' tikis tumbling to the back of the pack. But watch out for the sneaky Tiki Toast cards, which knock your tikis off the board! Score the most points and call yourself the Tiki Master.
If one were to judge a game strictly by its looks, Tiki Topple would certainly come out on top in our book. From the unique set of colorful carved tiki pieces to the rich illustrations, this is one of the most beautiful games we've ever produced. Yet what really makes this game shine is that, along side the gorgeous graphics, stands a game design that is equal in richness and elegance. As with all of our favorite games, Tiki Topple is simple to learn while offering a challenge every time it's played.
