Board Games 19: Maori

This is the first of Andrew's birthday board games. Maori has a simple concept of building islands. Various items on the islands give scoring points ie palm trees are worth 1 point each except if there is a hut on the island which doubles the value of the trees. A boat sailing around a square of tiles is the means for obtaining new tiles.

We have had a fun time playing this game. Lucy played once and beat us both (with lots of help) She didn't understand some of the rules but we helped her by showing her the best pieces and then she ended up with a really high score.

And by the way our game shelf is getting a little crowded!
