The ancient tradition says that when comes the time of the Grand Challenge, all the local tribes send their bravest warriors on the volcanic island of Carcata.

On the island, they will fight for th honnor of their tribe by gathering the gems shot out of the awaken volcano. Many dangers await those brave adventurers !

In those forgotten times, the island was called Carcata. One day, it would become Krakatoa !

How did I create the game?

KRAKATOA was created in the 1990s . The idea was to « simulate » a volcanic burst as precisely as possible, in a family boardgame. Using a catapult was the most obvious choice to thrust objects out of the volcano.
The idea was to represent a volcanic eruption in the most faithful way, in a family board game.
So, what could be more natural, than using a catapult volcano that spits its slag on an island paradise.

The game quickly established itself as a hit with my daughters and my wife.
Some German publishers found the theme too violent, others thought there was too much material, etc.

It was only in 2018 that GOLIATH FRANCE started to have an interest in the game (Thank you ALAIN!).
In 2018, Goliath France showed a strong interest for the game (thank you, Alain !). The name Carcata was chosen to replace Krakatoa.
