CARCATA is an explosive game that include a unique volcano-catapult !
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 !
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.
That prototype soon became a « must play » for me, my wife and my daughters. Some german publishers found the game too violent, for others, there were too many components...
In 2018, Goliath France showed a strong interest for the game (thank you, Alain !). The name Carcata was chosen to replace Krakatoa.
