An award-winning card game that plays out over multiple lives. Climb your way up the Karmic Ladder and be the first to achieve Transcendence—but be careful, because bad karma can come back to haunt you in the next life! Karmaka is a competitive card game for 2–4 players, all of whom start out as lowly dung beetles in the karmic universe. However, if you play your hands right, you can score enough points to ascend the rungs of the Karmic Ladder and be the first to achieve Transcendence! With each life (hand of cards), you can stash cards for your future life to strategically draft your next opening hand. Each card can be played for a certain number of points, as well as an ability that either helps you, or harms an opponent. But if you choose to do harm, beware—the wronged party can take that card and stash it for the next life. What goes around comes around!
