Aloha: The Spirit of Hawaii is now live on KickStarter
ALOHA: The Spirit of Hawaii is the story of where you guide Hawaii from the Polynesian migrations all the way through its journey to US statehood.
ALOHA: The Spirit of Hawaii is the new board game from Blue Panther LLC.

You will guide your Hawaiians, emigrating and settling in the Prologue. In the three main chapters of the game, you will migrate from island to island, vying for control of the islands and their resources such as commerce, aloha and votes. You will be able to play event cards based on the history of the islands, and you will elect chiefs and kings and a even a queen. Between chapters you will score victory points and generate the actions necessary for success in the next chapter. In the Epilogue, all of your planning will come to fruition as you try to become elected governor.

ALOHA: The Spirit of Hawaii is a game of area control and resource management. The game takes 10-15 minutes to learn, and 60-90 minutes to play. It is recommended for ages 10 and higher. It plays well for 2,3 or 4 players due to the scaling of the scoring to keep all the games tight and fast paced. The theme is inviting and a great experience for hobby gamers and those just getting into euro-style games.

The game launched on Kickstarter on Sep 15th and ends Oct 21st. Please check it out at
