Gaïa is a 2-5 player game where you create a world, fill it with life, build cities, try to satisfy their needs, and use godly powers to shape the world to your benefit.
In game terms, Gaïa includes tile placement, area control and influence with a twist of power cards. Each player has five wooden figures, and if you are the first to have all five of your figures on the board, you win!
Gaïa has two levels of rules, with the basic rules allowing for play with those as young as 8 thanks to the game's simple mechanisms and non-attacking nature. The advanced rules gives the opportunity to use godly powers — lightning, volcanoes, rain, sun, earthquakes, etc. — to shape the world after it has been created. You can also steal an opponent's cities, making it a more aggressive game with higher levels of strategy.
