Press info:1000 years ago the Polynesian started to explore and settle the Pacific Ocean. KAIVAI -"Water Eater"- thus the man was called who was able to navigate a ship through the ocean without a compass. His secret knowledge was based on the very acute observation of natur - from the nigthsky to the shape of a crest of a wave - and was collected over centuries. The art of navigation, to read the ocean like a book, was reserved only to notably clans.

As Fishermen, navigators and tradors the Players look for new living space in the Polynesian island world. Who will lead his clan to reputation and fame and prove to be a dignifiedly KAIVAI?

Fishing, trading, building or celebrating, exerting influence, engulf other ships or remove the Fisher-god, mange zhe shell-money which looses on value and bid for a goos position in the playingorder - everything to the right time and you will come to glory and fame.
