Bumúntú is a lightweight strategy game based on the culture and folklore
of the Bakongo tribes. Descendants of the Kingdom of Kongo, the Bakongo
people are the largest group of tribespeople in central Africa.
A common theme in African folklore is that animals are wise creatures
who teach humans to do good and moral things. As a tribal leader, you
will follow the guidance of the animals, journeying through the jungle
in hopes of winning their favor.
Players start on a board full of African animals, each with their own
movement abilities. Each player can either move as normal or follow the
wisdom of the animals, earning that animal's favor in the process and
collecting its chip. Some animals will make movement easier, while
others can affect how opponents move, giving a lot of depth to this
deceivingly simple strategy game. As the game progresses, fewer and
fewer animals remain, making choices that much more important.
Once all the Advancement chips have been collected, each animal will
offer a different amount of favor based on how far up they are on the
Favor Leaderboard, something that players can affect throughout the
game. Bonus points will be given for collecting Nkisi (small statues)
and Yowa (spiritual symbols). At the end of the game, the leader who has
accumulated the most favor wins!
