Chronicle Books will release Karmaka, a competitive card game designed by Hemisphere Games, into trade in May 2020.

In Karmaka, players begin the game as lowly dung beetles, and climb the Karmic Ladder by collecting and playing deeds in life. The Deed cards can be played to upgrade a player’s life or hinder a rival. As they move up the Karmic Ladder, players score points while setting up their next life, and the goal of the game is to be the first player to reach Transcendence.

This product is for two to four players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 35 to 60 minutes. The new edition will retail for $29.99.

Chronicle Books also released Autocomplete in September (see "'Autocomplete' Comes to the Tabletop").
