The inhabitants of Bali regard their island as a world of gods and demons. The people sacrifice much of the harvest to appease these gods and the spirits of their ancestors. Farmers collect goods on the fields. When a shrine is built, these goods can be sacrificed. Priests help with these sacrifices and also chase away any demons.
The Bali game system is refined and novel: Take one card from the general display and reveal the card lying underneath — which could be disastrous for all! Only those who make the right decisions will please the gods best and score the most points.
Bali, a new edition of Rapa Nui, contains two new variants: "The Demon" and "The Oracle".
