Let the whisper of your thoughts come to your ears…
Harmonize your chakras and let go so that the negative energies will disappear.
Meditate on your strategy and let your feelings guide you towards victory!
Cause, eh, it's a boardgame. Someone has to win.
Today we're giving you Chakra, a game by Luka Krleža wonderfully illustrated by Claire Conan and published by BLAM!
In Chakra, each player has a board that shows the seven chakras they must fill with gems that represent the energy flowing in their body. To score points, a player must harmonize each of their chakras in the best possible way. To do so, they must take the gems and place three of them of the corresponding color in each of the chakras. During a turn, each player (who starts the game with several inspiration tokens) chooses one of the three following actions:
Take up to three gems from one column and place them on top of their individual board — or by spending a token, place them in a more strategic position.
Spend one token to use one of eight available actions; moving gems up or down by the number of chakra spaces indicated on the action is the key to reaching a perfect alignment.
Meditate to reclaim an inspiration token and secretly look at the point value, which is common to all players, that a harmonized chakra (3 same-colored gems) will score.
When a player manages to align five of their chakras, the last turn is played before you perform the final scoring.
It's a light game with a lot of charms and strategies.

We would like to thank the designer, Luka Krleža, and the publisher BLAM for their help bringing this game to BGA.
Of course, like usual, nothing would have been possible without our fantastic developper, Mistergos, who is signing here it's 3rd game released on Board Game Arena. Congratulations to him!
You can enjoy the game right now, and if you don't know about it, you should give it a go.
You could find in it some ways to relax.
It's not that the points aren't important.
But you can just be proud to be part of the game.
And that's the beauty.
The first and the best victory is to conquer self.
