During the game, the players embody five characters that live on the Hazagora volcanic island: the mayor, the fisherman, the lumberjack, the farmer and the tourist guide.They have to develop themselves on the island and sustain their community. But they also have to prepare themselves to face several hazards that can hit the island such as earthquakes, lava flows, tephra fall, and tsunamis. The players can therefore acquire during the game protections cards or define during council meetings specific communities strategies in order to become more resilient. During the game, players learn about the mechanism of the hazards, their impacts and protection measures that can be implemented.
