Karna’s Karma

Stage: Prototype

In Karna’s Karma, players take control of cards symbolizing the various characteristics of Karna, the tragic hero from The Mahabharata.  Make your way from the beginning to the end of Karna’s journey, all the while gaining Punya or Papa cards for your deeds.  Look out for the power of Boons and Curses! Will you strive to be charitable or resolve to be malicious? This game’s strategy may be different from the last!

The Stories of Karna are imbued with the dichotomies Karna faced and the choices he acted upon. Often he operated in the gray areas and paid dearly for walking the path of ‘Papa’, against the principles of Dharma. Two of these stories have been animated by Vijay Anand, Abhinuv Allu and Aadya Bagul. Do enjoy these poignant renditions!
