Tonga was the second-place finisher in the 2004 Board/Card Games / Abstract Games Magazine Shared Pieces Game Design Competition.

It's played on a 9x9 board, and players compete to build islands in their own color. The game stops when there is no room for a new piece. At this moment, each player totals the squares of his three biggest isles. The winner is the one with the highest total.

Tonga was designed by members of Grupo de los Lunes, a sporadic group of players dedicated to play and to create abstract games. Tonga was designed and tested by Ariel Arbiser, Pablo Coll, Alejandro Donnantuoni, Marcos Donnantuoni, Rodolfo Kurchan, Oscar Lagioia, Pablo Milrud, Enrique Pavese, Gustavo PiƱeiro, Jaime Poniachik, Ivan Skvarca & Pablo Suarez.
