Whale Hunting is an ability that can only be used on a tile with a whale, removes the whale from the tile, and gives the player 10 stars. The ability is unlocked by the Whaling technology.

For the ∑∫ỹriȱŋ tribe, Whale Hunting is replaced by the Enchant ability, which allows ∑∫ỹriȱŋ to enchant a whale into a powerful Navalon unit at a cost of five stars.


  • Originally, there was a cost associated with Whale Hunting. The cost was proportional to the number of cities a player had, and, eventually, the cost would exceed the 10-star reward. This cost was later removed.
  • Midjiwan, the game developer, condemns hunting actual whales.[1]
