Forbidden Island Board Game

Forbidden Island

  • Players: 2 - 4
  • Play Time: 30 min. or more
  • Ages: 10 and over

Players take turns moving their pawns around the 'island', which is built by arranging the many beautifully screen-printed tiles before play begins. As the game progresses, more and more island tiles sink, becoming unavailable, and the pace increases. Players use strategies to keep the island from sinking, while trying to collect treasures and items. As the water level rises, it gets more difficult- sacrifices must be made.

  • This is a decent game, good for those that don't like "competitive" games since everyone plays against the board. It's an easier version of Pandemic with a different theme, but it was still fun.Devin3279December 30th, 2014 7 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
