Dare to discover Forbidden Island! Join a team of fearless adventurers on a do-or-die mission to capture four sacred treasures from the ruins of this perilous paradise. Your team will have to work together and make some pulse-pounding manoeuvres, as the island will sink beneath every step! Race to collect the treasures and make a triumphant escape before you are swallowed into the watery abyss!
Instead of winning by competing with each other your team of adventurers must work together to keep Forbidden Island from sinking, in order to buy enough time to capture its four treasures. Once you’ve captured them, you must make it to Fools’ Landing and escape by helicopter to win. If however, the island sinks before you can complete your tasks, the mission ends in defeat for all players.
For 2-4 players aged 10 plus and a playing time of around 30 minutes. This game is great for reinforcing problem solving, strategic thinking and cooperation skills.
Forbidden Island has won a multitude of awards including: Mensa Select, Best Family Game Winner – 2010 Dice Tower Awards, Boardgame Geek – Golden Geek Award, Games Magazine Top 100 Game, Parents’ Choice Recommended, FamilyFun Magazine Toy of the Year, FunFare All Star Award, Creative Child Magazine Game of the Year and 2011 Spiel des Jahres Finalist.

Really pretty game with nice pieces. Would reckomend to anyone new to gaming or if you have been playing games like this for years. Beats just playing the same old games again and again
It's simple to set up, the components are lovely and bright, the rules straight forward and it plays in around 30 minutes.
It's also co-operative which I always find best for new players as there's no chance of them being out of the game after the first few minutes.
However, it's not too simple as to make it unappealing for more seasoned players. Ramping up the difficulty and/or playing one of the alternative island layouts makes this an infuriatingly difficult game that really does require coordinated teamwork to succeed.
