Product description

Product Description

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.

As a relative newcomer to board gaming I've watched a lot of videos by The Dice Tower. This game came highly recommended and I have to say I concur! I've only played with grown up friends so far but it has gone down really well. Indeed a few of them are going to buy their own copies.

I have kids aged 8 and I wanted a variety of games, including co-op. This fits the bill perfectly. My wife and I are very confident the kids will pick this up quite easily. To start them off we'll probably play in 2 teams but after they've got it we'll certainly play separately.

Our first game was fairly slow but it's easy to play after that. Although how anyone could win this in the hardest setting is beyond me! Novice level is a decent brain scratcher!

All in all an excellent co-op game that younger kids will be able to play fairly quickly, and participate in the strategy too. If you're after a game that will lead to things like Pandemic in future then buy it!

Really good fun. My wife and I loved playing this. Beat the board on the first two levels and lost on the third yet to play the fourth. A nice game to play together and we have played Forbidden Desert with friends and that was great with four. Looking forward to playing this one with four.

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

I was a but dubious about buying this game but I'm so glad I did. Its absolutley fantastic. such a simple idea but really well done. even my wife ( who doesn't like board games) played this twice and loved it. Just ordered Forbidden Desert too. This game is well worth the price.

Very fun and easy game to get into. Played as a group of 3 and 2. Very enjoyable each time. We are going to order forbidden desert since we liked this so much

If you've played Pandemic, you'll probably agree that the concept of Forbidden Island is almost identical. We enjoyed it because we enjoy Pandemic, but feel a little conned as were hoping for a new, challenging game to play!

My 9-year-old son loves this game, good to see him enjoying a game away from the computer screen! Simple enough for him to be able to explain to friends once we had played it with him, and enough variations possible to keep it different every time. Nice graphics on box/tiles (unfortunately box dented on arrival but just a detail). Perhaps not demanding enough for adults, older siblings/dad tend to drift away as he can almost play their turn for them, so we usually play two characters each... Overall pleased :)

We liked the idea of playing a cooperative game, particularly as this is ideal to play between 2 persons. We've also tried playing it with more than the recommended 4 players - gets much more difficult and you have to start from the lower levels but it's possible

This is a fun game but not a serious gamers' game. Its got challenge, excitement, lovely components but lacks the depth of some other co-op games. Still, a great choice for casual gaming and gaming newbies.
