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.

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 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
