Gear up for a thrilling adventure to recover a legendary flying machine buried deep in the ruins of an ancient desert city. You'll need to coordinate with your teammates and use every available resource if you hope to survive the scorching heat and relentless sandstorm. Find the flying machine and escape before you all become permanent artifacts of the Forbidden Desert!
When we launched Forbidden Island, we had an inkling that we had created a hit game but never to the point that we’d be prompted to make a sequel. Well, here we are a few years later with just that in hand. Our challenge to designer Matt Leacock was to create a game that would contain familiar elements (cooperative play, modular board), while offering up a completely different in-game experience. In addition, we wanted it to be simultaneously approachable to new players while upping the ante for those who felt they had mastered Forbidden Island. All this resulted in a fresh new game with an innovative set of mechanics, such as an ever-shifting board, individual resource management, and unique method for locating the flying machine parts. Hopefully we’ve achieved our goals and quenched your thirst for adventure!

Forbidden Desert is one of those games that is a great introduction to modern board gaming ; it is a gateway game into the hobby.
In Forbidden Desert you'll take on the roles of adventurers, each with an individual skill, who must survive the sand storm to recover a legendary flying machine buried under an ancient desert city. With the ever-shifting board and plenty of variety in special abilities there is plenty of game to enjoy and explore here.
Forbidden Desert is packed full of fun, has wonderful components and is a great challenge. The rule book is well laid out and easy to read. It's advantage is that it is a co-operative game therefore anyone can get involved and enjoy it without feeling out of there depth. As you will all win or loose together there is a great sense of achievement and camaraderie. Sure, it is possible to have a dominant alpha voice in your group but as everyone has an individual player ability you'll all be able to contribute to the success of your team. By increasing the difficulty this game can be a challenge for new gamers and old gamers alike.
If you enjoy this I'd strongly consider Pandemic Board Game, a slightly more challenging co-operative game from the same designer. For another family game of this weight try Gamewright Forbidden Island Game
If this review has been helpful please give me a thumbs up.
My wife and I took to the game very well and have been able to quickly teach the gameplay to others including young nephews. It's especially enjoyable with them as everyone is working together against the game. The joy on everyone's faces as you escape the desert is priceless. So much fun we bought the iPad version for travelling also.
Recommended for anyone who fancies co-operative gameplay.
