The game design forces some interesting choices on the player. For instance, I had two men on a boat and my daughter also had one of hers on the same boat. However, she chose to sacrifice her one man to the sea monster in order to also destroy my two.
I'm not sure if hiding the point value of the men really adds an awful lot - nobody can ever seem to remember which ones are the most valuable anyway. I think actually having the values on display could lead to some interesting play opportunities.
Strategy: You must focus on getting your minions (each with a different value) off the island into the "safe Zones" on the edge of the board whilst working on how to ruin your opponent's plans. You can move your minions onto boats (a faster means of travel), move sharks or what's towards your oponent (destroying their boats and killing their meeples) and take away tiles from the island, plunging opponent's meeples into the water.
Luck: at the end of your go, you remove a tile off the board (you'll want to remove tiles that your oponent is on). This will either have an immediate effect or an effect that you can save for the beginning of your next turn. These effects can include bringing in a shark or whale (bad for your opponent's) , bringing in a boat (bad for you) or the ability to move a monster.
The game ends either when all the meeples are out of play, or when the volcano tile is revealed. You count up the points that you have kept secret that are under your minions. This means that the winner isn't always the person with the most minions.
Its a great game, I highly recommend it.
Boats float around the island for you to board and these can be co-opted by more than one player.
Fantastic fun as you screw over your opposition and do your best to keep your little people alive and hopefully save them from the ever sinking Island and all the perils lurking in the sea.
(Several expansions available too, 5/6 Player, Dolphins & Dive Dice and Giant Squid!)
