Product Description

Product Description

You've survived the crash of Oceanic Flight 815 but can you survive the island? This strategy board game is based on the popular television show and puts you on the island in the role of your favorite character. Players must work together in order to survive, but to win a player must take control and become the leader of the Oceanic Flight 815 survivors. You do this by eliminating other players and taking leadership of their characters. The board is different every time because the first task is to lay down the location tiles face down to build your island. Characters move around the board and turn a tile face up when they land on it. The player then follows the instructions on the tile, which often lead to drawing a card, either an event card, equipment card or encounter card. Do you have what it takes to become the leader? Game includes 17 character cards, 75 hexagonal tiles to make up the playing board, 160 Fate cards, dice, an exclusive Lost coin, player tokens and basic and advanced rules. Ages 13 and up.

Okay, let's just get this out of the way first. This game lost a star because the directions are horribly written. If they would come out with a completely revised edition of the rules (and throw in a few more plastic boxes for the character pieces), it would be perfect. In the mean time, you can consult the official website for expanded instructions as well as downloadable templates to keep your characters and progress organized. That website has been an invaluable resource.

That being said, the hubby and I cannot get enough of this game!! Yes, it can be frustrating to learn, but once you get the hang of everything, you can play this game over and over and over and never have the same game twice. Also, different characters win in different ways, so your end goal can change from game to game! Sometimes the game lasts 15 minutes, sometimes 3 hours. You can control the length of the game by adjusting the board size to your taste.

This is not really a "family game night" or a quick, easy game of Sorry! or Uno. It's a pretty complex game with a lot of nuances, but WELL worth the effort!!!

Lost: The Board Game is a ton of fun, but be warned -- this game is definitely harder than your typical TV show board game. It's more of a role-playing game than a typical board game, so you'd better be ready to use your mind and imagination.

If you've played Magic The Gathering, or Settlers of Cataan, you'll have no problems with this game. If Monopoly or Risk are challenges to you, or you're looking for an easy game night, you're going to have a tough time with this one.

The good news is, once you've got the rules down, it's a ton of fun to play -- the more people, the better, by the way. The game really captures the spirit of the show, and you'll definitely feel like you were lost on an island after playing this one.

I picked up this game because I love the Lost show. To make this review short, once you figure out the instructions the game is extremely entertaining. I don't know how some people couldn't figure it out. The game does NOT take 30 minutes to set up. The official website has expanding instructions that really make the game much easier to understand. Keep in mind, this is no light and thoughtless board game like Life or Clue.

Simply put, if you are looking for a simple trivia game that can be picked up and played on a whim, this is not the right game. This is a rich, complex, and mult-faceted strategy game for serious gamers. Unlike the so-called "games" based on shows like "Desperate Housewives" and "Sex and the City," this game could actually stand completely on it's own even without the show tie-in. One reviewer claimed that it was clearly a cheap attempt at selling "anything with Lost stamped on it," and bemoaned the fact that it wasn't a trivia game. That doesn't make any sense to me. This game has obviously had serious thought put into it, and it's something that takes time to learn and perfect, much UNLIKE a trivia game. Admittedly, the instructions are awful and seem incomplete, and if it weren't for the great resource that is [...] where they have a newly written and much more comprehensible rule book (including a very helpful walkthrough), I would have given the game an overall score of 3 or 4. But taking the companion site into consideration, I think this game is excellent. Bottom line: You're more likely to enjoy this game if you're a fan of Risk, Magic: The Gathering, or even chess, than if you're even the most avid fan of the TV show.

Lost: The Game combines elements of Magic: the Gathering and chess. The box advises that it is for ages 13 and up.

When I first read the short rulebook, I could tell that the game was going to be a lot of fun.

Each player starts the game controlling a character from Lost, and additional characters are brought into the game as it progresses. The point of the game is to make your starting character become the leader of ALL of the other characters in play. The dramatic power play between the characters on Lost has been translated into fun and strategic game play.

While trying to become the leader of the survivers, your character has to explore the island and deal with local dilemmas that are found on Lost. At the beginning of the game, players build the island by placing an arrangement of tiles face down. When a location is first explored by characters, the tile is flipped over to reveal the location's text, i.e., the nature of the location. Like the characters on the show, you don't know what your characters are getting into until they are actually there.

More chance comes into the game via the huge Fate Deck. Most locations allow you to draw from a deck of Fate cards in which you'll find (1) an Encounter (like the monster, Others, or Rousseau), (2) Equipment (like a gun or a compass), or (3) an Event to be held in your hand for later use.

Because much of the game involves exploring the island, surviving scary dilemmas, and competing with your opponent's efforts to win your characters over to his/her side, the game captures the mystery and frenetic urgency of Lost.

The game is based on the first two seasons of Lost, but I've read that expansions based on subsequent seasons are being planned.
