You and your team can be the first to breach the borders of the Archeans' ancient mystical empire in the collaborative card game Forbidden Island, by Gamewright. In this game, teamwork proves essential to locate the Earth Stone, the Statue of the Wind, the Crystal of Fire, and the Ocean's Chalice as the Island floods beneath your feet. Adventure... if you dare!
This game is centered on the legend of the Archean empire, a civilization that possessed the ability to control the Earth's core elements--fire, wind, water, and earth--through four sacred treasures. These treasures stayed hidden from enemies for years on the Forbidden Island, which was designed to sink if intruders ever attempted to capture them. Set the appropriate water level for your gaming skill, and let the adventures begin!
Your team of adventurers must work together to keep the Forbidden Island from sinking as you seek the four treasures hidden within. The mission is carried out using different combinations of Flood, Treasure, and Adventurer Cards on the 24 tiles that make up the Forbidden Island. Once you've captured each treasure using the appropriate cards, you must make it to Fools' Landing and escape by helicopter in order to win. If the island sinks before you complete your tasks, the mission ends in defeat.
Each player is dealt an Adventure Card and given a corresponding pawn before the game starts, designating him or her with a certain set of strengths. This game is designed so that instead of competing with other players, you work to find the treasures and find out how to best use each Adventurer's strengths through collaborative play. This stimulates problem-solving and strategy skills.
Water level marker, water meter, 58 playing cards, 24 island tiles, 6 pawns, 4 treasure figurines, rules of play, Gamewright catalog, and comment card.
So much fun it should be forbidden; well, maybe not 'that' much, but it is fun:-)Published 2 hours ago by Mcconville
A great co-operative game (not enough of them out there)! Also really nice that two or three people can play, don't have to get a whole party over.Published 11 hours ago by Molly Hogan
I bought this for $10.19 back in April. It's a great game for probably anyone in junior high or older. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Dan Chen
This game is great for family since the play is cooperative vs competitive. Who doesn't love a game where the kids don't fight with each other?! Easy to learn and quick to play. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Kate

I do not like this game. The instructions were very hard to understand. If you figured this game out and you enjoy then it is all good.Published 8 days ago by Eddie
Takes at least an hour to read the instructions with the kids and set up before beginning game. For 10 year olds this is too long.Published 8 days ago by Luigi
