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.

A terrific two player game. If you like Pandemic, you'll like this one. Set up is less involved, and it is a great week night game.Published 3 days ago by Pixie's Mom
Interesting game. Something different. Younger than 10 years can play this game. Also the game comes in a very sturdy box. It is metal.Published 3 days ago by O. D. Barfield

Very enjoyable cooperative game, hard enough to be satisfying but not too hard to be fun. I'm not a competitive person and don't enjoy trying to beat other people, so it's nice to... Read morePublished 4 days ago by J. K.
The instructions are confusing. This game is okay but maybe we didn't understand what we were doing.Published 8 days ago by J. Brewton

Very nice concept. Our family got tired of it fairly quickly, but maybe that's just because we are competitive!Published 9 days ago by JonC
