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.

This is fun with even just two players, and the game is different enough each time to keep you coming back. Stupid waters rise cards. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Jamie A.
Possibly me and my wife's favorite co-op board game. Highly recommend for a quick 25 minute co-op experience where you will definitely both lose if you don't work together and form... Read morePublished 1 day ago by Shawn Michaud

There are really no good 2 person board games. If you are looking for one, this and Carcassonne are it.Published 2 days ago by MJK
They love island themed things so I got my gf's parents this as a christmas present. They said it was ok, they don't really play it. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Lilia Lewis
Great game. For the price, I would say it is worth the buy. It is difficult to recommend to everyone because it is not for lone wolf's or die hard strategy game enthusiasts. Read morePublished 3 days ago by reid
