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 a frustrating and wonderful game. This may be the first time I've played a board game that adds real tension to the room! Read morePublished 14 hours ago by Philip Mickey
Extremely fun co-op game, providing a pretty high degree of difficulty if playing on the highest difficulty setting. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Justin
Fun to play with people that turn into jerks during competitive play, or gamers with severely disparate skill levels.
Con: No way to play competitively!
Very fun cooperative game. If you have never played a cooperative game, this is a good place to start as it is pretty simple in complexity. Read morePublished 7 days ago by James Hanenkamp
This is a great cooperative game for kids (and adults) who are really competitive. Everyone is on the edge of their seats when the water rises and parts of the island sink. Read morePublished 8 days ago by mj
My son and played this all the time when starting when he was around 8. We loved it for a long time but don't play it much anymore. It is still a great game though.Published 9 days ago by Matt N.
I bought this for my eleven year old son for Christmas and this game is a blast! It takes a little bit to figure out how to play it. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Mary French
