CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
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.

Our teenagers enjoy this game very much, which is a plus because the three of them don't always enjoy the same types of games. Read morePublished 8 days ago by J. Rice
This game may be fun once you get it, but the time it takes to figure out is painful (the 10 year olds all got bored and walked away). Read morePublished 8 days ago by Tacosintx
love this game, cooperative- you compete against the sinking island. Each player gets a specific power they can use to help the team out. We play it about once a week.Published 11 days ago by John

This game has been a lot of fun to play with people new to board games. It's a bit light on challenge sometimes, depending on how the cards fall. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Josh
A game where the island sinks around you and you have to gather the relics before it, and you sink. My boys, ages 10 and 12, asked me to get this, and we have a great time with... Read morePublished 18 days ago by Amazon Customer
