The mysterious island of Atlantis has been discovered in the middle of the ocean, and there are rumors of great riches to be found there! After reaching Atlantis, the explorers are ready to return home with treasure. But Atlantis begins to sink!

SHG2002 Escape From Atlantis Survive 30th Anniversary edition Board Game Stronghold
An underwater volcano has erupted and the island of Atlantis is sinking into the sea! Unless the people of Atlantis escape before the volcano explodes, all the inhabitants are doomed! In this game you try to lead your people from the sinking central island of Atlantis to the safety of one of four islands nearby. Your people can get there by boat (if they find one) or by swimming but avoid the Sea Serpents, Whales, and Sharks! The player with the most survivor points wins.
Survive is a cutthroat game where players seek to evacuate their pieces from an island that is breaking up, while remembering where their highest-valued pieces are located to maximize their score.
An island made up of 40 hex-tiles is slowly sinking into the ocean (as the tiles are removed from the board). Each player controls ten people (valued from 1 to 6) that they try and move towards the safety of the surrounding islands before the main island finally blows up. Players can either swim or use boats to travel but must avoid sea serpents, whales and sharks on their way to safety.
Survive is very similar to Escape from Atlantis with some key differences.

When the volcano on Atlantis explodes, the game is over. The player with the most survivor points wins.

In Survive, players are on an island, this island is slowing sinking, players have to either swim or paddle their boats to nearby islands to survive. Around the island though, are sharks, whales, and sea serpents, and they smell fear and blood. Players throw other players in the direction of the sea creatures. This is truly a game of "I don't have to be fast, just faster than you". Make alliances, break friendships, become a traitor, do everything necessary to get your meeples onto nearby islands for safety. Oh, also, it's not how many you save, it's the value underneath the meeples. Each meeple has a hidden value (1-6) so during the game, no one really knows who is truly in the lead. Can't king anyone in this game. The downtime during play is minimal, the turns are quick and the game is always loud with all the chaos and the threats of being attacks, everyone is pleading their case to attack the other.
I highly recommend the dolphin expansion, 5-6 player expansion, and Giant Squid expansion.

The gameplay is similar to forbidden island, in that it is easy to understand, easy to teach, and feels like you are trying to escape an island. The major difference, is that in Survive, you are trying to get all of your meeples to safety, while trying to stop the other players from doing so, before the volcano blows, all the while, people are pulling tiles, and making the island sink (not to mention, each tile has a picture on the bottom of it, that will either immediately spawn a boat/creature, or can be used later). Players can mess with each other by moving the monsters/creatures on the board to create havoc with other players meeples, stealing/joining their boats, and playing tiles that allow you to turn the game in your favor. Finally, you roll the monster die, and get to move a creature to try to mess with another player.
I have played about 5 times, and it has not gotten less tense. There is just enough "take that", and strategy, to keep it interesting every time, and it still feels like I am in control enough to have a chance to win. Overall, it is a good game that has timeless appeal just the way it is.
