"Awesome co-operative fun for the whole family"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is very enjoyable! Fast paced co-op where you have to work together to collect all treasures and leave the island before it sinks completely.

Nice entry level game that is fun for all kids and adults as well. The island tiles and different characters give it a decent re-play value.

Affordable game with excellent production values. Comes in a handy tin box. Every family should have this in their collection.

"Gets old fast"
3 stars"

Its not a bad game, and it can be fun to play after a long time of not playing it, but once you have played once, I think it is too easy to beat, even when the difficulty is set to highest. Nice artwork though.

"Great Family Game"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

An enjoyable game to play with the kids as it is a co-operative game in which you have to work together. Rules are easy to follow. I will buy Forbidden Desert next.

It’s a great honor to introduce the latest creation by cooperative game master, Matt Leacock. There are so many things we love about this unique game: from the rich illustrations, to the collaborative nature of play, to the innovative set of rules, to the infinite possibilities generated by the tiles and cards. Don’t be surprised if your pulse starts pounding faster soon after you start playing – it’s a game that instantly generates an electrifying atmosphere of tension and excitement!
