Dare to discover Forbidden Island! Join a team of fearless adventures on a do-or-die mission to capture four sacred treasures from the ruins of this perilous paradise. Your team will have to work together and make some pulse-pounding maneuvers, as the island will sink beneath every step! Race to collect the treasures and make a triumphant escape before you are swallowed into the watery abyss!
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 10 years of age.
Love the team play (allows me to play solitaire when the grandchildren are not available) and the randomness of the situation for constant surprises and infinite plots. The suspense and excitement are built just right and the island cards are beautifully presented. The rules are a little complicated, but that is really necessary to add the surprise moves; the instruction manual is well done to lead you through the trickier rules.
Forbidden Island deserves every award it has received. The artwork is beautiful and it plays like a dream. Play is quick and the mechanics are very simple, but it's not easy to win. And because the board itself, the players' special abilities, and both the treasure deck and the flood deck are randomly selected or arranged, every single game plays differently - every game is a completely new challenge! What I love the most is that even though players work cooperatively and win or lose together, it doesn't feel different from a typical competitive game with only one winner. And because the goal is shared, it is absolutely perfect for a solo player. Another great feature is that the rules provide for variability in difficulty and accommodating stellar players who want more. (And the price is a steal! but shh... don't tell the Gamewright folks!)
