You're stranded. The helicopter is in shambles. Rumor has it that a legendary flying machine is scattered across the desert: you've got a slim chance of survival.

Work together with your teammates to escape the scorching heat, endless sand and constant thirst for water. If one player dies, the game is over. Can you survive the Forbidden Desert?

Each player receives an identity which grants them special actions. Without your entire team, you cannot survive.

24 tiles are arranged in a 5 x 5 grid. The center space is void of a tile, this being the Storm. Sand markers are placed in a diamond around the Storm. All players gather on the wreckage site to begin. With the sun beating down each player is allowed four actions. Move to an adjacent tile (cannot move diagonally), Remove Sand, Excavate and Pick Up a Part.

According to the level of difficulty, set the Storm gauge. At the end of each turn, the player must draw the gauged amount of Storm cards. Storm cards move the Storm Hole around the board, cover more tiles with sand, increase the gauge, or could possibly devoid players of water.

Once sand is excavated from the tiles the tile is flipped over. Clues to missing parts, extra water, sun shields, and tunnels are revealed. Band together and beat the heat. Collect the flying machine parts and rally everyone to the launch site.

Hot sun, flying sand, a mirage of water... Can you discover the hidden parts in time, or will the Storm shroud you and your teammates in defeat?

Embark on a relentless journey of intrigue and teamwork.
