Forbidden Desert product reviews

Gear up for a thrilling adventure to recover a legendary flying machine buried deep in the ruins of an ancient desert city. You'll need to coordinate with your teammates and use every available resource if you hope to survive the scorching heat and relentless sandstorm. Find the flying machine and escape before you all become permanent artifacts of the forbidden desert!

In Forbidden Desert, a thematic sequel to Forbidden Island, players take on the roles of brave adventurers who must throw caution to the wind and survive both blistering heat and blustering sand in order to recover a legendary flying machine buried under an ancient desert city. While featuring cooperative gameplay similar to Forbidden Island, Forbidden Desert is a fresh, new game based around an innovative set of mechanisms such as an ever-shifting board, individual resource management, and a unique method for locating the flying machine parts.

Forbidden Desert is the follow-up to the popular Forbidden Island, it has the same basic principles as its predecessor except that this time the board shifts around you (and sometimes with you on it) and your tiles can be a lot harder to clear should you let the sand build up... Forbidden Island is definitely a step up from Forbidden Island and I have found that my kids don't enjoy it, as much, yet but that is something that could change as they begin to master the other. With this game, the tiles shift at the end of each turn, depending on what card/s are turned over, meaning that things could now be blocking the way or you could become trapped in the sand!

You need to find the pieces to your flying machine and reach the ruins before any one of you die or your meter hits the skull and crossbones, however you need to uncover two tiles with your missing item on it, then find where they converge and THAT is where your piece is, so you can end up doing a LOT of running around, which increases your chances of not winning. Most of the time we've lost due to not remembering to keep an eye on our water levels or who can help who. I really enjoy the concept behind this game and just how much there is going on, even if it doesn't seem like it at first glance. This was a good addition to our boardgame shelf.
