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! When Gamewright launched Forbidden Island in 2010, they had an inkling that they had created a hit game but never to the point that we'd be prompted to make a sequel. Well, here they are a few years later with just that in hand. Their challenge to designer Matt Leacock was to create a game that would contain familiar elements (cooperative play, modular board), while offering up a completely different in-game experience. In addition, they wanted it to be simultaneously approachable to new players while upping the ante for those who felt they had mastered Forbidden Island. All this resulted in a fresh new game with an innovative set of mechanics, such as an ever-shifting board, individual resource management, and unique method for locating the flying machine parts. Hopefully they've achieved our goals and quenched your thirst for adventure!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for beginners This is a fantastic cooperative game for beginners. If it is your first time trying a coop game or you are trying to get your friends into playing them this is a great one to start with! It is quite easy for those who have a handle on these types of games but it is still a lot of fun if you want a quick game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maybe better than Pandemic? This is the same designer as Pandemic, and has similar gameplay. I will never get rid of Pandemic, it is a classic, but I might actually prefer this?
