This game’s so fun you’ll enjoy playing it even without your kids. My husband and I regularly play it after the kids are in bed!
This is a cooperative game, which is always a plus when it comes to board games for all ages. In the game, you work together to collect treasure before the ancient island you’re on sinks into the ocean – plus you have to rescue your whole team off the island with a helicopter before you sink with the island. Even though I know it’s not real, my heart races every time we get to the end of this game!
Note: The manufacturer says this is for ages 10 and up, but according to several other families (including mine!) most 7-year-olds who can read are ready for this game.
From the Manufacturer
Dare to discover Forbidden Island! Join a team of fearless adventurers 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!
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!
