Game Schooler Recommendation
Forbidden Island and the classic Pandemic were both designed by Matt Leacock, and the two games share structural DNA. However, Forbidden Island caters toward a younger audience with more accessible gameplay. Forbidden Island is an excellent cooperative family game with opportunities to develop logistic, spatial perception, and risk management skills.
Game Overview
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!
