Why It's On The List
  • while thematically a cousin to Matt Leacock's Forbidden Island and mechanically related to Pandemic (both of which will appear on this countdown), this beautifully produced game is somewhere between the two in difficulty & family-friendliness.
Tips & Tricks:
  • The average amount of sand deposited on the board is roughly 1.3 sand per card - which means you MUST watch your pool of sand tokens carefully.
  • Water supplies can be a distraction - or your doom. The first & most important trick to beating the game is getting the balance right.
