If you missed the boat last time it was around, now might be your chance to hop on the updated edition of Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island. Designed by Portal Games’ veritable owner Ignacy Trzewiczek, Robinson Crusoe has players working as a team of shipwrecked survivors trying to make ends meet on an island full of dangerous animals and unpredictable weather.
A description from the BoardGameGeek website:
“ [Players will] be faced with the challenges of building a shelter, finding food, fighting wild beasts, and protecting themselves from weather changes. Building walls around their homes, animal domestication, constructing weapons and tools from what they find and much more awaits them on the island. The players decide in which direction the game will unfold and – after several in-game weeks of hard work – how their settlement will look. Will they manage to discover the secret of the island in the meantime? Will they find a pirate treasure, or an abandoned village? Will they discover an underground city or a cursed temple at the bottom of a volcano? Answers to these questions lie in hundreds of event cards and hundreds of object and structure cards that can be used during the game…”
This new edition of the game will come with:
- Custom wooden pieces for all resources
- Thick cardboard player boards
- An additional 7th scenario
- A completely re-written rulebook
- Coming in a Ticket to Ride-sized box
September 2016 is the date to look forward to for this award-winning game. For additional information, please visit here.
