Well that’s not quite true. Forbidden Island is a co-operative board game where up to four players try to recover four artifacts from a sinking island and escape with their lives.
I should also mention that it is heaps of fun. You can find the trailer here.
It was also a bit of a gaming departure for me…
I finally picked up Kiln People after seeing it in the stores for a while. I don’t really know why it took me so long to give it a crack; I like David Brin’s Uplift series, I like science fiction, but just haven’t been buying as many books lately.
How was it?
The odds were against it from the start; I felt the central premise was cheesy, but more importantly the last book I read was “The Demolished Man” by Alfred Bester.
TL:DR – I was being a dick. Kiln People was great.
