Forbidden Desert: A Bite-Sized Review


Forbidden DesertMy family got me Forbidden Desert for Christmas this year. At first look I thought it was just Forbidden Island with a facelift. It does follow the same theme; the goal is to explore a desert and find parts to an ancient flying machine so you can escape the storm. However there are a number of important differences that come out in play.

TL:DR It’s very hard and very fun; with a number of improvements over its predecessor.



Forbidden Island is Forbidden

Forbidden IslandWell 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…
