Forbidden Island

This is a great problem-solving tabletop game for kids to teach cooperation and problem solving.  In this game, if you don’t work together, no one wins.  Literally.

The game is for four players, but I imagine you may be able to play it in teams if you take turns making the moves.  The object of the game is to gather the four treasures and get rescued from the island before it sinks.  Every player has a different part to play.

The game is best for 8 years and up, and is played best with 4 people.  Play time is about 30 minutes.

I will bring the game with us and if the kids are open, we can give it a go!

From the publisher’s website:

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!
