Description

Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island is a game created by Ignacy Trzewiczek, the author of Stronghold. This time Trzewiczek takes the players to a deserted island, where they'll play the parts of shipwreck survivors confronted by an extraordinary adventure. They'll 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...

You will build a shelter, palisade, weapons, you will create tools like axes, knives, sacks, you will do everything you can to… to survive.

Never Ending Adventure

Reviewed by on

When setting up a game of Robinson Crusoe, you get the feeling of an adventure waiting to happen. If you immerse yourself into the game, every adventure card, event card, animal hunt and exploration action draws you further into the story line. This game will keep you busy for many, many games and the fan created content available online turns this into a never ending adventure. You'll probably not win many games, but you will undoubtedly have fun losing!

Robinson Crusoe is an exciting, twisting cooperative game where you and some friends will afternoon to survive various scenarios involving being stranded on a desert island. I say attempt because you will most likely fail - but you won't even care, since every bad event or unlucky roll just adds to the great story the game tells.

Easy recommendation, and the best emergent storytelling I have experienced in a board game.
