  1. Kyle

    Forbidden Desert is a good gateway game into the co-op gaming universe. The game could easily be played with families and older kids (maybe, 9-10?) and has enough substance where adults can quite happily play it.

    The game has a nice cohesive theme, interesting mechanics and doesn’t suffer from a fixed board layout, so it has solid replayability.

    Things can get tense in later game when it comes down to the wire, co-operation and co-ordination is must!

    The game may be a bit too simplistic for some, or may hit the perfect balance for lighter gamers; either way, it’s one you can easily pull out to play with non-gamers.

    A solid co-op game with great replayability. We pull this out with gamers and non-gamers alike. This is a game that runs the risk of an alpha taking over everyone’s turns though. We really enjoy it as a light co-op between heavier games or when we’re short of time.
