Robinson Crusoe: Adventures On The Cursed Island

Description

Robinson Crusoe: Adventure on the Cursed Island is an adventure game where you and your friends play as castaways on an uninhabited island.

You will be faced with the challenges of building a shelter, finding food, fighting wild beasts, and protecting themselves from weather changes. Building walls around your homes, animal domestication, constructing weapons and tools from what you find and much more awaits them on the island. You will decide in which direction the game will unfold and – after several in-game weeks of hard work – how your settlement will look.

Will you manage to discover the secret of the island in the meantime?

Will you find a pirate treasure or an abandoned village?

Will you 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.

There are seven different scenarios included in the box – each will provide you with new, more difficult, and curious ways to play!

    Brilliant game! Once you master how to play it. Unfortunately the rule book supplied is substantially inadequate. Be prepared to spend a little bit of time learning how to play. You can play the same scenario a few times and the outcome is always different. I found these two other pdf instructions helpful: quickstart guide – which is like a walkthrough https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/94275/castaways-quick-start-guide-robinson-crusoe
    also this round sequence guide:
