Great fun solo or with the family

I've had my eye on this for a while and I'm so glad I finally took the plunge and ordered it. Yes, it can be punishing but that makes a hard-won success all the more satisfying. And there are ways to tweak the difficulty to make it easier - for example, when playing with my kids we always include Friday and the Dog to help us out.

The game really gives you a sense of being stuck on an island and having to deal with everything fate can throw at you. I love the way the event cards add to the narrative and by the end of the game you feel like you've played out an epic tale!

Who knew being deserted on a fierce island could be so fun!

This game is rather difficult, but there are options for tweaking the difficulty. The components are excellent, the story and scenarios are rich and overall it’s a lot of fun!

Robinson Crusoe: Adventure on the Cursed Island (4th Edition) is a co-op game that brings to life emotions from the best novels of Jules Verne and Daniel Defoe. Simple rules are perfectly combined with theme and allow players to fully imagine dreadful events that take place on a deserted island.

Players will find themselves 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...

Take the role of one of four characters from the ship crew (cook, carpenter, explorer and soldier) and face the adventure. Use your determination skills to help your team mates, discuss with them your plan and put it into practice. Debate, discuss, work on the best plan you all can make.


Search for treasures. Discover mysteries. Follow goals of six different, engaging scenarios. Start from building a big pile of wood and fire it to call for help, and then start new adventures. Become exorcist on cursed Island. Become treasure hunter on Volcano Island. Become a rescue team for a young lady who’s stuck on rock island…

Let the adventure live!

In this fourth edition players will find custom wooden pieced for all resources, thick cardboard player boards for each character, additional 7th scenario and what’s most important completely rewritten rulebook based on the precise and well written German version.
