|Isla Dorada | Published 02 August 2010|
Legends of unimaginable treasure surround the mysterious island of Isla Dorada. Several ancient civilizations once carved out a mighty empire on its shores, but the passage of time and the ravaging of wild beasts have driven them to ruin, leaving behind priceless artifacts and confusing maps to their hidden locations.
Now the year is 1934, and your expedition has crash landed on this exotic island. Your chance for infinite riches is within your grasp. But you don’t want to share the loot with the rest of the expedition, do you?
Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce the upcoming release of Isla Dorada! Guide your expedition through hazardous terrain and hostile territory, exploring the wonders of Isla Dorada while you compete to find the most treasure among your fellow explorers. Designed by Bruno Faidutti (with the help of Alan R Moon, Andrea Angiolino, and Piergiorgio Paglia), Isla Dorada is a board game of strategic bidding and exploration for 3-6 players.
In Isla Dorada, players join together to form an expedition, navigating through a mysterious and treasure-ridden island. However, since each player is competing to be the one explorer to find the most treasure, they each have their own treasure maps and their own secret motivations. To move the expedition, players bid cards that allow them to move the expedition through certain terrain. Whoever wins the bid gets to move the expedition and potentially find their hidden treasure.
Watch your step during your explorations, since dangerous creatures and curses lurk around the hidden ways of Isla Dorada.
Keep watching in the coming weeks, when we’ll launch a full website for Isla Dorada, including detailed images and a summary of play. Be ready, the expedition begins this fall!
In Isla Dorada, 3-6 players take on the roles of explorers who have crash landed on an exotic and mysterious island. Through bidding and negotiation, players vie for control of the expedition marker, thereby moving the entire group to serve their own agendas. Outwit and outbid your opponents to become the wealthiest explorer to leave the island!
Adventure games are always and I bet this is no exception. But doesn't the cards look a bit childish? Certainly not something I'm used to see in a FFG board game...
