In what we consider a pretty unique theme, you and your fellow players are powerful spirits that have existed on an isolated island for time immemorial. As a spirit you are both part of the natural world and something supernatural. You coexist reasonably peacefully with the native islanders, the Dahan, but are now being faced with invaders from a far away land who are trying to colonize your island.
In this cooperative game, all players must work together to enhance their spirit strength and stop the spread of these invasive and growing foreign (human) invaders. But beware: as you gain strength, so do the invaders. All spirits start out with very little strength (think Casper the friendly ghost as opposed to Montezuma), but small actions quickly make you more powerful. Your goal is to rid the island of the colonizers while also protecting the Dahan, so in fun twists, you may also face broad natural disasters like fires or famine that can threaten the Dahan. If they die out, you lose - so be careful with all your decisions!
If there were an inside out Pandemic, this would be it.
- Meets the challenge - the twists in this game make it a great new game for an advanced board gamer
- Two player - this game is great for just two - not all games are!
- Also great for solo play!
