Forbidden Desert. 

Forbidden Dessert is the stunning sequel to the award-wining family cooperative game Forbidden Island and prequil to Forbidden Sky. Working as a team, each player will take on the role of an adventurer, each with their own unique abilities.

To win the game you must locate and recover a legendary flying machine that has been buried deep in the sand under the ruins of an ancient city.

With similar gameplay to the original, this follow-up game offers an inventive new set of mechanisms, such as an innovative way of locating the flying machine parts on an ever-shifting board. This makes it feel familiar, but different enough to warrant owning both!

You will need to coordinate with your teammates and use every resource available if you have any hope of escaping the Forbidden Dessert.

Reviews of Forbidden Desert

This is a brilliant introduction to co-operative gaming, I prefer Forbidden Island as an entry level co-op but Forbidden Desert is a little more taxing. Cleverly balanced gameplay and plenty of tactical planning with a dollop of luck makes Forbidden Desert a very good game. - Board Game Review UK

    This is my favourite of the forbidden series. The dynamic treasure hunting mechanic is genius and a lot of fun. I love it!
