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, bringing a chance for infinite riches within your grasp. But you don’t want to share the loot with the rest of the expedition, do you?
Isla Dorada is a charming board game with a classic European-style design. In it, 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 own riches.
Watch your step during your explorations, since dangerous creatures and curses lurk around the hidden corners of this mysterious island. Head to our description page to learn more, download the rules (pdf, 3.6 MB) from our support page, and read our in-depth interview with designer Bruno Faidutti. Then, lead an expedition to your local retailer!
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!
Played this at the BGG Convention with 4 adults. I really enjoyed it. I'm buying it mostly to play with my kids but its a good, non-serious game that fun for adults too. The artwork and bits are beautiful.
I've asked Santa for this one. Thanks for releasing it in time to make it under the tree!
It just looks like one of those games the family will love (and agree to play).
Put in an order for it with the LGS and will be picking it up when it arrives . . . . Bruno Faidutti is a big selling point for me personally.
Ugh. I need money. Money for this.
