Return to the treacherous Fireball Island, this time in search of treasure, artifacts… and the perfect photo-op!
Fireball Island: Curse of Vul-Kar is a point-to-point movement game with card drawing and dexterity elements.
On each player’s turn, they will play one of the two action cards they have in their hand. The cards control the player’s movement for that turn or affect other players in various ways. Many of these cards will also allow the player to rotate Vul-Kar or the various trees placed around the island.
If a Cataclysm card is drawn, Vul-Kar spits fireballs in whichever direction he is facing (rather, the player drops marbles through his head, but c’mon, use your imagination). Hopefully, players have carefully positioned themselves behind the island’s trees, which can deflect the fireballs and are not standing on a rickety bridge or ladder when it is struck by a fireball.
Rather than in the original Fireball Island, in Curse of Vul-Kar, players are mainly attempting to explore the island to be the first get three pictures from the scenic vistas around the island.
Additionally, along the way players can grab treasures and relics which will grant points at the end of the game.
Once a player has taken three photos and returns to the helipad, the end of game sequence begins. The remaining players have two turns to return to the helipad to make it off the island before they chopper leaves. Once the game is over, players tally their victory points from treasures and photos collected to determine the winner.
The Kickstarter has many other goodies and even some expansions you can get right off the bat.
