Gear up for a thrilling adventure to recover a legendary flying machine buried deep in the ruins of an ancient desert city. You'll need to coordinate with your teammates and use every available resource if you hope to survive the scorching heat and relentless sandstorm. Find the flying machine and escape before you all become permanent artifacts of the forbidden desert!

In Forbidden Desert, a thematic sequel to Forbidden Island, players take on the roles of brave adventurers who must throw caution to the wind and survive both blistering heat and blustering sand in order to recover a legendary flying machine buried under an ancient desert city. While featuring cooperative gameplay similar to Forbidden Island, Forbidden Desert is a fresh new game based around an innovative set of mechanisms, such as an ever-shifting board, individual resource management, and a unique method for locating the flying machine parts.

Customer Reviews

Received great feedback from my niece Her son and daughter loved both Forbidden Dessert and Animal upon Animal. Review by Iviah
I was happy to hear that my niece's children loved the games. It seemed that they enjoyed the games and were playing with them a lot. She loved that the kids are learning cooperation and synergy through the games. She wanted to get one for her nephew too. I was also very pleased with the staff at The Games Capital. They were helpful and courteous over the phone. (Posted on 7/10/2015)
Fun co-op game Review by Scott
This game follows a similar format to it's predecessor Forbidden Island:
- each player has a special role,
- try and find four treasures (or machine parts for Forbidden Desert)
- the game is trying to kill the players (drowning in Island, thirst in Desert)
- the game gets progressively more difficult as time goes on

What is new here is:
- the way that the treasures are discovered (two tiles are uncovered for each treasure; one to indicate where on the x-axis and one for the y-axis)
- players can get more water to survive a bit longer.
- so much sand covering everything

For me, Forbidden Desert is slightly better than it's predecessor, but both are great games. (Posted on 18/08/2015)
