Welcome to the Fireball Island! You might have heard stories. You might have visited when you were younger. Maybe you even saw a fireball engulf a fellow traveler in a hellscape of horror that makes you scared to close your eyes at night. Regardless, welcome back! Turns out that Vul-Kar didn't appreciate having his gem stolen way back when, so there has been some volcanic upheaval, an explosion in our snake population, feral tigers, new types of trees bent on ending human life, and swarms of bees everywhere. But don't fret — we have top people working on it.
Start the day of adventure at the helipad. Make sure you sign the waiver, which legally has you take snapshots across the island. You'll race down the multiple paths, avoiding hazards all the while. On the plus side, you get to keep all the treasure you discover.
Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-Kar is a restoration of the classic 1986 game Fireball Island that features a unique 3D island and a bunch of marble mayhem. This new version brings an island that is even bigger than the original (and yet fits in a smaller box) and more marbles. It is a family type game for 2 - 4 players (5 with an expansion) that plays in 30-45 minutes. Easy card play replaces the random roll-and-move of the original, and the set collection for the treasures provides some interesting choices for players.
Remember, you don't have to outrun the fireball - only the other players.
