To jeszcze gra, czy już film?
Arcydzieło wśród gier kooperacyjnych i około-przygodowych. Świeże i ożywcze spojrzenie na planszówkowe mechanizmy, świetna oprawa i namacalny klimat. Długo czekałem na taką grę.
Uwaga - gra ma dość słabo rozpisaną instrukcję, brak jej systematyzacji i skorowidza oraz karty z skrótem zasad. Dajcie jej szanse, bo zasady są banalne!
EDIT: nowa edycja ma już poprawione zasady - nic tylko kupować!

The theme is great, especially for solo play. It's a challenge, I usually lose, but it's still super fun. This is one of those games you find yourself thinking about the next day.

Game of the Year for 2013 I think.
Absolutely love this game, the theme is excellent and brilliantly implemented, especially for a Euro. The mechanics are evil and constantly up against you. The adventures and mystery cards are great, and the 'choices with consequences' aspect to them is genius, making each drawn card have its own little narrative.
There are some design elements which seem a bit dry, and the board is a little colourless for such an adventure game, but this does not detract from it being the most impressive game of the year in every other respect.
Ignacy, I tip my hat to you, sir.
Expansion looks great too...

I enjoy this tremendously. There is a fair amount of luck based on the cards/dice, etc., however, you can mitigate some of it. Even if I lose I usually have a good time playing. The various scenarios gives this a lot of replay value.

I love it! Really hard to play everything as it is supposed to (thx to german rulebook-better start it with the english one) at the first time (First game took 3 hours, second 90 minutes). Gladly we could have tested it in Essen.
Very thematic, challenging, beautiful coop game.
My Number 1 from Essen 2012.
Looking forward to the next session (and the next scenarios :-))

An incredibly thematic struggle for survival. 4 plays and I haven't won the first scenario yet - I have few fears over replayability!

I could play this as a 2 player but it's too good solo so I'm keeping it to myself! Raised to a 10 after 4 plays.

A excellent and thematic co-operative eurogame. I really enjoy this game. The theme and the mechanics blend so well. I love the fact that your decisions actually have consequences later in the game. A well developed game. Rulebook could be better though.

This is a really well designed game. It's addicting. So much going on. Yes, their is a fair amount of luck with dice rolls and card flips, but as with many games, its all about luck management. I really feel like I'm on the island struggling to survive. Plays great solo. Only reason it is not a 10 is because the rulebook is horrible--a perfect example of how NOT to write a rulebook. You can't find anything quickly, no index, poor headings, and constant "important" headings which are meaningless and don't help you find the important info you are looking for. It does take time to learn, but once you do, it is absolutely worth it.

I love this game, played it over two dozen times now, including games of all player counts. I love the theme and the way that the designer matched the mechanisms. There is tension and it builds over the game, which is very hard but not impossible. I love cooperative games, and this one is my favorite now.

Very good cooperative game. The theme is nice and fits the game perfectly. Won my very first game in scenario 1 fairly easy. The other scenarios add a bit more complexity. The mechanics in this game are very well thought through.

The BEST coop game around!!!
I bought one of the few copies that Zman sold at Origins 2013 and I LOVE this game. It takes about 3 hours but it's so much more fun and more thematic than Pandemic. There's a myriad of decisions to make every turn and you really feel like your time is torn between a million things to do to survive. Super fun with 3 or 4 players! This game oozes theme.
