This game seems to work for all ages and types- well almost all ages and types. Each play has delivered a thrilling ending.

Brilliant game play with 3D board, love it! The sort of game that begins civil enough with players expectant and sitting down, but ends in a riot of every one standing up and shouting. Great fun!

One of my favorite games ever, lost many hours of my life to this one! The entire game is unique and exciting from the terraformed gameboard to rolling fireballs down cliffs to hit players or knock out bridges. A true underrated and forgotten classic which should be considered for manufacture again.

Features Explorers at it again trying to obtain precious jewels from an Evil Idol. You'd think they had learned by now? lol Explorers need to make it through the treacherous mountain with an Evil Idol over looking their every move. But, watch out! Fireballs can come at you at anytime or even other Explorers greedy to take your precious jewel. Be the first brave Explorer to obtain the jewel and make it back to the dock to escape FIREBALL ISLAND!!!

This rating is purely the result of the joy I got out of this game as a kid. That box cover was such a bad ass mofo! Rolling those red marbles and incinerating my friends and family was such a treat! I also loved dunking those bastards in the rapids while they tried to cross on those fucking bridges. I'd pull this sucker out if I still had it.

Ah, my introduction to "screw you" cards. Memories. I owned this as a kid, donated it to a thrift store when I was a teenager (the box took up too much space), and then bought it again as an adult for . . . $Never.Mind.

This game is seriously cool! Fully 3D board with Indiana Jones-esque player figures, all trying to get that big red jewel and off the island. Nice roll and move race type game with some freedom of movement and some ways to really screw the other players. The game does a good job of keeping all the players together and the race is always really close and tense to the end. The coolest kid's game I've ever seen!

Great board and lots of fun- very shallow depth of play and aimed at the young teens, but enjoyable for all ages. I made a special trip of 30 miles to buy this game and have never been disappointed that I did. Great card play and wooden bridges. After playing it again I am raising my rating- it is just so FUN!

When I first saw it I thought - this is one of the most awesome game boards ever! Wow, so cool! And even if it's a light game, you'll get tons of fiery fun out of this. A sure winner, though hard to find nowadays... and quite expensive in a good condition.

This is probably one of the best move and roll games ever made.

The board is cleverly designed to allow screwage of the leader - via the five fireballs, one located in VulKar's idol at the very top of the three dimensional game board.

Fireball Island has 'press your luck' caves that can be chosen instead of the perscribed paths to victory.

This game also contains special effect cards that can be obtained by selecting a path direction that lands your explorer on a dark space - you have a choice of paths and directions to take after each roll.

These cards can be played both in and out of turn, and by multiple players to counter other player card plays.

The final run of the game board is specifically designed to slow the leaders down. By clever use of path space colors, three dimentional bridges, and fireball paths.

I've played this game with ages 7-50 and each and every player has had a blast, especially the youngest players.

The game allows for 2-4 players but if you can find or make similar 'explorer' pawns, there is no reason that 5 or 6 can't be accomodated with no loss of fun and with even closer results. A recent 5 player game that we played had all five player pawns on the very last 5 spaces of the game board. You can't get any closer than that.

The first wave was a self-contained commissary loaded with Doritos and Orange Crush, but it was determined that diabetes was "taking too long."

The second wave was a shipping container filled with assorted "cargo", mostly ridiculous plaid coats and smallpox blankets.

The third wave broke upon these shores this very morning in the form of mercenaries merrily "gettin' some" from the open door of the helicopter gunship.

The smoke has cleared, all that can bleed are done, and we stride the beach in moral shadow... soon to learn the awful truth about "dead" religions.
