Hello Everyone,

I'm new to the forum so I apologize if I posted this in the wrong place but I was wondering if there are any games out today that are similar to Fireball Island?

Thanks!

Welcome! This is the right place

My cousin had FI when I was a kid and I mostly remember playing with the components and not the actual game. What did you enjoy most about the game that you're looking for in an easier-to-find modern game?

*edit* The game that comes quickest to mind is The Downfall of Pompeii

I would recommend maybe one of the Adventurers games. They are similar in that you are trying to run from boulders, walk over rickety bridges, step over lava pits, and escape closing walls and falling stones. Great for kids but fun for adults too.

The Adventurers: The Temple of Chac
The Adventurers: The Pyramid of Horus

Check out this geeklist:
VOLCANO games - all in tribute to Iceland

The other day I actually thought about how you could have a series of games based on volcanoes that tell a story of woe.

Taluva - Formation and initial settlement of the island.

Tiki Mountain! - Appease the volcano god by being the first one to throw yourself in.

oh noes! we sacrificed the wrong player!

Mauna Kea - Quick, back to the village ahead of the flowing lava.

Eruption - Save the village from lava.

The village is doomed!

The Downfall of Pompeii - Run for your lives!

Survive: Escape from Atlantis! - GTFO the island.

Tongiaki: Journey into the Unknown - Now we need a new island.

These should definitely give you that 'fireball island' vibe.

Are you looking for games that play like Fireball Island or games that have a theme like Fireball Island?

If you are looking for a game that plays like it, Crash Canyon has a 3D board a lot like FI.

If you are looking for a theme based game, I would recommend Survive: Escape from Atlantis! which is a great game.
