I play the game at seven levels of difficulty:

1. Novice
2. Novice with the skull lowered one level
3. Normal
4. Normal with the skull lowered one level
5. Elite
6. Elite with the skull lowered one level
7. Legendary

Since the card-draw numbers on the meter remain in fixed positions, this offers fined-tuned increases in difficulty between the normal levels at new calibrations.

Also it's sometimes fun to say that you can't win if the helipad you're flying off of is flooded. The rules say it does not matter, but often the game is too easy if the helipad card is in the bottom seven or so of the deck, or if the helipad tile is close to dead center of the board.

Have you ever try the new official variant island setup? it certainly much more difficult.

If so, have you ever try Forbidden Desert yet? it much more difficult with many new features to play with.
