Hello!

I like the subject "survival" ... where the players must survive in a hostile environment; at the moment I own OUTDOOR SURVIVAL (AVALON HILL) and ROBINSON CRUSOE: ADVENTURE ON THE CURSED ISLAND (PORTAL PUBLISHING).
The last one is really a FANTASTIC GAME ... one of the best I have bought this year; great to play solitaire or with other players, and with a map designed to be perfectly functional (it is beautiful to look as well).

I have seen also a game called SAFE RETURN DOUBTFUL but I don't own it yet.

Do you know other games about "survival in a hostile environment"?

Thanks in advance!

Roberto

The Disaster in the Himalayas series by Tom Decker is really good. There are currently three games in that series.

The road is full of flat squirrels, who couldn't make up their mind.

The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Game Looks like it is best used to keep yourself warm if you are stuck in the woods.

I've got K2 and K2: Broad Peak so I can +1 those.

Hmm. Well, there's certainly a survival element in all of those recommended games, but none of them are the type of man-versus-nature "survival" games such as Outdoor Survival and Robison Crusoe.

How about Survive: Escape from Atlantis!

(edit -- I see someone suggested the earlier version. The game has been republished!)
