(players need to get a codebook, disguise, key, and password) However, if an opponent guesses your identity before you win, you are out. If they incorrectly guess, then THEY are out. Players bluff by purchasing items of nationalities that they do NOT need to win.

Spirit Island


Spirit Island is a complex and thematic cooperative game about defending your island home from colonizing Invaders. Players are different spirits of the land, each with its own unique elemental powers. Every turn, players simultaneously choose which of their power cards to play, paying energy to do so. Using combinations of power cards that match a spirit’s elemental affinities can grant free bonus effects. Faster powers take effect immediately before the Invaders spread and ravage, but other magics are slower, requiring forethought and planning to use effectively. In the Spirit phase, spirits gain energy, and choose how / whether to Grow: to reclaim used power cards, to seek for new power, or to spread presence into new areas of the island.

Number of Players: 1-4 players
