If you’re looking for an exciting 3D board game to play, that will allow you to target strategic attacks on your opponents, continue reading to discover everything that you need to know about Fireball Island.
Everything you need to know about the Fireball Island Game:
There are two versions which you can play:
The first version which you can play is the original Fireball Island game which was originally released in 1986. While the second version which you can play is a modern remake of Fireball Island which is named Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-Kar. The latter of which has been designed as a sequel to the original game.
In the original game players would play as treasure hunters who would try to steal a precious jewel from Fireball Island. A task which is harder than it sounds as the protector of the island the mythical Val-Kar would sit at the top of the island’s mountain and would shoot fireballs at each player. In order to try and stop them from making their way around the island and to the top of the mountain. Where they’d find Val-Kar’s rare, priceless jewel.
Both versions of Fireball Island features a 3D board game:
One of the reasons why Fireball Island is such an exciting game to play is that it boasts a 3D board, instead of a traditional 2D board.
The first player to successfully obtain the jewel may not win the game:
If you assumed that the first player to reach the top of the mountain and to steal Val-Kaur’s jewel would win the game think again. In order to be crowned the victor of the game a player must successfully steal Vul-Kar’s jewel and escape the mountain unharmed. A task which is extremely difficult as not only will they become the target of Vul-Kar’s wrath but they can also be targeted by their fellow players. As an example, a player may choose to try and roll a fireball in the direction of their target, in order to try and steal the jewel of Vul-Kar.
In a typical game of Fireball Island, the jewel of Vul-Kar will change hands multiple times. So don’t give up hope if you’re not the first player to obtain Vul-Kar’s jewel. Instead target your opponent, in order to strategically steal their jewel and to make it off Fireball Island with the jewel of Vul-Kar. As the game isn’t over until someone escapes Fireball Island with the jewel of Vul-Kar in their possession.
If you’re already trying to come up with various strategies which you believe will help you win a round of Fireball Island, it’s definitely well worth getting your hands on a copy of Fireball Island.
