Went with my fiance and her 9 y/o to visit my parents a couple weekends ago. Got to digging around in the game closet and pulled out good old Fireball Island.
Hadn’t played it for years, but I remembered it being a good time…and also causing a lot of fights between my and my brother! (No, you may NOT nudge your token to the veryveryedge of the space before I roll the fireball. Quit cheating.)
The kiddo was really in to it, having won his first game. He wanted to take it home, but it belongs at Grammy and Gramps’ house, so I thought I’d try to find it and buy a copy for his birthday.
Um. Those things don’t come cheap. Worth some bucks now, prohibitively expensive for a birthday present.
So game buffs, are there any similar 3d board games that FEEL and PLAY a lot like Fireball Island that I can grab for him instead?
Also, feel free to make this a general discussion about Fireball Island. I knew it was a fun game, but until I Googled it I didn’t realize that it’s a little bit famous.
