In Robinson Crusoe, as you might guess, players are stranded on a remote island. There are six scenarios wich all play quite differently. The main challenge is, of course, to survive. To do this, you will explore the island, collect food and wood, build a camp, weapons and other items or go hunting. Two actions per turn are available for each player. At the end of the turn, there´ll be the night phase when you have to consume food or depending on the roll of the weather dice, you need some good protection against rain or snow. If not enough food or shelter is available, you´ll lose health and moral. Lots of event cards add much to the narrative element wich is really strong in this game…at least for a euro.
This game plays perfectly solo, because you´ll get help from Friday and a dog, both cahracters with limited options that you can control.
Components are fine, the art is nice too, but for some reason, I don´t see it as one of my really good games. Maybe it simply feels too euroish to me.
I do a playthrough here.
