Forbidden Island is a cooperative board game in which everyone must work together to win the game. Players take turns moving around island tiles trying to find treasures. As the game progresses, more and more of the island tiles sink becoming unavailable. As the water level rises, players must decided whether to try to keep the island from sinking or to press forward looking for the treasure. If everyone escapes the island with all the treasure, the team wins, but leave just one adventurer behind and everyone loses.
