Guide your expedition through hazardous terrain and hostile territory, exploring the wonders of Isla Dorada while you compete to find the most treasure among your fellow explorers. Designed by the creative team of Bruno Faidutti, Alan R Moon, Andrea Angiolino, and Piergiorgio Paglia, Isla Dorada is a board game of strategic bidding and exploration for 3-6 players.
In Isla Dorada, players join together to form an expedition, navigating through a mysterious and treasure-ridden island. However, since each player is competing to be the one explorer to find the most treasure, they each have their own treasure maps and their own secret motivations. To move the expedition, players bid cards that allow them to move the expedition through certain terrain. Whoever wins the bid gets to move the expedition and potentially find their hidden treasure.
Isla Dorada includes:
•1 full-color rulebook
•1 game board
•1 expedition figure, 1 Bigfoot figure, and 1 Leviathan figure
•19 tokens and markers
•224 goal cards and adventure cards
•6 helpful reference sheets

|Steer the expedition where you want it to by outbidding your opponents. One token represents the expedition; secret goals guide you to steer the expedition to gain points. Treasure increase your bottom line, the Leviathan and Sasquatch can block your path. Awesome game!
|This game deserves a spot in your collection because it is UNIQUE, totally unlike any other game I own. Instead of moving around the island wherever you want, you are all stuck together (for protection) and you have to outbid your fellow-travelers to be able to move the expedition of where you want to go. The bidding, hidden objectives, and interesting end-game-goals make this game very interesting for a fairly light affair.
