Before each game, players select which
scenario they want to play (it is recommended to
start with Scenario 1).
Every scenario comes with its own Scenario
card which describes:
• The number of rounds played
• The weather conditions
• The scenario objective(s)
• 4 discoveries
• 2 Inventions
• 1 Scenario effect (Book icon)
• A series of tile effects (Totem icon)
The following is the standard setup used in
the basic Scenario “Castaways”. When playing
a different scenario, check the Scenario chapter
to see if there are any modifications to the setup.
SETUP
1. Place the board in the middle of the table.
2. Each player draws a random Character card
and places it in front of them. (In a two-player
game, randomly draw a Character card out of
only the following three: Carpenter, Cook and
Explorer). Unused Character cards should be put
back into the box. Each Character card shows a
particular Invention. The matching card should
be removed from the Invention deck and placed
face up (Invention side up) on their Character
card. Each player should also take 2 pawns in
the color of their choice (blue, yellow, black or
orange) and 1 Wound marker which they place
on the leftmost space of their Character’s life
track.
3. Put a white marker on level 0 of the Morale
track on the main board.
4. Put a black marker on the topmost space of
the Weapon level track (next to the Weapon icon
which represents level 0).
5. Take the 9 Invention cards marked with the
symbol
beside their names,
and another 5 random Invention cards and
place them Invention side up in the appropriate
spaces on the main board. Shtuffle the remaining
Invention cards and place them Invention side
up near the main board, creating the Invention
deck.
6. Separate the Aventure cards by their backs.
Shuffle each set and place them face down next to
the appropriate Action fields on the main board.
7. Shuffle the Beast cards and place them face
down near the main board, creating the Beast
deck (note that this deck is not the same as the
Hunting deck that is created from Beast cards
during the course of game).
8. Shuffle the Mystery cards and place them
face down near the main board, creating the
Mystery deck.
9. Take the Island tile marked with the number 8
and place it face up (island side) in the indicated
Island space on the main board. Place the Camp
token (Camp side up) on that tile.
10. Put a black marker on the Shovel card, to
cover the required terrain type icon, i.e. beach.
This terrain type is explored at the start of the
game by placing the first Island tile (see point 9).
11. Shuffle the remaining Island tiles and place
them in a face down stack near the main board.
12. Shuffle the 8 Starting Item cards, draw 2 of
them and place them face up next to the main
board. These Items are shared by the players.
Each Item can be used only twice during the
game, and players can use them at any time
(unless stated otherwise on the card). Place two
black markers on the lower part of each Item
card (to cover the boxes icons). The remaining
Starting Item cards are returned to the box.
13. Shuffle the Discovery tokens and place them
in a face down stack near the main board.
14. Place all the resource cubes, markers,
remaining tokens, additional pawns, and all the
dice (Action dice and Weather dice) within easy
reach of all players, next to the main board.
15. Place the selected Scenario card near the
main board, and put the Round marker on the
“Round 1” space on the Scenario card.
16. Separate the Event cards into two face down
piles – one that shows a Book icon, and the other
that shows an Adventure icon (of any color) –
and shuffle each. Then divide the number of
rounds depicted on the selected Scenario card
by 2 (round up), take that number of cards from
each pile, shuffle them together, and place them
face down in the Event space on the main board,
creating the Event deck. Any remaining Event
cards should be placed back in the box.
For example, the basic Scenario “Castaways”
has 12 rounds: take 6 random Event cards with
a Book icon and 6 with an Adventure icon, and
shuffle them together.
17. Place the Wreckage card “Food crates” in the
rightmost space of the Threat Action field.
18. The youngest player takes the First Player
token. The First Player has two additional duties
during the game:
- he is the player who gets or discards
Determination tokens in the Morale phase;
- he resolves any disagreements between players.
19. When there are 4 players, take the special
“Arranging the Camp” card and place it on the
board covering the corresponding space.
20. When there are only 2 players, they have an
additional Character – Friday. Take the Friday
card as well as the white pawn, and place them
within easy reach of the players, near the board.
Take a Wound marker and put it on the leftmost
space of Friday’s life track. 2

GAME OBJECTIVE
Name
Robinson Crusoe is a cooperative game. The
players will either all share the victory (if they all
survive and fulfill the Scenario goal), or all lose
(if one of the Characters dies, or if they do not
fulfill the Scenario goal in the designated number
of rounds).

ROUND ORDER
The game is played over a number of rounds depicted
on the selected Scenario card. Each round is divided into
phases, which are executed in the following order:
Markers used to indicate
how many times you can
use the Item are placed
here (discard one marker
after each use).
Starting Item cards
Starting Item cards are shared by the players.
Each Item can be used only twice during the game.
To help you remember the number of times used,
place two black markers in the lower part of such
cards (these will cover the box icons). During the
game, anytime a player uses a Starting Item, they
should discard a black marker from that particular
card and after the second marker is removed, the
Starting Item card should be discarded.
Starting Items can be used at any time during
the game, even at the beginning (unless stated
otherwise on the card). For example, the players
have an “Empty bottle” which allows them to
increase their Weapon level by 1 each time it is
used. Players could decide to use it both times
at the very beginning of the game to start with
Weapon level 2, and then discard that card.

1. Event phase
2. Morale phase
Skip this phase in the first round.
Starting in the second round (and each round thereafter),
draw the top card from the Event deck and immediately
resolve it.
At the beginning of the game, there are only Event cards
in the Event deck. However, during the course of the game,
you will shuffle some Adventure and/or Mystery cards into
this Event deck.
If you draw an Adventure or Mystery card from the Event
deck, resolve its Event effect, discard the card and draw
another card from the Event deck (as is indicated on the
Adventure or Mystery card itself). As a result, you will likely
draw and resolve several Event effects from Adventure or
Mystery cards before you finally draw an Event card.
Check the Morale level that is tracked with the white
marker on the Morale track of the main board.
Depending on the Morale level, the First Player:
– has to discard the depicted number of Determination
tokens, or
– neither discards nor gains anything (level 0), or
– gains the depicted number of Determination tokens
(at the highest level, the First Player can choose to gain
2 Determination tokens or heal 1 Wound).
If the First Player has to discard more Determination
tokens then he has, he must discard all that he has and
receives 1 Wound for each missing token (according to the
general rule of Unfulfilled Demand, see Additional Rules
on page 13).
Example: The player draws an Adventure card
from the Event deck. There’s an Event effect,
“Storm”, which instructs him to put a Storm token
in the Weather space, and then draw another
card. The next card is also an Adventure card,
and because of its Event effect “Collapse”, the
players need to decrease the Roof level by half
(the loss is rounded down) and draw another
card. At last, this next card is an Event card.
Example: If Morale is on the lowest level, the First Player
must discard 3 Determination tokens, but he only has 1. He
discards it and receives 2 Wounds.

Event effect
Players get resources during the Production phase based
on which sources are located on the Island tile where the
players’ Camp is located. Each source on this Island tile
provides one resource cube. There are 2 types of sources:
- source of food
/
which provides
, and
- source of wood
which provides
.
All of the resources that players receive in the Production
phase (or in some rare instances, the Event phase) should
be placed in the Available Resources space. These resources
are available to use by the players immediately.
When you draw an Event card:
1. First, observe whether the card is marked with an
Adventure icon (
) or with a Book icon ( ).
If it shows an Adventure icon, take the appropriate token
and put it on the appropriate Action field on the main board.
If it shows a Book icon, check its meaning on the Scenario
card (the meaning will vary in each Scenario).
2. Resolve the Event effect of the card, and then place the
card on the rightmost space of the Threat Action field on
the main board.
If there is already one card on the righmost space, the
previous card is moved to the left so the new card can be
placed on the rightmost space, eventually pushing a card
on the leftmost space.
If, as a result of sliding the Event cards, this pushes the
card located on the left off the main board, the Threat effect
of that card is now resolved, and then the card is discarded.

Note!
Each Action can be taken multiple times in the same
round, except for the Threat Action, which is always a onetime Action taken on a specific card, after which the card is
discarded. There can be a maximum of 2 Threat Actions to
take because there are 2 Threat Action fields on the main
board. Each Threat action must target a different Event card.
4. Action phase
This is the most important phase of the game and consists
of two stages: Planning and Resolving Actions.
Important!
Several Actions, including Building, Gathering Resources,
and Exploration, can be taken with 1 or 2 pawns.
If only 1 pawn is assigned, then, while resolving the
Action, you will have to roll all 3 Action dice of the
respective color (
)to see if the Action is successful,
if you get wounded, and if you have an Adventure.
If 2 pawns are assigned, the Action is guaranteed to be
successful, and you will not need to roll any dice.
Note: The second pawn can be a player’s pawn, or an
additional pawn (from various effects, see next page).
4.1 Planning actions
There are no individual player turns, instead all players
decide as a group which Actions they wish to take. Players
indicate their choices by assigning their pawns to the
various Actions that are available to them.
The pawns are used to represent the Characters’ activity
on the island. As such, with their two pawns, each player
can take up to 2 Actions. However, note that many Actions
require more than one pawn to be assigned to them in
order for the Action to be resolved.
The Actions are as follows (each with a brief description):
1. Threat Action (requires one or more pawns) – The
number of pawns required for each Threat Action is always
depicted on the specific Event card.
This Action is taken to prevent the Threat effect of an
Event card (located in the Threat Action field) from taking
place. Once resolved, this Action provides the players
with a benefit which is described on the card (often as
Determination tokens or resources).
2. Hunting (available only if there is a Hunting
deck of at least one Beast card — always requires
2 pawns to be resolved).
Hunting allows a player to get a food and/or furs but it
usually results in that player also receiving Wounds.
3. Building – (Can be taken with either 1 or
2 pawns, see below for further details).
Building allows players to build a Shelter, a Roof,
a Palisade or Weapons, and turn Inventions into Items.
4. Gathering Resources – (Can be taken with
either 1 or 2 pawns, see below for further details).
Gathering Resources allows players to gain resources
from certain explored Island tiles (wood or food).
5. Exploration – (Can be taken with either 1 or
2 pawns, see below for further details).
Exploration allows players to explore the Island by
placing subsequent Island tiles on the main board.
6. Arranging the Camp – (Requires 1 pawn.)
Each time a player takes this Action, he receives
2 Determination tokens and increases the Morale
level by 1 on the main board (in a 4-player game,
each time a player takes the Arranging the Camp Action,
he either receives 2 Determination tokens or increases the
Morale level by 1 on the main board).
7. Rest - (Requires 1 pawn.)
Each time a player takes this Action, he heals
1 Wound.
How to assign pawns?
To indicate which Actions have been selected during this
phase, each player should place his pawns (and optionally
any additional pawns) in the appropriate spaces on the
board as follows:
COUNCIL
All night, you were talking
about your future
on the island. Your initial
ideas will not
work and your plans have
to change.
You are not able to create
all the items you want.
- for the Threat Action, place
pawn(s) on the respective Event
card(s).
Discard 3 Invention cards.
BRAINSTORM
Get 1 Invention card of your
choice
and
, discard this card.
Discard 2 Invention cards.
- for Hunting, place pawns on
the Hunting Action field.
- for Building, depending on the element you wish to build,
place pawn(s) on the Shelter, Roof, Palisade or Weapons
track, on the selected Invention card, etc.
6
- for Gathering Resources, place
the pawn(s) above the one specific
source on the Island tile(s)
from which you are gathering
resources (only above one source,
even if the Island tile shows two
sources)
Additional Pawns
During the course of the game, players can gain additional
pawns to use while planning Actions. For example, the effect of
Building certain Items (like the Map or the Lantern), the effect of
certain Mystery cards (like Candles) or certain Discovery tokens,
can provide players with additional pawns. These additional pawns
are used during the planning Action phase in the same way that
players’ pawns are, with the following two exceptions: (a) they are
always restricted to certain types of Actions to which they can be
assigned to (as described on the card/token), and (b) they cannot
be used to take any Action on their own - they must always be
used to support a player, and can only be assigned to an Action
if a player’s pawn has already been assigned to that Action. For
example, when taking the Exploration Action, you cannot assign
the additional pawn from the Compass card and the additional
pawn from the Map Item without a player pawn – at least one
player’s pawn must be assigned to the Exploration Action.
- for Exploration, place the
pawn(s) on the unexplored
space(s) of the island you want to
explore
- for Arranging the Camp, place
the pawn(s) on the Arranging the
Camp Action field
More details about the Actions
Threat Action
Each round, during the Event phase, a new Event card
will be placed in the Threat Action Field after it is resolved.
Each of these cards (except Wreckage cards – see below) will
have a specific Threat effect and Threat Action described on
it. If a previously placed Event card is moved off the board
after placing a new Event card in the Threat Action Field,
the removed card’s Threat effect will need to be resolved.
In order to prevent this from happening, during the Action
phase players can plan to resolve the specific Threat Action
described on the card by assigning the required number of
pawns (1 or 2) and meeting any additional requirements
(for example: discard food or wood, have a certain Weapon
level, etc.). If players meet these requirements during the
resolve Action phase, they receive the benefits described
on the card (usually Determination tokens), and then
discard the card thereby preventing the Threat effect from
occurring later in the game.
Although each Threat Action can only be taken once per
card (since the card is discarded after it is resolved), up
to two Threat Actions can be taken during a round if two
such cards are located in the Threat Action Field.
- for Rest, place the pawn(s) on
the Rest Action field
Important!
When an Action is taken with more than 1 pawn, those
pawns can come from more than one player, or they may
come from additional pawns gained during the game. If
they come from multiple players, those players should
decide which player is going to take the Action, and who
is only supporting (his pawn is treated like an additional
pawn, as described below). This is important because the
effects of certain Actions (and Adventure cards resolved
during Actions) affect only the player taking the Action
and not the whole group (i.e. Hunting).
Example: The players want to take the
Threat Action “Chanty”. Resolving this
Action allows players to discard the Event
card, gain 2 Determination tokens, and
increase the Morale level by 1, but these
Determination tokens are only gained
by the player taking the Action. So if
two different players decide that each of
them is going to assign 1 of their pawns
to this Action, they should also decide
who among them will be taking the
Action and who is only supporting.

card). Players can choose only one of the possible options
when taking this Action, after which they discard the card.
When built, Items usually provide some additional
benefits which can help you during the game.
B
Building
With each Building Action, players can build
a Shelter, a Roof, a Palisade, or Weapons, or turn an
Invention into an Item.
Shelter – Protects you from getting Wounds for sleeping in
the open air during the Night phase. Once built, the Shelter
cannot be lost for the remainder of the game. To indicate
this, place a black marker on the applicable space on the
main board. Note that certain Island tiles also contain a
Shelter which is different from a player-built Shelter.
Roof – Protects you from the weather conditions during
the Weather phase. To build a Roof, there must be a Shelter
(either built or discovered) on the Island tile where your
Camp is located. Each time you build a Roof, increase its
level by 1 by adjusting the respective marker on the board.
Palisade – Usually protects you from the Storm effect and
some other effects during the game. To build a Palisade,
there must be a Shelter (either built or discovered) on the
Island tile where your Camp is located. Each time you build
a Palisade, increase its level by 1 by adjusting the respective
marker on the main board.
Weapons – are required for Hunting. The higher the
Weapon level, the less likely it is that a player will receive
Wounds while Fighting a Beast. Each time you build a
Weapon, increase its level by 1 by adjusting the respective
marker on the main board.
Items – Building certain Items generally provides some
additional benefits (either immediately or during the
course of the game) which can be helpful to the players
(for example, the Map provides players with an additional
pawn for Exploration).
The Shelter, Roof and Palisade all have the same cost
depending on the number of players, as depicted in the
applicable table on the main board. You can pay the build
cost in either wood or furs, but not with a mix of both. For
example, in a 3-player game, you need to discard either
3 wood or 2 furs to build the Shelter, but you could not pay
2 wood and 1 fur.
Examples:
- Fire increases the Palisade level by 1 and lets you build
the Fireplace.
- Knife increases the Weapon level by 1 and lets you build the Bow.
- Map gives players an additional pawn for Exploration and is
required to build the Shortcut.
Inventions which you can turn into Items can be found
in several locations:
- on the main board (available to everyone);
- on each of the Character boards (and can only be built by
that player);
- on the selected Scenario card (available to everyone).
Note: Each Item may only be built once (unless lost).
VERY IMPORTANT!
Several Actions (mostly Threat Actions and Building)
have additional requirements for taking the Action (e.g.
discarding a resource, having a specific Item, or a minimum
Weapon level, etc.).
While resolving Actions, players can only use resources
which they already had when they planned the Actions (i.e.
those resources that are in the Available Resources space).
They cannot use any resources gained in the same Action
phase (although Actions are resolved in a certain order, you
should always imagine that they are all done simultaneous),
so when planning Actions, you should not only assign
pawns to certain Actions, but it is also recommended to
assign the required resources from the Available Resources
space to avoid any confusion.
Example: In a 3-player game, you need to spend 3 wood
(or 2 furs) to build a Shelter. Thus, while planning for this Action,
you should already have the 3 wood (or 2 furs) and assign them
along with the pawn(s) to Building Shelter.
The same rule applies to Items – you can only use items
during this phase which you already had while planning
the Actions.
Example: To build the Bow, you need the Knife. This means
that you cannot build the Knife and the Bow in the same round.
If you want to build the Bow in a round, you must have built the
Knife in a prior round.
Each time you build Weapons, you need to discard
1 wood.
Depicted in the upper part of the Invention card are the
requirements for Building a particular Invention into an
Item. This is called the requirement field.
It can be:
- explored terrain type
- another Item already built
- resource(s) to discard
The same rule applies to the Weapon level. Some Threat
Actions require having a minimum Weapon level to take
these Actions – you cannot take such an Action if you do
not have the required minimum Weapon level at the time
you are planning the Actions.
8
Gathering Resources can only be performed on
Island tiles that are either (a) adjacent to the Island
tile where the players’ Camp is located, or (b) one
tile away from the Island tile where the players’ Camp is
located (see below). This Action cannot be taken directly
on the Island tile with the players’ Camp since players get
resources from that tile during the Production phase.
From each source that is on an Island tile, you can gather
only 1 respective resource (it can be modified by the effects
of some Items, Adventures, Events, etc.).
You can gather only once per round from each source; i.e.
if one player assigns his pawn(s) to gather from one source,
no other player can gather from that same source this round.
Before assigning any pawns to a chosen Action during planning, the
players should always check the board (especially Action fields and
Island tiles/spaces) to see if there are any tokens (described below) that
affect Action resolution.
+
During the next Action of the indicated type that requires rolling the
Action dice, you have to reroll the Success die one time if it shows a
Success on the first roll. Discard the token after resolving its effect.
During the next Action of the indicated type, you must draw and
resolve an Adventure card, regardless of how many pawns you assigned
to the Action, and whether you rolled an Adventure on the Adventure
die or not. Discard the token after resolving its effect.
If you roll an Adventure on the Adventure die and an Adventure
token is also located on the same Action space, you only resolve one
Adventure card and you discard the token.
Exploration can only be performed on unexplored
spaces that are either (a) adjacent to the Island
tile where the players’ Camp is located or (b) one
explored tile away from the Island tile where the players’
Camp is located (there can be at most one Island tile
between the space players want to explore and the tile
where their Camp is located, see below).
+
When this token is located next to the Hunting deck, it means that for
the next Hunting Action, you must add 1 to the Beast’s strength. Discard
the token after resolving its effect.
When this token is located on the Island tile/space where you are
planning to take an Action, it means that you must have at least a
Weapon level of 1 during every Action (regardless of the type) on that
tile/space, or the player taking the Action gets 1 Wound.
When you take a Gathering Resources or Exploration Action
on a tile or space that is not adjacent to the Island tile where your
Camp is located, then you need to assign one more pawn than
normally required for an Action. In other words: you have to assign
2 pawns minimum, which will require the roll of the Action dice.
If you assign 3 pawns, the Action is guaranteed to be successful (no
rolling of dice needed).
When this token is located next to an Action field, it means that for
the next Action of that type, you have to assign one more pawn than
normally required (i.e. 2 pawns instead of 1, 3 pawns instead of 2, etc.).
Discard the token after resolving its effect.
When this token is located on the Island tile/space where you are
planning to take an Action, it means that to take the Action on this
tile/space, you have to assign one more pawn than normally required
(i.e. 2 pawns instead of 1, 3 pawns instead of 2, etc.).
When this token is located on a Building Action field, it means that
during the next Building Action that requires wood, you have to spend
one additional wood than normally required. Discard the token after
resolving its effect.
When this token is located on the Shelter, Roof, Palisade or Weapons
Cost field, then each time you want to build the corresponding item,
you must spend one additional wood than normally required (but only
if you use wood for building).
When this token is located on an Island tile, this tile provides 1 more
wood than it normally does (while Gathering Resources or in the
Production phase).
Each player’s pawn that is assigned to the Arranging the
Camp or Rest Actions is resolved separately. For example,
in a three-player game, if one player assigns both of his
pawns to Arranging the Camp, he resolves this Action
twice, and as a result, he receives 4 Determination tokens
and increases Morale by 2 levels.
IMPORTANT ! Tokens located on the Action fields are discarded
after resolving their effect, while tokens located on other parts of the
board usually stay there for the rest of the game.
4.2 Resolving Action
After all players have assigned all their pawns, start
resolving Actions in the order described below. You
only resolve Actions with pawns assigned to them:
1. Threat Action
Discard the required resources depicted on the card (if any)
and follow the instruction on the card. Then discard the card
and gain any resources or Determination tokens shown.
9
If a player gains any resources from a Threat Action, he
should place them in the Future Resources space (they will
only be available after all Actions have been resolved).
If a player gains any Determination tokens, he places
them in his own supply, and they can be used immediately.
Rolling Action dice
For each of the listed Actions there are 3 respective Action dice:
Building
Gathering Resources
Exploration
2. Hunting
Draw top card from the Hunting deck and Fight the Beast
depicted on the card as described below.
Each set consists of a Wound die, a Success die, and an Adventure die.
The possible outcomes you can roll are:
Wound die:
Fighting a Beast:
Get 1 Wound
1. Compare the Beast’s strength to the player’s current Weapon level. If the Weapon level is lower than the Beast’s strength,
the player fighting the Beast gets 1 Wound for each missing
Weapon level.
2. Decrease Weapon level by the number shown on the
card.
3. Gain the number of food shown on the card and place them
in the Future Resources space (it will only be available after all
Actions have been resolved).
4. Gain the number of fur shown and place them in the Future
Resources space (they will only be available after all Actions
have been resolved).
5. Decrease the Palisade level by the number shown (this effect appears only on a few Adventure cards).
6. Apply any other additional effects and discard the card.
Success die:
The Action is
successful, meaning
you resolve the Action
(build, gather resources
or explore)
Gained food
The Action is unsuccessful, but you gain
2 Determination
tokens instead
Adventure die:
Draw the top Adventure
card from the respective
deck and resolve it
Nothing happens
The outcome rolled on each die is independent of the others,
meaning that regardless of what you rolled on the Success die,
you still resolve the outcomes on the other dice. Thus, you can
still get a Wound (or not) and have an Adventure (or not).
Some cards (Adventures, Events, Mysteries) require you to
Fight a Beast but only show the Beast’s strength. In such cases,
you should only compare the Beast’s strength to the current
Weapon level; if the Weapon level is lower than the Beast’s
strength, the player who is Fighting a Beast gets 1 Wound for
each missing Weapon level.
Beast’s Weapon level
strength
decrease
Nothing happens
Example: While Building, you roll
, so your Character
gets 1 Wound, you do not get to build what you wanted to build but you
get 2 Determination tokens instead, and you draw an Adventure card.
Note: When gathering, if an Adventure card says that you get 1 more
resource cube than you wanted to gather, you still get this 1 resource
cube, even if your Action was unsuccessful.
Gained furs
It is recommended that you resolve dice rolls in the following
order: Wound die, Success die, Adventure die.
Additional effect
resolved after
the fight
3. Building
When you build a Shelter, discard the required
resources, turn the Camp token Shelter side up. The
Island tile where you build the Shelter becomes your Camp tile.
Once you have built the Shelter, you cannot lose it, and as
such you do not have to build it again.
To indicate that you have built a Shelter, place a black
marker on the Shelter space, as well as additional black
markers on the topmost spaces of the Roof level track and
the Palisade level track on the main board (next to the
appropriate icon; this can be treated as level 0).
To build a Roof or a Palisade, you must have already built
a Shelter, or your Camp must be located on an Island tile
with a Shelter (see Exploration, below).
Each time you build a Roof, a Palisade or Weapons,
discard the required resources and increase the respective
10
level by adjusting the appropriate marker(s) on the main
board. Roof, Palisade and Weapon levels are not limited.
When you build an Item from an Invention card, discard
the required resources and place the Invention card in the
Future Resources space (it will only be available after all
Actions have been resolved).
If a player builds the Item from the Invention card located
on his Character’s card, he also gets 2 Determination
tokens, which he puts in his own supply, and places the
Invention card in the Future Resources space (it will only
be available after all Actions have been resolved).
At the end of the Action phase, take the Item cards from
the Future Resources space, apply any additional effects,
and finally place the cards in the appropriate spaces on the
board, Item side up.
If a player builds an Item from the Scenario card, he marks
it with a black marker (except where noted otherwise). The
players should remember to apply the additional effect of
this Item at the end of Action phase since that Invention
is only depicted on the Scenario card, and it cannot be
moved to the main board.
If a Beast card icon is shown, shuffle one Beast card into
the Hunting deck. If a Mystery icon is shown, check its
meaning on the Scenario card.
Draw the indicated number of Discovery tokens. Place
them in the Future Resources space face up (they will only
be available after all Actions have been resolved).
Some Island tiles provide a Shelter (Tent icon). However,
this does not mean you now have a player-built Shelter; as
such, do not mark the applicable spot on the main board
(nor turn the Camp token upside down to the Shelter side)
unless you have built a Shelter using the Build Action.
Having a Shelter is important during the Night phase.
Example: The player draws an Island tile and places it on the
selected space of the Island. The terrain type of the tile is Plains,
which is the first tile of this terrain type to be discovered
this game, so the player marks the Invention cards
“Basket”, “Cure”, and “Rope” (these Inventions
can now be built into Items). A Beast card icon is
shown on the tile, so the player shuffles one Beast
card into the Hunting deck. Finally, he draws 2
Discovery tokens (as depicted on the tile), and puts
them face-up in the Future Resources space.
4. Gathering Resources
When you gather resources - take the appropriate
resources from the supply near the main board, and
put them in the Future Resources space (they will only be
available after all Actions have been resolved).
You can only gather 1 resource from each respective
source on an Island tile, but this can be modified by the
effects of some Items, Adventures, Events, etc.
Once every Action has been resolved, you can keep
Discovery tokens for later use. You will see that food spoils
during the Night phase (for more details see: 6. Night
phase), so any tokens representing food will be lost at that time.
Discovery tokens are discarded after use.
6. Arranging the Camp
The player taking this Action gains 2 Determination
tokens and places them in his own supply. He also
increases the Morale level by 1 on the main board (this
Action differs in 4-player games, look at the Adjusting the
game chapter on page 14).
If the Morale level is at the highest level, the player
only gains Determination tokens and does not adjust the
Morale level.
5. Exploration
Beast card icon
Source of food
Source of wood
7. Rest
The Resting player’s Character heals 1 Wound by
moving his Wound marker one space to the left on
his Character’s life track.
8. After all Actions are completed:
- player pawns are returned to their owners;
- additional pawns are either discarded or returned onto
the cards from which they came;
- move all the resources and tokens from the Future
Resources space to the Available Resources space (they are
now available to players);
- take all the Invention cards laying in the Future Resources
space, apply any additional effects, and place those cards in
the appropriate spaces on the board, Item side up.
Terrain type
Shelter
Discovery token
Mystery icon
If the exploration action was successful, draw the top
Island tile from the face down stack and place it face up
in the Island space you selected to explore during the
planning phase.
Look at the terrain type, and mark with a black marker
all the Invention cards with this terrain type in their
requirements field.
11
Example: Players have just rolled the Rain die and the
outcome is 2 Rainy Clouds. There is also 1 Winter Cloud
token located in the Weather space. Players have a Roof
level of 1 and the following resources: 3 wood and 1 food.
First of all, the players discard 1 wood because of the
Winter Cloud. The overall number of clouds is 3 and
the Roof level is only 1; the players are missing 2 levels
to protect themselves from the Weather. Therefore, they
discard 1 wood and 1 food for one missing Roof level. For
the second missing level, they discard their last wood left
and each player gets 1 wound because they cannot discard
the required 1 food.
Finally, they discard the token in the Weather space.
5. Weather phase
During this phase, players have to face the harsh weather
conditions of the island. In order to know the weather
conditions, they must roll Weather dice.
Look at the Scenario card to check which Weather dice
you should roll in the current round.
The number of dice to roll varies during the game and
depends on the Scenario and round number.
For example, in Scenario 1:
in rounds 1-3: roll no Weather dice
in rounds 4-6: roll the Rain die
in rounds 7-12: roll the Rain, Winter and Hungry Animals dice
The Hungry Animals die shows some other effects that
players must face:
There are 3 different Weather dice:
Rain die, Winter die, Hungry Animals die.
Discard 1 food.
Additionally, always check the Weather space on the
main board to see if there are any tokens located there
that modify the results (these can occur after an Event
or Adventure card). Those tokens should be added to the
outcome of the Weather dice roll. After applying the effect
of any tokens in the Weather space, discard those tokens.
If you do not roll any Weather dice, only the weather
depicted on the tokens (if any) applies.
Rainy Cloud
token
Winter Cloud
token
If you cannot resolve the effect of a roll, each player gets
a certain number of Wounds.
For example:
- if you have to decrease the Palisade level, but it is already on 0,
then everyone gets 1 Wound.
- if players have to Fight a Beast (with a strength of 3) and the
Weapon level is lower than 3, each player gets 1 Wound for every
missing level. (As such, players must follow the Unfulfilled Demand
rule, as described in the Additional Rules chapter.)
Storm
token
The Rain die and the Winter die both include 2 types of
clouds (the same that are shown on the tokens):
Rainy Cloud
If you must roll the Hungry Animals die because of
an Event or Adventure card and the Scenario card also
indicates that you have to roll the same die, just roll it once.
Winter Cloud
Facing the weather
First, add up the total number of Winter Clouds (on dice
and/or tokens) you must face, and discard 1 wood for each
Winter Cloud, regardless of the current Roof level (this
represents the fact that it was a cold night and you had to
use more wood to heat the camp).
Then, compare the total number of all Clouds (both Rain
and Winter Clouds from dice and/or tokens) to the current
Roof level. The Roof level indicates the number of Clouds
you are protected from.
If there are more Clouds than your current Roof level,
discard 1 food and 1 wood for each Cloud that you are not
protected from (you had to use it to stay warm and healthy
during the bad weather).
For every resource that cannot be discarded, each player
receives 1 wound (according to general rule of Unfulfilled
Demand, see Additional Rules chapter, page 13).
Decrease the Fight a Beast that
current Palisade has a strength
level by 1.
of 3.
Storm token
Resolve the Storm after any other effects.
The Storm decreases the Palisade level by 1. If you cannot
reduce it, each player gets 1 wound.
Reminder: At the end of the Weather phase, discard all
tokens that are located in the Weather space.
12
6. Night phase
of wine” or a
token, they can only use it during the
Night phase (but at any time during that phase).
GAME END
The game can end in 3 ways:
1. Players win immediately if they fulfill the Scenario
goal within the number of rounds available (unless stated
otherwise in the Scenario rules);
2. Players lose immediately when one of the players’
Character dies;
3. Players lose when the last round ends and they have not
fulfilled the Scenario goal.
1. During the Night phase, every player needs to eat.
Discard 1 food per player.
If you do not have enough food for everyone, then decide
which player(s) do not get to eat – each player that does not
eat gets 2 Wounds.
2. During the Night phase, players can decide if they want
their Camp to stay on the Island tile it currently occupies or
move it to an adjacent tile. Remember that the the Camp’s
location will impact the next round’s Production phase
and which tiles/spaces will be adjacent for the purpose of
Gathering Resources and Exploration.
ADDITIONAL RULES
Priority
In case of a conflict, the Scenario rules modify and should
have priority over the general rules.
Moving the Camp
If the players have built a Shelter and want to move their Camp
to an adjacent Island tile, they must decrease by half both their
Roof and Palisade levels (the amount lost is rounded down). For
example, the players have a level 2 Roof and a level 1 Palisade. If
they move their Camp with Shelter to an adjacent Island tile, then
they have to decrease the Roof level by 1, but the Palisade level
stays the same since half of 1 rounded down equals 0.
Except as set forth below, if players have not built a Shelter yet,
they can move their Camp without any consequences. If they move
it to an Island tile with a Shelter, it does not mean that they have
built a Shelter: i.e. do not turn the Camp token Shelter side up.
If players have not built a Shelter yet, but they built a Roof and/
or a Palisade (if the Island tile had a Shelter), then they lose both
the Roof and the Palisade if they move their camp to another tile
(decrease both levels to 0).
When you move the Camp, discard the Shortcut token from
the Island tile it was on and turn the Shortcut card back to its
Invention side. If you want to use it again in a future round, it will
have to be built again.
If there are any +1 resource tokens (as an effect of a built Item) on
the Island tile the Camp was on (
,
), you can move it with
the Camp, but pay attention to the One token only rule (only one
token of each type per spot, see page 14 for more information.).
Unfulfilled demand
When a player has to resolve an effect due to any type of
card (Event, Adventure, Mystery, etc.) and he is unable to
meet the requirements, he receives one or more Wounds.
Example:
- if a player has to discard something (wood, food, Determination
tokens, etc.) and he does not have it, he receives 1 Wound for each
resource/token he could not discard,
- if a player Fights a Beast and the Weapon level is lower than
the Beast’s strength, the player receives 1 Wound for each missing
Weapon level.
When the effect of a card or a die roll affects all players and
they cannot resolve it, each of them receives 1 Wound for
each requested resource/token they were not able to provide.
Example:
- if the players have to decrease the Roof, the Palisade or the
Weapon level by 1 but that level is already at 0, then each player
receives 1 Wound.
- if the players have to cover a particular source (i.e. wood) with a
black marker and there are no sources of wood to cover, each player
receives 1 Wound.
3. If the players have not built a Shelter (and their Camp
is not located on an Island tile with a Shelter), each player
gets 1 wound for sleeping in the open air.
4. Unless you have nonperishable food or the “Cellar”
Item or a Treasure that allows you to store food (“Boxes”
or “Barrel”), all remaining food in the Available Resources
space rots, and you must discard it.
Other resources stay in the Available Resources space for
the next round.
5. Remove the black markers from each Character card. (since
they indicate which Character skills were used in the current
round). Move the round marker on the Scenario Card to the
next round and give the First Player token to the next player
in clockwise order. You are ready to start the next round.
If players have an opportunity to Heal (because of any
tokens or card effects), they can only do it during the Night
phase (except for the Rest Action and the Cook’s special
skill). For example, if players have the Treasure card “Bottle
Exception:
- Some cards show effects that must only be resolved if they
are possible. Thus, if it is impossible to apply such an effect,
nothing happens.
Example: The Event card “Insects” requires
players to discard 1 wood, but only if possible. If
players do not have any wood, the Event cannot
be resolved, and therefore nothing happens:
the players do not receive any Wounds in this
type of situation.
- If you have to increase/decrease Morale
and it is already on the highest/lowest
level, nothing happens.

IF POSSIBLE: Discard

One token only
There can only be one token of each type on each Island
tile/space, Action field, Weather/Night space, etc.
First player decides how to use him. He can be assigned to
take each type of Action:
- as a single pawn
- as a pawn taking the Action with another additional pawn
(for example, the extra pawn from the Map)
- as an additional pawn along with a player’s pawn.
Example:
- if a Reroll token is already on the Building Action field and
another card effect tells you to put another Reroll token on the
Building Action field, you would ignore this second effect, because
there cannot be two of the same tokens on the same field;
- if a +1 food token is on an Island tile, you cannot place another
token of the same type on the same Island tile, etc.
Important : In such cases, it does not mean that players cannot
fulfill the game’s demand - the demand has already been fulfilled
and players do not get any Wounds.
Remember!
Except for Friday’s special rules described below, if you
assign a player’s pawn and Friday’s pawn to the same
Action, Friday is always treated as an additional pawn in
such cases.
Friday’s special rules:
When Friday takes an Action, resolve it as if it was a
player taking the Action, with the following exception: if
you assign Friday as a single pawn to the Build, Gather
Resources or Explore Action, one of the players has to roll
the Action dice for Friday. If you roll an Adventure on the
Adventure die, do not draw an Adventure card. Friday does
not resolve an Adventure card but gets 1 Wound instead.
Personal Determination
Players cannot share Determination tokens with each other.
Discarding Invention cards
When you are asked to discard an Invention card, simply
shuffle it back into the Inventions deck. Note that the
Carpenter’s A new idea skill does not follow this rule.
Friday is not a player, therefore:
- he cannot be the First Player,
- if he dies, players can still win,
- he is not affected by weather,
- he does not have to eat in the Night phase,
- he does not need Shelter in the Night phase,
- if an Event, Adventure, Threat effect, etc. results in players
having to discard something or getting a Wound, this does
not concern Friday.
ADJUSTING THE GAME
4-player game
When there are 4 players, take the special “Arranging
the Camp” card and place it on the board to cover the
corresponding space.
If Friday gets any Determination tokens, he can use them
to reroll any one die once per Action.
Easier game
If you think that a Scenario is too difficult to accomplish,
you can adjust the game for your needs in various ways:
A) You can play with the Dog. Take the Dog card and the
purple pawn, and place it near the main board. The Dog
acts as an additional pawn which players can use only for
Hunting or Exploration Actions. The Dog can only be
used for supporting other player’s pawns. It is especially
recommended in 3-player games.
Each time a player takes the Arranging the Camp Action,
he either gets 2 Determination tokens or increases the
Morale level by 1 on the main board.
2-player game
Players randomly draw a Character card out of only the
following three: Carpenter, Cook and Explorer.
When there are only 2 players, they have an additional
Character – Friday. Take the Friday card and the white
pawn, and place it near the main board. Take a Wound
marker and put it on the leftmost field of Friday’s life track.
Dog
Friday
B) You can play with Friday (see rules for Friday, above).
C) You can draw more Starting Items (for example, draw 3
or 4 instead of just 2).
Friday is represented by a special white pawn and the
14
D) While preparing the Event deck (step 16 of the setup),
you can take fewer Event cards with a Book icon and more
cards with an Adventure icon instead. For example: if you
need 6 cards with a Book icon and 6 with an Adventure
icon, you can instead select 4 cards with a Book icon and 8
with an Adventure icon.
Note!
In the first Scenario, this would make the game harder.
Character’s skills:
Remember!
Each skill can be used at any time, only by its character,
and only once per round.
Carpenter
Economical construction
Discard 2 Determination tokens to spend 1 less wood
during one Action of any type. For example: if you need 3
wood to build Shelter, the Carpenter can build it with only 2
wood. If the Threat Action requires 1 wood, the Carpenter
can take this Action without discarding any wood.
Harder game
If you are experienced players and believe that a Scenario
is too easy for you, then you can adjust the game to be more
challenging by:
A) playing with only 1 Starting Item, or none,
B) while preparing the Event deck (step 16 of the setup), use
more Event cards with a Book icon and fewer cards with an
Adventure icon. For example: if you need 6 cards with a
Book icon and 6 an Adventure icon, you could play with
8 cards with a Book icon and 4 with an Adventure icon.
Note! In the first Scenario, this would make the game
easier.
C) playing without the Dog (only in a 3-player game)
Craftsmanship
Discard 2 Determination tokens to reroll any brown
Action die. Note! You cannot use the Determination
tokens gained from an unsuccessful die roll to reroll that
die which gave you those Determination tokens.
A new idea
Discard 3 Determination tokens to draw 5 Invention
cards from Invention deck, and choose 1 of them (place
it Invention side up on the appropriate space on the main
board). Put the remaining 4 cards aside in a face down pile,
creating a discarded Inventions pile. When there are no
more cards in the Invention deck, reshuffle any discarded
Invention cards to create a new deck.
Random Wreckage cards
During the setup (step 17 of setup) you can draw
a random Wreckage card.
Solo variant
Apply all the standard rules with the following changes:
- Randomly draw a Character card out of only the following
three: Carpenter, Cook and Explorer.
- Take Friday and the Dog (as described above).
- When you build a Shelter, Roof or Palisade, you have to
pay the same cost as in a 2-player game.
- You are always the First Player.
- At the beginning of the Morale phase – increase the
Morale level by 1 (because you’re happy to still be alive)
and then resolve it.
Handyman
Discard 3 Determination tokens to get an additional
(brown) pawn that can only be used for the Building
Action. This pawn should be discarded after the Action is
completed.
Cook
Grandma’s recipe
Discard 2 Determination tokens to spend 1 food to heal
2 wounds (of any player including himself, he can even
heal 1 wound of two different players).
SYMBOLS AND THEIR EFFECTS
Scrounger
Discard 2 Determination tokens to reroll any gray Action
die. Note! You cannot use the Determination tokens gained
from an unsuccessful die roll to reroll that die which gave
you those Determination tokens.

Resources space at the beginning of the next round (therefore
other players cannot use them during the Weather and
Night phase of this round). Although this player will not be
affected by the Weather, he will get a Wound for sleeping in
the open air (unless he explored an Island tile with a Shelter
during his Action). He must still eat in the Night phase by
discarding one food, if he gathered any during his Action.
Otherwise, he gets 2 additional Wounds.
Drawing Mystery Cards – The Mystery deck consists
of several different types of Mysteries. When you have to
resolve a specific type of Mystery, continue drawing cards
from the deck until you get one with the indicated type
of Mystery (ignore the rest). Once it is resolved, you can
either decide to stop drawing cards, or if you like, you can
continue to draw more cards, again ignoring them until
you reach one of the specific type to be resolved. At the end,
Reconnaissance
Discard 2 Determination tokens to draw 3 Island tiles
from the stack, look at them, and choose 1. Shuffle the other
two into the stack and place the chosen one at the top.
Motivational Speech
Discard 3 Determination tokens to increase the Morale
level by 1.
Scouting
Discard 3 Determination tokens to draw 2 Discovery
tokens, choose 1, place it in the Available resources space,
and discard the other (do not shuffle it back into the stack).
shuffle all ignored Mystery cards back into the Mystery deck and
discard those that you resolved (unless stated otherwise).
Soldier
Example: You have to draw 3 Mystery Cards, but only resolve
1 Monster and 2 Treasures. You draw the first Mystery card – It’s
a Trap... so you ignore it. The second card is a Treasure, so you
resolve it. Having resolved 1 Mystery card, you can now decide to:
(a) stop drawing cards, or (b) continue until you draw and resolve a
Monster/Treasure. You decide to continue. The third card is another
Trap, so you ignore it. The fourth card is a Monster, which you also
have to resolve. After that, you can decide to stop drawing, but the
only card left to resolve is a Treasure, meaning that you can draw
Mystery cards until you find a Treasure and ignore everything else.
Tracking
Discard 2 Determination tokens to look at the top card
of the Hunting deck and either put it back on top or at the
bottom of the deck.
Defense plan
Discard 2 Determination tokens to increase the Palisade
or the Weapon level by 1.
Frenzy
Discard 3 Determination tokens to temporarily add +3
to the Weapon level for the Action he takes.
The Hunt
Discard 4 Determination tokens to take the top Beast
card from the Beast deck and put it on top of the Hunting
deck, without looking at the card.
CARDS AND THEIR EFFECTS
Some cards use keywords to describe certain actions:
DECIDE (mostly used on Adventure cards) - Players
always have the choice described on the card. It is usually
a choice between discarding the Adventure card without
any effect, or getting some benefits but also facing some
consequences later (i.e. shuffling the Adventure card into
the Event deck and resolving some negative effect if it is
drawn in a future round).
IF POSSIBLE – Resolve the described effect only if it is
possible. If you cannot (for example: you have to discard a
resource that you do not have), nothing happens. The Rule
of Unfulfilled Demand does not apply in this case.
Effects introduced by cards
Night phase outside of the Camp – When a player spends
the Night outside of the Camp, he keeps everything he
acquired during his Actions (resources, tokens, cards, etc.)
in his own supply and only puts those items in the Available
16
Exhausted source – An exhausted source does not
provide any resources during the Production phase or
with the Gathering Resources Action. However, if there’s
a +1 resource token (
,
) located on the exhausted
source, you still get that 1 resource.
Inaccessible Island tile – When an Island tile becomes
inaccessible (due to an Event or otherwise), turn it face
down and remove all tokens and markers from that tile. You
cannot move your Camp to that tile and you cannot take
any Actions on that tile, including an Exploration Action.
Treat the terrain type of this tile as unexplored (see below).
Unexplored terrain type – If an Island tile contains a
terrain type that is the only one of its type on the board, and
it becomes unexplored, you then lose access to that terrain
type and you cannot build Items that require it. Remove the
applicable marker(s), as needed, from any Invention cards
until such a terrain type is found on a new Island tile (or
a particular Threat Action is taken to regain access to it).
You do not lose any previously built Items that required this
terrain type. For example, if you have discovered only one
Island tile with mountains and that tile becomes unexplored,
you cannot build the Knife or Fire (if you haven’t already)
until you discover a new Island tile with mountains.
Turning Items to Invention side – When you turn an Item
back to its Invention side, it means that you lose this Item. You
will have to build it again, if you still need it. If such an Item
was required for building another Item or taking a specific
Threat Action, you cannot do it now. For example, if you lose
the Map, you cannot build the Shortcut (because it requires
the Map); if you lose the Shovel and a Threat Action requires
it, you cannot take that Action.
If the Item had an additional effect, you should cancel it,
if possible.
Cellar – Allows you to store all of your food, so it does not
rot during the Night phase.
Corral – When you build it, you can cover with a black
For example:
- building “Bricks” gives you +1 to the Palisade level, so if you lose
them, decrease the Palisade level by 1, unless it is already on level 0,
in which case nothing happens,
- if you had the “Shortcut” and lose it, take the Shortcut token off
the Island tile,
- if you had the “Map” and lose it, you cannot use the additional
pawn for Exploration this round (unless it is already in use, in
which case, you cannot use it starting next round).
on an Island tile adjacent to the
marker 1 food source
tile where your Camp is located and put a +1 food token
( ) on the tile where your Camp is located.
Cure – Gives you a Cure for the rest of the game (or until
you lose it).
Dam – Gives players 2 nonperishable food.
Diary – During the Morale phase, the First player gets
1 more Determination token (or loses 1 fewer).
Drums – During the Morale phase, the First player gets
2 more Determination tokens (or loses 2 fewer).
Fire – Increases the Palisade level by 1 and is required for
building certain other Items.
Fireplace – Allows you to heal: during the Night phase you
can discard 1 food to heal 2 Wounds (you can heal 2 wounds
from 1 player or 1 wound from 2 different players).
Furnace – Lets you ignore 1 Winter cloud during the
Weather phase
Knife - Increases the Weapon level by 1 and is required for
building certain other Items.
Lantern - Gives players 1 additional brown pawn for the
Building Action. It is recommended to keep that pawn on
this card when it is not in use.
Map – Gives you a Map (required for building certain other
Items) and 1 additional green pawn for the Exploration
Action. It is recommended to keep that pawn on this card
when it is not in use.
Moat- Increases the Palisade level by 2.
Pit – Roll the brown Wound die during Production phase
and if you roll a Wound, you gain 2 additional food.
Pot – Gives you a Pot (required for using certain Discovery
tokens) and it allows you to heal: during the Night phase,
you can discard 1 food to heal 1 Wound.
Raft – Gives players 1 additional pawn for either the Gathering
Resources or the Exploration Action. It is recommended to
keep that pawn on this card when is not in use.
Rope – Required for building certain other Items.
Sack – If you are succesful during a Gathering Resources
Action, you gain 1 additional resource cube of the type you
wanted to gather. The Sack can be used for only 1 Action
per round. It can be used with the Basket.
Shield – Gives players 1 additional red pawn for the
Hunting Action. It is recommended to keep that pawn on
this card when it is not in use.
Shortcut – Provides a Shortcut token which you place on an
Island tile adjacent to the tile where your Camp is located.
During the Production phase of the following rounds, you
gain 1 resource that is available on the tile with the Shortcut.
This source is still limited to one resource per turn.
Shovel - Required for building certain other Items.
Sling – Increases the Weapon level by 2.
Snare – When you build it, you can place a +1 food token
(
) on the Island tile where your Camp is located.
Spear – Increases the Weapon level by 3.
Wall – Increases the Palisade level by 2.
Fighting a Beast (as an Event effect) – When you draw
a card from Event deck that requires you to Fight a Beast,
the First Player is the one who fights it and only he gets
potential Wounds resulting from this fight.
Resolving the effect of an Event once again – Some
Event effects have very long description that did not fit in
the Threat effect space; these may state “resolve it again”.
Remember that this only means to apply the effect one
more time and then discard the card; you do not place it
back on the Threat Action field.
Temporarily increased Weapon level - If any card, token,
or other effect temporarily increases your Weapon level,
do not adjust the marker on the Weapon level track. Such
temporary increases only last for the Action that player
takes. If a player has to decrease the Weapon level during
the same Action, he normally marks it on the Weapon level
track and can even get Wounds if his permanent Weapon
level is lower than the number to decrease.
Shuffling into Event deck – This always refer to the card
it is written on.
Invention/Item Cards
The following rules apply to the various items:
1 - An Item may only built once, unless lost or otherwise
noted on the Scenario card.
2 - Once built, an Item is kept for the rest of the game.
3 - If the Item side shows only a picture (e.g. “Dam”), you
get its benefit only when you build it. It can also be used
to acquire other Inventions (e.g. “Shovel”), or it is an Item
you may only use once per round (e.g. “Fireplace”).
Here is a brief description of the various Items:
Basket – If you are successful during a Gathering Resources
Action, you gain 1 additional resource cube of the type you
wanted to gather. The Basket can be used for only 1 Action
per round. Can be used with the Sack.
Bed – Each time a player takes the Rest Action, he gets
1 Determination token and heals 2 Wounds instead of
healing just 1 Wound. Can be used with the Hammock.
Belts – Gives players 1 additional grey pawn for the
Gathering Resources Action. It is recommended to keep
that pawn on this card when it is not in use.
Bow – Increases the Weapon level by 3.
Bricks – Increases the Palisade level by 1 and is required
for building certain other Items.

Lifeboat - If any other winning conditions are met and
you build a Lifeboat, you win.
Example of a Scenario card

your Adventure with the first scenario and play them in order.

2. Plot
3. Number of rounds played
4. Weather conditions (Weather dice to roll) in the
corresponding rounds
5. Scenario Goal which players must achieve in order to

Each time you draw an Event card with a Book icon,
apply the effect described here.
8. Totem icon meaning
Each time you explore an Island tile with a Totem icon,
check its meaning here. Sometimes it is an instant effect,
while in some Scenarios it gives players an opportunity
to take a certain Action on the Island tile where this
Totem is.
9. Setup changes
10. Other special rules which you should consider while
playing this particular Scenario.
11. 2 Inventions (all special scenario Inventions are

that can be taken by the players.
