Robinson Crusoe – review by The Board Game Family

Robinson Crusoe – review by The Board Game Family
Life sure isn’t easy on a deserted island. In fact, most of the time it can downright stink. But that isn’t to say there aren’t pleasures to be found. Such is the case with the Robinson Crusoe 2nd edition board game from Portal Games. It’s one of the hardest cooperative board games we’ve played. Yet it’s filled with so much adventuring theme and tough decisions, that we keep thinking about it long after we’ve played. It may seem like we’re on a deserted island kick this week because our last review, Hellapagos, is also a cooperative game with a deserted island theme. However, the two games are vastly different. Hellapagos is a quick game with social interaction where players are voted to perish or not fit on the escape rafts. While Robinson Crusoe is a deeper and longer adventure to explore, gather resources, make shelters, fight off beasts, withstand the bad weather, and generally survive ...

BTTS Archives – It better plays fast

BTTS Archives – It better plays fast
[I run this blog since July 2011. I’ve decided I will choose articles I like the most and republish them here to present them to all new board game fans that joined our hobby meanwhile! For all of you who already read the article, I hope, you will have a good time again with it! Today we go back to February 2013] In ‘my version’ of Robinson Crusoe setup for 4 players was: Take 2 Starting item cards and 2 No starting item cards. Shuffle them. Deal 1 card to each player. In that way players had fun since the very very beginning of the game – it was just like in those novels – they are on the beach and they are checking their pockets looking for anything valuable. Some of them have something, some of them nope. It didn’t make it to the final rules set. Why? Because it makes set up longer. ...

Robinson Crusoe Design Scenario Contest Winner

Robinson Crusoe Design Scenario Contest Winner
A few months ago we started the contest for the fan-created scenario. Since its release in 2012, Robinson Crusoe was lucky to have a ton of fan-created content. We encouraged players posting template files to make it easier for fans to build a scenario that looks just like the original one. We hoped for your creativity and man, we were not failed. There are so many amazing ideas on BGG. Last year Portal Games released a new edition of Robinson Crusoe and since then we increased promotion of the game. One of the ideas we had was to give shout out to all creative fans of the game. Hence, the contest. *** We received 12 entries. To be honest, we expected some poor ideas and good ones, we knew that it is going to be a crazy mix of different missions, some of which are poor and bad, some average, and we hoped that ...

Welcome to PORTAL GAMES

We are bookworms. Movie maniacs. Story addicts. We grew up reading Tolkien, Howard, Herbert, Dick, Lem… We were watching Willow, Blade Runner, Never Ending Story, Robin Hood…

And yet, we don’t write books… we don’t make movies. We don’t make those things, because we make games. We make games that tell stories.
