Spirit Island Boardgame

Played Spirit Island this weekend and recommend playing it if given a chance.

The flavor of the game is a reverse Settlers of Catan, anti-colonalism. Players are spirits of an island trying to get the settlers to leave.

The mechanics start middle of the road difficulty but as the game progresses get really complicated.

My first play at about the midpoint had buffer overflow and had to play a turn on autopilot while I rebooted. The 2 experienced at the table warned me and the other newbie it was to be expected. We did end up kicking the colonizers out through fear and natural disasters.

We played it over Table Top Simulator, the mod had excellent scripting, no glitching but I think ti would play better in person as the table gets information dense as the game progresses.

Lots of fun.
