I am always on the hunt for a new board game to play through, and Board Royale: The Island by Arvis Games Inc is a survival, turn-based card game that was proven extremely popular. I never got the chance to take a look into the game itself, and how it differs from other card games.

I really enjoy Survival games when I am playing video games and had never imagined a survival game as a card game. But given the incredible reviews, I would be silly to not look deeper into the game itself.

The first thing I learned: this is not a Sunday Zen game that I can play in my fluffy socks. This is a spiteful party game I must wear in my leather jacket!

Players are required to survive on an island for 2-6 players, and instead of working in harmony on this island in a cooperative manner, Board Royale requires players to eliminate your friends and become the last survivor on the island.

You will need to craft items and gather resources, but it is not as simple as just taking a player out. You will need to consider that it is a dog-eat-dog world on this island, and there are other players trying to win too! You are going to need to be devious, make deals with your enemies to ultimately betray them later to become the ultimate survivor.

The game can take anywhere between 30-60 minutes, depending on how quickly you can wipe out your friends on the island.

Due to the successes of the core game, there are also lots of expansions available too which I am excited to look at deeper. They include a NSFW Expansion Pack, Disaster Expansion Pack, Military Expansion Pack and Skills Expansion Pack - including plenty of weapons and tactics to take down your friends/foes in island filled madness.

I can anticipate this being an argumentative one on games night!
