TableTop Fun: Forbidden Desert

Designer: Matt Leacock
Publisher: Gamewright
From BoardGameGeek:
Gear up for a thrilling adventure to recover a legendary flying machine buried deep in the ruins of an ancient desert city. You'll need to coordinate with your teammates and use every available resource if you hope to survive the scorching heat and relentless sandstorm. Find the flying machine and escape before you all become permanent artifacts of the forbidden desert!
A step up from Forbidden Island, this lighter family game has you digging through the desert for "flying machine" parts. It is a co-operative game but you're having to manage your thirst level and exposure to the sun while dealing with the shifting sands. I consider this to have a little more depth than Forbidden Island but still light enough to be classified a filler. As with Island, the art is fantastic and the components are amazing. Highly recommend this one - especially for gamers just starting out in the hobby.
