Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island Review
The oft-told story of a marooned man left shipwrecked and abandoned on an island, far from home and with none but a dog and two cats for company as he languishes there for eight and twenty years. Beset by the isolation and the cannibals it was a harsh and unforgiving experience and one which, I imagine he would have not wanted to repeat unless it was to sell more books.
Still one of my favorite games, we play it periodically and it really is better than many of its peers. I actually disagree with your review a bit; I think this game is *very* editorial for the genre it's in, adventure game. It communicates a lot with a pretty simple euro worker placement structure. It wouldn't work if you didn't have *so few* workers, which really brings out the scarcity theme that's all over this game.
