Unforgiving is a very apt description of the board game...

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.

The new edition of the rules, I think based off the German version, is far clearer and exhaustive of situations. So if you bought this now new, you're in good shape for rules. The old version was a bit iffy, but few of the confusions could ruin a game.

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.
