Let’s make one thing perfectly clear: The island is out to get you. Fireballs, of course. But there’s a whole lot more on the island that will have you running for your life. This smaller expansion introduces two new threats. The crouching tiger introduces a dexterity shot. Place it on the table next to the board, press down, and launch it towards your foes. The hidden bees make up for their smaller size with their swarming numbers. Put all the little yellow marbles into the beehive, pour them through Vul-Kar, and watch the mayhem ensue.

If you watched Saturday morning cartoons in the late 1980s, you remember the commercial: a hulking, black idol stands atop his island kingdom, ready to spit fireballs at any who would dare approach his prized jewel. Kids dressed in knock-off Indiana Jones outfits make a run for the treasure, exploring caves and saying things like, “I’m dog meat!” when a cartoon fireball rockets itself at their noggins. It was pure, vintage ’80s.
