"This is its own beast." ― Rahdo Runs Through 
ROBINSON CRUSOE: ESCAPE FROM DESPAIR ISLAND
ON KICKSTARTER 16TH JULY
Almost 300 years ago the story of Robinson Crusoe captured the drama of shipwreck and survival, hope and redemption. This dynamic new card game puts you directly into Crusoe’s shoes, survive cannibal attacks, pirates and nature. Imagine yourself there, wondering each day if it will be your last....Combining themes of hope, strength, and resiliency, this strategic, multi-layered game will test your skills in more ways than one, as you navigate through cannibal attacks, deadly storms, and your own inner turmoil. 

“...what really makes it stand out is this incredible sense of desperation and tension. You really do feel the pain and the fear of surviving on this desert island, whether you’re playing it with other players or whether you’re just playing it solo, because fate is so fickle." 
― Rahdo Runs Through
