Spirit Island is a thematic co-operative game from Greater Than Games, which has been designed by E. Eric Reuss.
Players take on the roles of spirits, each with their own unique powers. The spirits have the sole duty of beating back the invaders' attempts to settle colonies, blight the island's natural beauty, and eradicate the indigenous Dahan.
Turns are taken simultaneously, with players spreading their influence and stockpiling energy to unleash swift and devastating attacks. This needs to be done before the invaders can establish their cities and ravage the land.
A game of Spirit Island is won if players completely eradicate the invaders. Alternatively, players can win the game by acquiring enough fear tokens to force the invaders into abandoning their plans. Players lose if the invaders deplete the pool of blight tokens, or if one spirit’s presence is completely removed from the island.
