In Survive: Escape from Atlantis, players do their best to evacuate their pieces from an island that is breaking up and sinking, while remembering where their highest-valued pieces are located to maximize their score.

An island made up of 40 hex-tiles is slowly sinking into the ocean (as the tiles are removed from the board). Each player controls ten people (valued from 1 to 6) that they move towards the safety of the surrounding islands before the main island finally blows up. Players can either swim or use boats to travel but must avoid sea serpents, whales and sharks on their way to safety (expansions with squid and dolphins also available). Because each player also controls these beasts, the game can be played nicely or in cutthroat fashion.

  • 2-4 Players (5-6 player expansion set available)
  • 45 Minutes
  • Ages 8+

  Light Boat-Chomping Fun for the Family

The island of Atlantis is sinking. Your goal is to get your people off the island to safety while dodging sharks, whales, and sea monsters. And use those creatures to slow or eat all of your opponents' people! A great game of diplomacy, planning and luck!
Very easy to learn, outrageous turns of fortune, great game production! Its all good here!
It can be a little cutthroat and some players can occasionally take a brutal beating. But it teaches good sportsmanship.
This would be one of my top picks for a easy to learn family game. A full five stars from me.
