Spirit Island Board Game Review - Gideon's Gaming
It offers a ton of fun, variety, and immense replay value. This is a game you need to have on your shelf, but beware, once it hits the table, it may never leave again.

What is the most popular game you refuse to try and why?
I had one game of Spirit Island at a meetup that was so marred by the atmosphere at the table that I have absolutely zero desire to play it again. I know it's not the game's fault but I can't get over that bias.
Amazing game for people who like its style
I have three games of this under my belt now, and a fair amount of exploring and thinking. This game has been a hit with everyone I have shared it with, but it's not for everyone.

- **Spirit Island**: Played 12 2-handed games with all 24 spirits at L3 difficulty adversaries with only 2 failures.

My favorites are the spirits that provide fresh approaches to getting major powers, namely Starlight, Fractured Days and Shifting Memory.
