Forbidden Desert: Cooperative Board Game

Forbidden Desert
Forbidden Desert

Get ready to take an adventure that may have not been exactly planned the way it begins…with a helicopter crash landing in the desert. Now, it is time for you and your crew to find water, survive the ever increasing sandstorm, and discover the pieces needed to assemble an ancient flying ship to get you out of there before you are buried in the sand forever.

Why it is good for 10 year olds:

  • encourages cooperative game play
  • encourages social skills for discussing plans – as one wrong decision can cost the crew everything
  • good for problem solving
  • allows for decision making
