Welcome to Fireball Island! You may have heard stories. You may have visited when you were younger. Perhaps you even saw a fireball engulf a fellow traveler in a hellscape of horror that makes you afraid to close your eyes at night. Whatever the case, welcome back! Turns out that Vul-Kar didn't like having his gem stolen way back when, so there has been some volcanic upheaval, an explosion in our snake population, feral tigers, new types of trees bent on ending human life, and swarms of bees everywhere. But don't worry - we have top people working on it.
Start your day of adventure at the helipad. Be sure to sign the waiver, which legally obligates you to take snapshots across the island. You'll race down the many paths, avoiding hazards all the while. On the plus side, you get to keep all the treasure you find.
Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-Kar is a restoration of the classic 1986 game Fireball Island that features a unique 3D island and a host of marble mayhem. This new version boasts an island that is even bigger than the original (and yet fits in a smaller box) and more marbles. Simple card play replaces the random roll-and-move of the original, and the set collection for the treasures offers some interesting choices for players. Remember, you don't have to outrun the fireball - just the other players.

This is mostly exactly how I hoped it would be. Its a fantastic family game. It’s fabulous looking and full of lots of simple tactile fun. Its not deep, it’s not weighty, it’s just good laugh out loud good times. Admittedly not a game that will get played frequently but one that I’d be willing to play at anyone’s whim. I think my only reservation with the game is that it’s not as chaotic and full of mayhem as I anticipated. The falling marbles don’t create as much havoc as I thought they would. It’s so beautiful though on the table and it’s still quite enjoyable.
We have had sooo much fun playing this game, YES its a silly game. But all of our games have been super fun. Even people who don't like "Take That" type games, have had a good time. I highly recommend to everyone, but especially to families with kids. Very happy to have it in our collection.
Includes Explorer/Snakes, treasure chest cards, marble upgrades in box.
+Looks great+Simple rules+ Each game is different - Too few types of movement cards - Rulebook leaves me with too many questions
