We then tried out Bruno Faidutti's new big box game which is about exploring an island and trying to move the expedition to locations in which you have treasure cards and avoiding those locations where you have curse cards. Being able to gain extra treasure cards is a big advantage (especially if they're stolen from other players), so when Mark K decided on the very first turn both to steal my largest treasure card and give me an extra curse card, I could have easily worked out that I stood no chance in this game, particularly as no adventure cards to gain extra treasure ever turned up on my turn. That said, the game was quite fun but went on for too long. And no-one was surprised when Guy's score was far ahead of anyone else's, although Mark K did pick up a massive end-game score from his destiny card.
