I never had a copy of Fireball Island when I was a kid. However, I do certainly remember the commercials for it. It did always look like fun. Well, Restoration Games has gotten a hold of it and has upgraded basically everything about the game. They’re up on Kickstarter looking to get this new edition of Fireball Island created. And, considering the pledge totals, it’s gonna happen.
From the campaign:
When we started Restoration Games, we asked you to tell us which games to bring back. The number one request, by far, was Fireball Island. After more than a year of hard work, we are thrilled to announce: Fireball Island is back!
Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-Kar improves on the art, components, and game play of the original. If you loved the game as a child, you’ll see we turned that “delightful chaos” up to the max. If you never played it before, you’ll appreciate it as a fun, exciting game for kids, families, and gamers alike.
The campaign is closing in on 3x funded with still 29 days left to go.
