Portal Dragon Announces Palm Island Card Game

If you know me, you know I’m a fan of easily-portable games that can just slide into your gaming backpack and go with you. Palm Island is just such a game. It even has a solo variant so you can play when nobody else is around. Portal Dragon will be bringing it to Kickstarter in a couple weeks and wanted you to all get hyped about it ahead of time.

From the announcement:

Palm Island is a portable game that you can take with you anywhere. Sitting, standing, waiting, riding, flying, relaxing, alone, together you can play Palm Island.

Using a deck transforming mechanic a player uses just 17 cards over 8 rounds to shape their island and overcome its unique challenges. Store resources to pay for upgrades and upgrade buildings to access new abilities. Each decision you make will alter your village from round to round. At the end of 8 rounds calculate your victory points.

While playing solo players can achieve feats by meeting specific criteria during their games. Once they have earned a feat it’s card can be used in all future games. Collect more feats for more abilities and score even more points

While playing with others you may play competitively racing to recruit valuable members for your village and gain more victory points than your opponents. Or play cooperatively working together to prepare for disasters that lurk on the horizon.

The game comes with 2 player decks, competitive cards, cooperative cards and solo feat cards. Multiple games can be combined to add even more players.

At Portal Dragon, we have a commitment to communication and quality. Palm Island is no exception. As a solo game that will see a lot of use, wear and tear we are starting with 300 GSM blue core cards with an early stretch upgrading the quality to 330 GSM black core cards. In addition, we are offering an all-weather version of the game with durable plastic cards so you can take your island anywhere.
