When the Conquistadores made their way into the islands of the Caribbean and around South and Central America, there were plenty of dangers among the palm trees. The Natives certainly weren’t always interested in having their riches plundered. There were storms that could wipe out entire islands. Then, of course, there were the ancient gods. Facing all these trials is what you’ll be doing in Isles of Terror, a new board game from Voodoo Games that’s up on Kickstarter now.
About the game:
