Forbidden Desert is a good gateway game into the co-op gaming universe. The game could easily be played with families and older kids (maybe, 9-10?) and has enough substance where adults and gamers can quite happily play it.
The game has a nice cohesive theme, interesting mechanics and doesn’t suffer from a fixed board layout, so it has solid replayability.
Things often get tense in later game when it comes down to the wire, co-operation and co-ordination is must!
The game may be a bit too simplistic for some, or may hit the perfect balance for lighter gamers; either way, it’s one you can easily pull out to play with non-gamers.
