Wonderful game!
October 13, 2000

This game is fun, fast and interesting! It's totally unique. You need to have bidding skills, psychological skills and plenty of guts to play this cool game! It keeps you on the edge of your seat till the end... it really sucks you up into it. Get it, people!

Very Entertaining
May 06, 2002

It's always refreshing to pick up a little game that doesn't cost a lot, but manages to keep you occupied for a long, long time. Shipwrecked is one of those games. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but, trust me, this one will grab your attention fast once you start playing.

For a little game, the components are very nice. The artwork is somewhat comical, and the cards are thick and high quality.

Shipwrecked is a bidding game - pure and simple. You try to outguess and outbluff your opponents to secure particular types of resources. The bidding mechanic is done with different cards - each card signals a particular event in the bid - but you only have so many of each type of card so decisions must be made carefully. It would be wrong to call this a strategy game so much as it's a test to see how well you can anticipate the moves of the other players. Keep your poker faces on - the more players, the tighter this game gets.

My only complaint is that the rules are a bit confusing in places. Initially there is a lot to remember - but once you walk through it a few times the game flows nicely. Also, I'd love to see this game for as many as six or eight players. That could get very interesting.

You certainly get more than your money's worth from Shipwrecked.

 
 
 
 
 
Good, but not "Out of the Box"
February 11, 2001

Shipwrecked is a good blind bidding game like Hol's der Geier and the long-lost Raj.

There's a little more strategy with Shipwrecked but it's also tougher to learn because of the extra complications. Experienced gamers can figure it out quickly but the average party guest might be scared away. Unlike Raj and Hol's der Geier, it takes more than a minute to teach.

Out of the Box's other games live up to their name but this one might send your guests running for Scattergories.
