Board game review & gameplay of: Spirit Island

  • 8/10
  • 13+
  • 1-4 players
  • 90-120 minutes


🏝️In Spirit Island players all control their own native spirit, protecting the island of the colonists! They each come with their own player mat, with own setup and playerpowers.

🏝️The game requires players to work together to drive out the invaders before they overwhelm the island. Each spirit has unique abilities, allowing for a wide range of playstyles and strategies.

🏝️The game is won by removing all of the invaders from the island, but the challenge increases as the invaders become stronger and more numerous.


Overall, I highly recommend this game to anyone looking for a strategic coop game. But, it is a very thinky one, in which you need to take into account many options if you play with multiple players or spirits!

👍The game offers a depth of strategy and complexity that I really enjoy, and the cooperative nature of the game

👍The artwork and theme are both really well-done and help to immerse players in the game’s world.

👍I also appreciate the high degree of replayability that Spirit Island offers, with so many different spirits, adversaries, and gameplay options to choose from, there truly is a lot of content in the box!

➖This game is a bit prone to getting a bit AP. Playing solo is a bit better because you are not overthinking every option of the other spirits, only your own.


To play solo you only play with one spirit (or more if you wish) and on one islandpart. It is a very nice puzzle, incredibly well sooted for solo games, can highly recommend it.
