Wow, no questions here, I just wanted to say thanks for Spirit Island - it's easily my favorite board game (I got into it because of people saying how it played like MtG) and sees a ton of play in my gaming group, we absolutely love it!

Spirit of the Island is a cozy farming-sim game heavily inspired by Stardew Valley with the nice twist of setting up your own shop and have tourists come and buy your goods. The game in it's current state is great but not perfect.

I had one game of Spirit Island at a meetup that was so marred by the atmosphere at the table that I have absolutely zero desire to play it again. I know it's not the game's fault but I can't get over that bias.
Spirit Island Board Game Review - Gideon's Gaming
It offers a ton of fun, variety, and immense replay value. This is a game you need to have on your shelf, but beware, once it hits the table, it may never leave again. Great blending of mechanics and themeFantastic Artwork and table presenceVery high in strategy and player choiceSatisfyingly complexMassive replay valueOptional Scenarios and Adversaries8 unique Spirits that play very differentlyGreat at any player count, including solo play

Nothing against them, but I am god awful at keeping numbers straight in my head and doing mental math so even if I like the game I end up showing down the game for other people/along for help a lot. If people are patient to play with me, I'll play but I tend to avoid those games by default. Even Spirit Island, which isn't bad I have to count up the elements on my cards a million times (luckily I found a handy app to help you track it).

I also won't try **Spirit Island**, because the wooden and plastic game components are ugly. Give me a deluxe edition with painted minis and actual huts that don't look like mushrooms and I'll buy it.

I have 17+ Hours and purchased the game after playing the Demo. It is cute and has a unique take on a tycoon/star dew/story of seasons genre. However, the price is a bit much for the content I received.During the 17 hours I only farmed, have chickens,cows and did some villager requests. All quests I...

One game that skates by on this is Spirit Island. The scenarios are cute but we literally never play them and the game has a strong enough core to work. Plus most variants and optional content is all inter compatible.

I recommend checking out Spirit Island, Mage Knight, Warp's Edge, or Renegade. All good games for this school of thought.
