SHG2002 Escape From Atlantis Survive 30th Anniversary edition Board Game Stronghold
An underwater volcano has erupted and the island of Atlantis is sinking into the sea! Unless the people of Atlantis escape before the volcano explodes, all the inhabitants are doomed! In this game you try to lead your people from the sinking central island of Atlantis to the safety of one of four islands nearby. Your people can get there by boat (if they find one) or by swimming but avoid the Sea Serpents, Whales, and Sharks! The player with the most survivor points wins.
Survive is a cutthroat game where players seek to evacuate their pieces from an island that is breaking up, while remembering where their highest-valued pieces are located to maximize their score.
An island made up of 40 hex-tiles is slowly sinking into the ocean (as the tiles are removed from the board). Each player controls ten people (valued from 1 to 6) that they try and move towards the safety of the surrounding islands before the main island finally blows up. Players can either swim or use boats to travel but must avoid sea serpents, whales and sharks on their way to safety.
Survive is very similar to Escape from Atlantis with some key differences.

I love the game because it’s so easy to explain, everyone has a great time and it’s so much fun – especially when you chomp other people’s meeples.
I could happily play 5 games in a row and often have. With one problem – I am so bad at it that the volcanic island it’s set on (Atlantis) will rise up from the ocean and freeze over before I win a game.
There are many reasons for this including…
1.I get so interested in the chomping that I lose track of where my best meeples are.
2.Other player’s seem to enjoy chomping me (this maybe related to the previous point).
3.I’ve angered the Survive! Gods so they control the dice rolls so any exposed meeples of my colour beat the odds and get eaten immediately.
And yet I still love the game and am addicted to it enough to think I’ll win it next time!
