  • Rating: 8.5/10 from 4 users


    The Galápagos Islands are known worldwide as "The Enchanted Islands", a paradise of wildlife inhabited by species unique in the world, the same paradise that inspired Charles Darwin in his formulation of the Theory of Evolution — but any environmental change may disturb the delicate balance of the ecosystem that shelters these wonderful animals, putting their lives at risk!

    S.O.S. Galápagos is a board game in which players take on the role of ecological activists whose mission is to rescue animals whose lives are threatened by irresponsible human activity. In order to rescue animals at risk, players must make the best possible use of their resources, which are represented by action dice and helper tokens.

    The game lasts exactly twelve rounds, each of which is divided into five phases in this order:

    Phase A) Threat
    Phase B) Throwing the dice
    Phase C) Player actions
    Phase D) Resolving actions
    Phase E) Preparing the next round

    During a turn, a player can perform all the actions that their action dice and helper tokens allow. Through the use of both kinds of actions, players attempt to rescue animals at risk and to fight against environmental threats. At the end of the game, whoever has collected the highest number of rescue points will be declared chief rescuer and win.

    The future of the Galápagos Islands is in our hands: To work, rescuers!
