About This Game

In the most distant reaches of the world, magic still exists, embodied by spirits of the land, of the sky, and of every natural thing. As the great powers of Europe stretch their colonial empires further and further, they will inevitably lay claim to a place where spirits still hold power - and when they do, the land itself will fight back alongside the islanders who live there.



Spirit Island is a cooperative settler-destruction strategy game designed by R. Eric Reuss and set in an alternate-history world around A.D. 1700. Players become different Spirits of the land, each with their own unique elemental powers, forced to defend their island home from colonizing Invaders spreading blight and destruction. Your Spirits work with the native Dahan to increase your power and drive the invading colonists from your island in this strategic area-control game.

In Spirit Island, players choose between 1-4 Spirits to control. The number of Spirits determines the size of the island:

Spirit Island includes all of the content from the award-winning tabletop game:

  • 8 different Spirits, each with 4 Power cards unique to that Spirit
  • 36 Minor Power cards that enhance the abilities of your Spirits
  • 22 Major Power cards with more powerful effects to devastate the Invaders
  • A modular island, made up of 4 balanced island boards, for a variety of layouts
  • Thematic island boards that reflect the canonical island and provide a new challenge
  • 3 multi-tier Adversaries (specific Invaders) for play variety and fine-tuned challenge: Brandenburg-Prussia, England, and Sweden
  • 4 optional Scenarios for even more play variety
  • 15 Invader cards driving a distinctive Invader expansion system
  • 2 Blight cards with challenging effects as the Invaders blight the Island
  • 15 Fear cards with beneficial effects, earned as you terrify the Invaders

Every rule & interaction in the game has been carefully adapted and thoroughly tested by expert Spirit Island players, as well as the designer himself. If you’re wondering how a certain situation works in Spirit Island, this game is the ultimate rules lawyer!
