I thought pandemic lite within the first few minutes of the video. A more interesting and kid friendly version of pandemic.

Actually this sounds like something that would appeal to a few of my friends who only ever want to play lighter games when we're chilling at somebody's house after a late night. I know Forbidden Island isn't very expensive, I might go pick this up tomorrow. Great review. Very helpful.

Interesting, but the "Waters Rise" card put off the sale for me. The card is almost completely identical to the dreaded epidemic cards for Pandemic, so it would really feel like I've just bought the same game twice.

I own and play both this and Pandemic, and the mechanics are strikingly similar. Almost unforgivably so. However, Forbidden Island - while still having plenty going on and lots to think about - is a much lighter game that appeals to a different audience. It also plays faster and is smaller, prettier, and with a completely different theme. So, still has it's place. I'm glad I have both.
