My whole family is crazy about the TV show LOST. So when last Christmas came around and I saw LOST The Board Game, I naturally had to buy it for my brother. He loves board games and we play something every time we visit, so I thought this would fit right in. Overall, it is a fun game if you are as crazy about LOST as we are. If you're not that big of a fan, don't bother even trying.
It took us a long time to figure out how to play LOST. It took about an hour just get understand the rules and set the board up properly. We even had to go online to get more clarification. The online site has a forum which came in handy when figuring it all out.
The object of the game is to go around the board pieces, turning them over when you first land on them, and following the directions it has written on it. As you go, you have the opportunity to gain more characters on your team. In the end, you want to fight other players and gain control of all the characters. There are many different situations and cards that complicates this task, and honestly confuse us more than anything. When this happens, we usually just make up our own rules.
The game is most fun in the beginning when you are turning over the board pieces. After that it gets a bit boring. I don't think we have really ever finished a game. We just like playing it for a while because we love LOST so much.
