Game Goes "Off The Charts": La Isla

It's been a while since we've taken a game "Off The Charts".  So, this past Monday we headed for the Oregon coast where to our surprise the temperature was a full 30 degrees cooler than in Gresham.  The ocean was pretty calm and the skies were a little overcast with a lite mist - still better that the hot sun in Portland.




At Beverly Beach we found an empty picnic table for a game of La Islaa game about finding and capturing 5 different extinct species of animals. 

With a perfect spot next to a dark woodsy area we were off to see if there were any extinct Dodo's, Golden Toads, or maybe even a Giant Fossa or two to be found.

We were each racking up our collection of extinct species.  However, Ron kept getting to the right place with key resources and the right cards to get that next animal into his collection. In the end I couldn't beat him.  A fun game and a fun day.





We have an open copy of La Isla  available in our Store Demo Games Library for you come in and try.
