We all became completely obsessed with the board game Fireball Island when we were kids.
The game has become one of those relics from our past that is now worth a good chunk of change. The board game itself is listed for hundreds of dollars online and while I love the game, I don't know that I could justify paying that much for it.
I mean, it's a classic, but I just can't justify it. Luckily for me, I won't have to. Because even though we all complain that everything old comes back, this time it's actually a good thing.
Fireball Island is coming back!
Fireball Island came out in 1986 and it became one of the most beloved board games of all time. It was an amazing adventure, and it took board games to a vertical level that no other game really had at that time.
The point of the game was to escape the island with the jewel, but all the other players are going after the same thing. There are traps and obstacles you have to make through, but the last thing you want is to be hit by a fireball.
Personally, I always took issue with the "fake jewel" card. It seemed to be used against me every time I started to get ahead. Maybe that's what I've never been willing to spend the hundreds of dollars to experience that pain again.
