You start by determining what items and injuries you escaped the crash with. Then, during the Day phase you spend hearts to leave camp and forage for Supply and Food cards. Then, at sunset you decide how to share what you've found and whether to craft items. This (hopefully) prepares you for the Night phase where weather, wild animals and events put you and your team to the test.
A further twist is that if you get down to one heart you "go mad" which adds extra challenges (singing, dance, staring thumb war challenges) to you and the group. Lose all of your hearts and you die. The group keeps playing without you.
The result is a game where you are forced to weigh up how to work together to survive. As different players lose or gain health, who needs equipment and sustenance the most, changes. Into this the Madness card inject fun and silliness.
Play Time: This game will take between 15 minutes and 20 minutes to complete.
