ToysBulletin.com reviews another award winning game from Mayfair Games.
As the recent winner of the Kennerspiel des Jahres (“Connoisseur/Expert Game of the Year”), we were excited to play test “Isle of Skye,” and we certainly were not disappointed.
“Isle of Skye” is basically a tile replacement game, however its fast game play and strategic elements place it firmly at the top tier of these types of games. The game contents include a double-sided game board, 16 scoring tiles, 78 landscape tiles (5 with castles), 6 player screens, a cloth bag, along with various coins, markers and tokens. The game is designed for 2-5 players ages 8 years old and up, and a typical game can be played in less than 60 minutes. The object of the game is to collect the most victory points and become the king of “Isle of Skye.”
