The Teeming Host Arrives! Many Minds Move as One and The Tsardom of Russia are now available in Jagged Earth. More to come in the future!

In the most distant reaches of the world, magic still exists, embodied by spirits of the land, of the sky, and of every natural thing. As the great powers of Europe stretch their colonial empires further and further, they will inevitably lay claim to a place where spirits still hold power - and when they do, the land itself will fight back alongside the islanders who live there.

Spirit Island is a cooperative settler-destruction strategy game designed by R. Eric Reuss and set in an alternate-history world around A.D. 1700. Players become different Spirits of the land, each with their own unique elemental powers, forced to defend their island home from colonizing Invaders spreading blight and destruction. Your Spirits work with the native Dahan to increase your power and drive the invading colonists from your island in this strategic area-control game.

Spirit Island includes:
• Free access to unlimited plays of the tutorial game
• Create custom games with up to 4 available spirits and play 5 full turns
• 36 Minor Power cards that enhance the abilities of your Spirits
• 22 Major Power cards with more powerful effects to devastate the Invaders
• A modular island, made up of 4 balanced island boards, for a variety of layouts
• Thematic island boards that reflect the canonical island and provide a new challenge
• 15 Invader cards driving a distinctive Invader expansion system
• 2 Blight cards with challenging effects as the Invaders blight the Island
• 15 Fear cards with beneficial effects, earned as you terrify the Invaders

Every rule & interaction in the game has been carefully adapted and thoroughly tested by expert Spirit Island players, as well as the designer himself. If you’re wondering how a certain situation works in Spirit Island, this game is the ultimate rules lawyer!

• Original dynamic music composed by Jean-Marc Giffin brings Spirit Island to life. Each Spirit has unique musical elements that wax and wane as the game progresses.
• 3D Textured maps bring a realistic look and isometric perspective to the Island.
• 3D Classic maps present the Island the way it looks on the tabletop.
• 2D Classic maps provide a simplified top-down option for all you number crunchers out there.

What’s New

Version 2.1.5

This update includes a few bug fixes:
- Undoing the +1 card plays growth option of A Spread of Rampant Green no longer causes the number of card plays to go negative.
- Fixed Habsburg Level 6 causing Dahan to be damaged even if they destroy all Invaders due to Engage On Their Own Terms.
- Fixed a problem where Dahan could fail to deal damage when moving in some cases in Dahan Insurrection.

A decent, pleasant adaptation

I have played the original at least 25 times. I was eager to try this app and see its worth. Truth be told, if they didn’t have that 2$ pass to access everything, I would have never consider buying it. However, I am glad that I gave it a try. I did not encounter any bug and was impressed by how efficiently every card’s quirky power is handled. I had not realized how much work it would take to adapt a game like Spirit Island. They did a good job.

All in all, I recommend it. I love the board game so much that I wish we could have had an adaptation by a more professional studio like DireWolf. I would have loved to have a reworked esthetic of SI like they did for Root. Especially at the 40$ price tag asked for Spirit Island… I am glad to support a small studio, but I wish everything looked better. Perhaps they can work on that when they will have everything added in.

Same Great Game Minor Problems

Very polished and with just having recently added multiplayer to play with people online, I’m impressed. Have yet to run across a game breaking bug and the options are as endless as they are fun. The lack of a 5th star is simply do to the game not translating well to iPhone as opposed to IPad. They have come a long ways in this regard but, in specific, selecting which spirit you want to control while dual playing spirits single player is very cumbersome. Often times selecting the spirit board instead of passing growth or card choices back to the other spirit seems like an exercise in futility. In fact, when the selection does go about correctly on the first click I’m shocked. Other than that it’s a barrel of fun and replayability.

A fun game and decent digital adaption

As a physical board game, this is one of my favorite games. This digital version is quite good, and honestly my sole complaint is that when a game is won or lost it immediately jumps away from the board to an end screen "summary" and doesn't let you actually look over the final board state, look over what cards you had chosen for that spirit and how that and event cards/fear cards affected things, think about strategies for future games, etc (which is something I deeply enjoy doing when playing the physical version with friends)
