Pay what you can for board game Fireball Island

Restoration Games:
We know a lot of folks have been hit hard by the virus in a lot of different ways — whether you’ve lost a job or are just feeling the strain of of this situation we find ourselves in — and we’d like to do what we can to help out during these trying times. We have a limited supply of the first printing of Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-Kar that recently made it back into the warehouse. Other than the retro box style and a card with a typo, it’s the same amazing game of flicking fireballs as the newest printing.

The game regularly sells for $75, but we’re offering it here as a Pay-What-You-Can option. Once we’ve sold through these remaining copies, we’ll donate all the profits from these sales to a charity benefiting folks who’ve been hit the hardest. You all get a fun game to play, and some less fortunate folks get some much needed assistance. (And if you combine this purchase with other items from our store, you’ll still only pay our $5 flat shipping rate.)

If you have financial trouble but still want to pick up a game for your friends and family, pay what you can.

If you’re doing pretty well and want to give back to folks who aren’t faring so well, pay a little more.

Original Product Description: Vul-Kar is back, and he’s meaner than ever. This fully restored version of the 1986 classic offers an amazing new island, a charming new narrative, stunning new components, and engaging new gameplay. Play cards to race across the island. Gather treasures and take snapshots. And, of course, blast your friends with fireballs! The new version offers more marble mayhem with a dynamic Vul-Kar figure that keeps you guessing where they’ll come out. But make sure you get back to the Hello-copter to really max out your score.
