The game is very similar to Deserted Island, and I used that template to make Horror Island. But while you only run into a few problems on Deserted Island, Horror Island takes you to a whole new level.
The game starts with students on a beach with a box. They have to choose 4 of 10 items. None of these items will help them, but they don’t know that. Let them discuss what they think will help them and why they want to take it.
The real meat and potatoes of the game starts when they explore the island. There are 6 creatures there, and students will have to roll dice based on what animal they get. Consequences are dire, and many students will die.
Check out this game first hand with the Horror Island ESL teaching video on Youtube.
Give your students the fright of their life, with a good dose of fun mixed in. Expect to get a good 30 to 60 minutes out of this when you give it a try. And for just $0.99 how could you not?
