The volcano is a part of Board Game Island. It has two purposes, both act as an annoyance to the player.

In The Volcano

As a penalty place

When a player lands on a skull space or fails the 4th challenge, he/she gets pushed inside the volcano and their turn ends. Starting with his/her next turn, he/she must cover the 9-space route in the volcano before re-entering the main island where he/she was before he dropped in. He/She can also get out by stepping exactly on the shiny space of the volcano (the 4th space).

Further rules with players in volcano

Players in the volcano:

  • cannot be challenged to a 1 vs 1 minigame
  • cannot be switched with another player by an UFO (just like the player on the same square)
  • cannot be blown back by the tornado (just like the player at the start)

Order of spaces in volcano

  5. empty
  6. empty
  7. empty
  8. empty
  9. back to island

Volcano eruption

When a player lands on the volcano space, they don't get dropped into the volcano, instead the volcano erupts. It means that for the next three turns, all action spaces (except the ones in the volcano) on the island are -4 spaces. When a player steps on a -4 space during this period, rocks from the volcano fall on them, pushing him/her back four spaces. If they land on a -4 space again, another rock comes, and they go back again. The -4 spaces are cumulative.
