Island Fortress is a euro style game in which players take the role of an architect constructing a giant fortress wall. This game introduces some different mechanics that you normally do not see in your typical euro game, such as blind bidding.
The wall will be built block by block, and the governor offers players the ability to gain additional victory points or other resources if players can pattern match what is on their favor cards. Overall the game plays well, although I do have a few minor issues with some of the components and the manual.
