Fireball Island is a 1986 board game very popular among collectors. The game includes a plastic tiki idol placed in the middle of a molded 3D board. Players try to climb up the sides of the mountain using paths and caves with the aim of retrieving the idol’s giant ruby and take it to a boat waiting down the other side. Both the tiki idol and the volcano regularly expel fireballs that, shaped like marbles, roll down the sides of the mountain. These fireballs can plow through explorer pawns or topple bridges.
