The d0x3d! was inspired by Forbidden Island, a title from 2010 that is simple but versatile enough to be played either by yourself or with up to four players. Leacock’s d0x3d! comes in two editions: the Standard version that comes with everything you need to play in a “handsome” box, or the No Frills version, which comes with everything you need to play, but without the organizational box inserts and instruction manual.
