"Fireball Island" Board Game
Fireball Island Game Among all the board games in the Garufi household, playing Fireball Island as a family has amazingly carried on to this very day! The funny thing is, I don't think this game sold very well when it was on the market in the mid-1980s.
Fireball Island Board Red marbles acts as fireballs as players fight to get off the island with the coveted jewel.
Playing Fireball Island There I am fireballing someone while Dad objects to something. :)
