BLUE LAGOON (Blue Orange Games, 2 to 4 players, ages 8 and up, 30-45 minutes; $29.99)
Blue Orange is becoming a darling of Gen Con, developing a reputation for well-produced, family-friendly games. This year they released Blue Lagoon, a game from Reiner Knizia that harkens back to his hit classic Through the Desert (reviewed under its original title Durch die Wuste in the Winter 1995 issue of Gamers Alliance Report). The game was a critical and commercial success at the convention, selling hundreds (if not thousands) of copies and earning a spot on most “hotness” lists covering the convention.
