Fireball Island

I don't know if the most people here are too young to remember the original game, but is anybody else looking forward to the remake of Fireball Island?

The game is played on a 3-D board, and the goal is to go around the island collecting treasures. You can set other players back by trying to hit them with "fireball" marbles. The old game was a pretty simple affair, but they've updated the remake with a lot of improvements, making it into more of a modern game. More strategy, more variety, more abilities, etc.

I joined the backerkit and am really excited for my copy to show up. I'd never heard of the original, but I think Restoration Games' premise of revitalizing older games is fantastic.

I likewise joined the backerkit, having missed the Kickstarter.

I had a copy of Fireball Island when I was a kid, but I'm not sure I ever played a game of it using the actual rules. Specifically, I don't remember ever using the cards.

EDIT: I am also likewise really excited.

I also had it as a kid and also remember it as one of the games where the components were so much fun we didn't usually bother with the rules. Mousetrap, grape escape and the omega virus also were along those lines.
