You are Friday and spend your time on a deserted Island. After Robinson suddenly capsizes with his ship and runs ashore at your beach, your peaceful times are disturbed.
To give Robinson a chance to leave the Island again, you start to teach him to improve his survival abilities against the hazards of the Island.
If Robinson beats two Pirates at the end of the game, he successfully leaves the island and you will have your beloved peace back ...
Friday is a solitaire deck-building game in which you optimize your deck of fight cards in order to defeat the hazards of the island and two pirate ships. During a turn the player will attempt to defeat hazard cards by playing fight cards from their deck.
If defeated, a hazard will become a fight card and is added to the players deck. If failed the player will lose life tokens but also get the opportunity to remove played cards from their fight deck. Finally the player will use their optimized fight deck to defeat two evil pirate ships allowing Robinson Crusoe to escape the island!
