Tiny Islands is a digital roll-&-write game that uses cards instead of dice for generating the random items you get to draw.

Turn the cards over and pick what and where you want to draw the items to create your own islands.

Mouse over the images on the cards to get a reminder of how each feature works.

Share a picture of your tiny islands along with your score with #MyTinyIslands and compare with other players.

Very nice Place´em up, I finally got above 70, nice challenge!

My first 60-pointer. Loving this simple-but-elegant game.

Nice! I don't think I'm beating that =p

i found a case where i cant put my third island

Somehow, the more I play the worse I get at this game.

That made me feel better about my scores (':


A monastery island

first run how good did i do?   my score was 34

Simple, yet so addicting. Love the concept!


That's such a simple but brilliantly effective game. Nice work!


I think my third or fourth game. Score 64 getting better each time :)

Very calming, been playing almost daily now...
Would love a flip&write PNP version to play with my family and friends!

5*. Calming! My best score was 75, back in 2020.

like this its a fun and simple chill game


Awww yeah, happy with this one! ^_^

Great game, if a bit too addictive!


Hello, I love the game and always wanted to play in on mobile.

We finally made an Android version. It also has an additional feature - Mill.


Thanks again for inspiration!


I'm unpleased that it only have 100+ downloads D:<

download that if u wanna play on android people


i freaking love this game, forgot the name of it for a while but so glad i found it again! very entertaining and i like competing with my friends for best score haha


Love all those different possible interactions between different tiles and uncertainty on which tile set you get next. If only the map was a little bigger...


awesome game but I also would want bigger map scales and longer/endles mode


Love this game! Def would recommend bigger map scales and longer games/endless mode! Maybe that's just me wanting to play longer lololol


Great game. Are there any development plans for mobile?

Was this inspired by Cartographers? Very similar feel - and that's not a bad thing at all!

Scored a 50 my first time through, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It was definitely influenced by roll-and-writes and flip-and-writes in general but I hadn't seen Cartographers when I first released it, I think Cartographers may have come out the same year.  I recently got a copy to compare, but haven't got round to playing it yet. Glad you enjoyed it.

Oh yes, I saw that it was the same year - so I doubted myself after I wrote that.

Since you haven't gotten around to it yet - my one recommendation for Cartographers is to play with coloured pencils to fill in the spaces. 100% a better scoring and gameplay experience in my books.


Best score ever! :D

Well, MY best score ever ...

Finally broke 70 on a daily! :D

Wonderful game, I love it!


I would play this all day if it was on iOS. But as is, I can still manage to play it half the day.

Pretty fun, this was my second score.


I wish this was downloadable. B^(


Third time with this! Cannot seem to break my high score on the daily shuffle! 

My current high-score!


How much can you get with an island-in-a-lake-on-an-island?


I tried something different...


Actually made me chuckle.

iv never scored a 130, congratulations man!


These mountainous forests. That's a new personal high score

First try on the daily shuffle (17.4.) I certainly never had 12 Points with boats


Best score I've ever seen. Houses are underrated. 

Oh wow!

88 is the highest score I've seen on Twitter. It was also basically done with houses and mountains. Houses really are underrated.

new high score! cant wait to break it 

My new high score! Just getting started! :)

So yeah... Mountain strats seem to work extremely well xD

Finally cracked 70! Brilliant game.

Woohoo! Such a simple and charming game, got myself and 3 others hooked ;)
