Horizons of Spirit Island, designed by R. Eric Reuss and Christopher Badell, and brought about by collaboration between Greater Than Games and Target, is the second standalone game for Spirit Island, meaning it is playable without the original base game. It has a focus on being an excellent entry point into the game with a low MSRP of $30 USD, as well as containing 5 Low-Complexity Spirits to ease new players into quickly learning the rules of the game.

History

The announcement for Horizons of Spirit Island was posted on Greater Than Games's website on July 21st, 2022. The game was made available to purchase through Target in October 2022, and was planned to remain exclusive to Target for two years from release.

On September 1st, 2022, Greater Than Games posted another announcement to say that Horizons of Spirit Island would be available worldwide at retail stores in winter (ambiguous whether it's late 2022 or early 2023), along with the Foil Spirit Panels, and the Deluxe Invader Board. Horizons of Spirit Island will remain exclusive to Target within the United States.

On June 1st, 2023, Greater Than Games announced in their Play Greater Podcast that Target has been happy with the success of Horizons of Spirit Island, and have allowed Greater Than Games to sell the game in stores other than Target, ending the exclusivity.[1]
