Forbidden Island in 3D

I love fan-made versions of board games. The good ones show some amazing modeling skills, and are always labors of love. This one is a sculpted recreation of GameWright's co-op sinking-island game Forbidden Island. The original game was designed by Matt Leacock as a family-friendly version of concepts from his hit, Pandemic. Here's one overview of the board, but check out the link for a full set of pictures. I think the creator is named Baptiste Derrez, but I'm not certain of that.

Here's a picture of the original for comparison:

Wow, that's amazing, really gives a great feel for the island!

My only question though, is what happens when the location is flooded? Do they replace it with the original tile maybe?

We were wondering the same thing. I think the little glass stones shown in one of the pictures may be placed on a tile to indicate flooding, but that's just a guess.
