What is Family Island?

Family Island is a fun, single-player casual mobile farming game that centers around a Stone Age family living in modern times. In the game, you get to choose your own adventure and decide if you want your family to farm and harvest your crops, build houses and upgrade your village, or even set off to explore and conquer new territories. The game also allows you the opportunity to play as different characters within the family.

Is Family Island Free to Play?

Yes, Family Island is both free to download and play. While you will sometimes receive prompts asking if you’d like to spend money on in-game purchases to more quickly upgrade your village, for example, you do not need to pay any money to play and enjoy the game; in-game purchases are completely optional.

Can I Earn Money Playing Family Island?

While you cannot earn money playing Family Island, when you download Family Island through Fetch Play, you can earn free gift cards to top retailers including Amazon, Target, Apple, Google Play, Starbucks, Whole Foods, and so many more. 

Fetch Play is essentially your fast-pass to all kinds of gift cards for popular stores, restaurants, and entertainment, and all you need to do to get free gift cards is play fun games on your phone. Whether you’re waiting in line at the grocery store, waiting for your kiddos in the pickup line after school, or waiting for your partner to finish up with work, there’s lots of time we all just spend waiting around, so why not make that down time work to your advantage? Try Fetch Play today!

How to Play Family Island

In Family Island, you are a member of a Stone Age family (not unlike The Flintstones) comprised of parents Bruce and Eve and their children Tim and Lizzy. As it’s an adventure-based mobile farming game, the object is to help them tend to their farm, harvest crops, and build up their village, while also setting out to explore and find resources and different kinds of treasure.

Gameplay is very intuitive, and when you first start, you’ll be prompted to take the foundational actions you need to take in order to progress; for example, you’ll be instructed to “Tap a bush to eat berries” or “Upgrade the house” once you have the supplies you need to do so. When you begin a new level, you’ll also be given a preview of new items to collect and build; at the start of Level 2, for instance, the game lets you know you’ll be using string, fried roots, and salt and building your dinner table and loom, all for the first time.

Following the game guide in the left-hand corner of your screen (found underneath your Player Profile) is your ticket to completing the required quests needed in order to progress to the next level in Family Island, so pay attention to those prompts, and you’ll be leveling up in no time!

What is the Daily Reward?

Every day that you log in to play Family Island, you’ll be treated to a Daily Reward simply for playing. Rewards can be anything from free energy to rubies and gold tools.

There is actually a Daily Rewards calendar, so your reward each day will be different throughout the 7-day cycle. After you play 7 consecutive days, the rewards will reset, but if you miss a day, the Daily Rewards calendar resets that, and you start from the beginning.

Since the Daily Reward is offered every 24 hours, here’s how to find out how much time is left until your next Daily Reward:

  1. Tap the hamburger menu in the top-right of your screen.
  2. Click on the calendar icon, and this will take you directly to the Daily Reward section.

In addition to the Daily Reward, there are also milestone rewards throughout the month, with an extra big prize after 30 consecutive days of gameplay. You can see your milestone reward progress bar at the top of the Daily Reward screen; after 30 days, the milestone reward progress bar will reset.


What is the Chest of Fortune?

The Chest of Fortune is a hidden treasure chest containing secret prizes that you’ll need to find. To find the Chest of Fortune:

  1. Collect puzzle pieces and special tools, including the shovel, magnifying glass, and keys.
  2. Complete the puzzle to form a treasure map, which will mark when the Chest of Fortune is hidden.
  3. Go to the location that the treasure map indicates, and clear out some of the resources concealing the spot shown on the map; the Chest of Fortune will then appear.
  4. Use the shovel, magnifying glass, and key to open the chest, and claim your reward!
