The Age of Dinosaurs is an interactive strategy board game for 3-4 players. Players migrate populations of twelve dinosaur species across varying habitats in a quest to find food and avoid being eaten. Each player begins with 10 points of dinosaurs on the board, and increases this point total by successfully breeding dinosaurs to produce eggs, which hatch into new dinosaurs at the end of the round. Just as in a real ecosystem, each different species occupies its own niche, with different food requirements, fighting ability, and favored habitats. The arrangement of the various habitats changes from game to game… so, you will learn the basics of the game quickly, but you will never play the same game twice! To play the game well, a player must determine which combination of species will be most advantageous on a given board, and place their dinosaurs in locations where they will be able to find food and mates and avoid being eaten. First player to reach 40 points wins!
Average play time: 90 minutes. Recommended for ages 10-adult.
