Description Edit | History

The game traces the development of early human species from 120,000 years ago through to the near-modern era. Players take the role of Peking Man, Archaic Homo Sapiens, Cro-Magnon, Neanderthal, or Homo Floresiensis, and each attempts to develop instincts and higher cortical brain functioning, such as language traits. The populations expand and collide, and eventually consciousness, society, and culture are sought after.

6 Terrain cards 3
These should print out as cards with the enter/inhabit rules for every terrain type, grouped so there is one card for each possible combination (8 in all).. The climate doesn't change that often, and it's handy to have the current set on one card for easy reference. The 3 files together cover every combination possible.
