After 6 games (4 and 5 players) I confirm my 10! It feels very well the competition for survival!

You have to like a game with a dinosaure theame. I enjoy biding games and this has you bidding on the geane modifications of your heard of Dinosaures, which speaks to me. Favriot moment was when my 18 month Dinosaure loving boy sees me and my friends play this game, his eyes get huge and he says "ohhhhhhhhhh".

Combines two of my favorite things into one game, auctioning and engine building. Plus I love the Dino theme.

This game is pretty awesome. Might have too much conflict for some euro gamers but if you don't mind conflict, it's a blast being attacked by killer baby dinos. It's weight is like vegas showdown but with more direct interaction on a central board and the game feels a bit more tense.

The game is tense because you are trying to keep your dinos from dying (like Agricola and keeping your family from starving). Maybe it's more like small world with an auction phase for selecting powers.

One other thing to note is that when you have all 8 of your dinos out on the map there are way too many movement options and you just need to make a decision or your brain will explode especially if you have the sixth sense special dino ability.

Love the new artwork! I didn't buy the first edition because of the cartoony look.

With only two players this game is still rather fun, but I do think it's better with at least three. It's easy to teach and fun to play. I enjoy having to maneuver the adverse climate effects and terrain, and I think the bidding of victory points as currency in the auctions is a great idea.

Very unique combination of area control, bidding and tactical decisions. One of the best light/medium weight games. Sure there is some luck in this game and you can't control everything but there are many small things you should pay attention to in order to win the game.

I love this game.

The new mechanic for initiative is awesome.

Starting without thermoregulation or fur makes the first few turns much more difficult.

The new specialist genes are a bit hit and miss some more powerful than others.

Хе хей! Динозаврики вернулись. Начались битвы за выживание. Более строгое оформление, дино в начале менее приспособлены выносить суровые условия жизни на земле, карточки развития есть не у всех, зато разыгрываются каждый ход... И да - сейчас можно играть вдвоем. А вот к кругу, на котором отображается текущий климат, надо будет привыкнуть.

It is as good as the first edition, but components and graphic design have changed enormously. The first edition was quite cartoony, and this one is almos futuristic, which is quite odd for a prehistoric game...
Anyway, the game is just excellent, although I prefer the first edition with the umbrellas...

Great game; Good balance between strategy and luck (die rolling). Game can be a little long depending on how long each player takes to decide their turn; otherwise a good solid game that's very easy to learn!

For a simple game, this game really has a lot of deep strategy. The bidding of Victory points for mutations really make people think about what a mutation is worth, and placement on the board to deny possibilities of other players birthing new dinosaurs is crucial to the game, and since you don't know precisely how many turns you are playing you really can't wait too long to start scoring your points. The only slight flaw of the game is that a few of the action cards are less useful than others, but since there is nothing gamebreaking or utterly useless in the deck, that is a very small flaw.

Very great game tons of depth but still able to be taught to a gateway gamer. Has tough choices and great powers for each creature to purchase. Also has a fantastic bidding mechanic. I do love bidding. I will play this game whenever given the oppertunity.

This is such clean and clever area control with a few bells and whistles to add some depth and variety in the form of the ability to evolve your dinosaur. Simple, short, and very fun.
For those of you who are using Smallworld as a point of reference, imagine Smallworld with half the available territories, a board that fights back, nearly no need for player aids, oh and very little down time between turns.

Artwork is vg, the player boards are beautiful. Mechanics are simple yet engaging. Seemed to take a long time though. Must play again soon. I really liked it.

Though not a particularly deep game, Evo manages to engage me every time I play. It's accessibly to all levels and ages of players. The key to replayability of this game is the randomly inserted super mutations. These change every game and some powerful, though not game breaking, combos can emerge. For example, hard shells plus killer babies equals long range death. It's not necessarily an accurate evolution simulation (not since the mutations are supposedly engineered by a race of super humans), however, it's a beautiful game. The graphic design is superb and the components are top-notch.

There are almost no great Dinosaur-themed games out there, but this is one of them, that You need to pick up. Great art, easy to learn and play, and improving your Dinos (or Races) with Genes is a whole lot of fun.

Bought it because I loved the artwork, but the game play is in no way disappointing, with a lot of significant choice to make throughout.

Non abbiamo avuto ancora l'occasione di provarlo con più giocatori, ma già in 2 il gioco si presenta bene: è veloce, semplice, ben curato nelle grafiche, regolamento chiaro, materiali e scatola di ottima qualità! Il tema e l'ambientazione si sentono molto, forse un poco di meno il discorso di questa epoca dei dinosauri mescolata alla modernità, ma comunque questo tipo di ambientazione giustifica pienamente il gioco e le sue meccaniche rendendolo affascinante!
Sicuramente andrebbe giocato con più giocatori per apprezzarlo al meglio Un bel 9 ci stà!

Played a two player game by adding in an extra mutation token each round. Really liked the chance for each player to gain a mutation each round. Probably wouldn't have like it as much forcing one player to take a card. It was a really good game that is similar to Small World without as much attacking. The AP wasn't as bad as I thought it might be. Can't wait to try it with more players. The safe terrain will definitely be more precious and I can see more attacking taking place.

Amazing little game. Interesting and simple rules for a good planning experience. It seems to be key to do the bidding part right as that can do away with your hard won points. Special genes and event cards keep the dynamic ever changing.

Lovin' me some Dino-evolvin' goodness! The ever-changing climate wheel is wonderful! Love the auctioning. Great Great! game!!

I personally love my upgraded Dino minis. They really lift the theme about 200%!
