Product Description

Establish subterranean civilizations, tame fire, or just be super-sexy.

Product Description

Start as a proto-dinosaur or proto-mammal, just after the Permian apocalypse that destroyed 96% of the planet. Faced with environmental changes and competition from others, you must mutate your species and start new species. Create bizarre chimeras, from vegetarian velociraptors to flying dolphins. Establish subterranean civilizations, tame fire, or just be super-sexy.

Overview. From 1 to 4 players start as proto-dinosaurs or proto-mammals. These creatures are distinguished by dentition; some have long batteries of teeth better suited for masticating plants, while others have fewer teeth better suited for meat-eating. Each player starts with genes used to purchase mutation and genotype cards. Stacks of cards and tiles indicate the dietary DNA of your species, giving it adaptations such as long necks for browsing. Markers on tracks record roadrunner DNA, attributes that help your species catch prey or avoid being prey, such as swiftness or aggressiveness. You can create interesting critters, like blubbery vegetarian velociraptors, or flying fire-using hedgehogs. Tiles that have gone extinct are collected in an area on the map called the "tarpits". These tiles are distributed among the most populous players as victory points during four scoring rounds.

    For the serious-minded board gamer, BIOS is about as good as it gets.

    My creatures seem to attract meteors, but as the game covers four periods (Triassic to Tertiary) you can bank your scores at the end of each of them.

    It took me one solo play through to understand enough of the game to enjoy playing it and to play it with easy.

    This is an immensely appealling concept, a game where turns cover two million years and where species and habitats change as influences from Carbon Dioxide emission to erosion shape them. You can collect strings of DNA in your "animals" and endeavour to place them in the correct food-chains to survive the vicissitudes of life. They may start out as amphibians and end up as birds. My creatures seem to attract meteors, but as the game covers four periods (Triassic to Tertiary) you can bank your scores at the end of each of them.

    However, the rules at present are really not good enough; full of unexplained terms and vague concepts. The process of developing the game to completion is presently ongoing and you can follow progress at the BoardGameGeek site or the relevent Yahoo Group. Had the rules been complete this would have merited a 5 star

    Amazing Game!

    The directions look intimidating, yes, but a quick read through, a watch of a tutorial video on youtube, and you're good to go. It's actually quite easy to play and understand once you've read it and gained an understanding of the game mechanics. The main draw for me was that it had single player rules, a full 4 player game can take over 2 hours (especially if you're just learning how to play the game). It's great fun to play once you've gotten the mechanics down. It took me one solo play through to understand enough of the game to enjoy playing it and to play it with easy.

    I bought this for my son and he loves it. He says he wishes that the sister game wasn't out of print because he'd buy that one too.
