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.

After a couple plays, this game looks like a great addition to the library. I highly recommend getting the latest copy of the Living Rules (go to board game geek or the Sierra Madre site for these) because they add some tweaks to minimize the chances of a player getting hosed by the variables in the game.

This game is fantastic and is certainly now one of my favorites. The goal is to survive a dramatically changing prehistoric environment. You do this by purchasing DNA, like Marine or Insectivore,and mutating so you can enter various habitats or even prey on species belonging to other players.

BIOS: MEGAFAUNA has an impressive amount of variety. Each game played has unique characteristics and never starts, plays, or finishes the same way. Players can also make interesting and often bizarre creatures which adds variety and even comedic value. Endless enjoyment can be had with anywhere from 1-4 players especially for those who enjoy watching their opponents progress be destroyed by a comet or severe shift in climate.

This game is also very detailed and very well designed; there are a lot of variables thus a lot of game mechanics. It may seem a bit overwhelming at first, but it really is not difficult to learn. If you're expecting something casual that you can can pull from the box and learn and play for the first time within a few minutes then this probably isn't the best game for you.

There is a surprising amount of educational value here too; it could definitely fit in well in science classroom if you're a teacher looking to mix things up for a day.

BIOS: MEGAFAUNA is a bit more expensive than a lot of popular board games on the market but it's certain that it is well worth the price and will not be a disappointing experience or part of your collection.
