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
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.
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.

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.Published on January 16, 2013 by Julie Warburton
BIOS: Megafauna is an excellent game, but only if you allow it to reach its full potential. You essentially control one of four groups of animals: two groups of "dinosaurs" (really... Read morePublished on December 24, 2012 by Jude
