Rather than buy and trade properties, players buy and trade dinosaur species. “Purists” might be miffed that some non-dinosaurs like the Pterosaur are considered dinosaurs, but that shouldn’t take away from the fun. On the “property” cards, players will find information about the dinosaur species that they purchased. Instead of Community Chest and and Chance cards, players will pick Herbivore and Carnivore cards. Rather than landing on a railroad, players find themselves landing on a dig site, and since there were no utilities or taxes during any prehistoric period when dinosaurs lived, players may end up landing on spaces marked “Watering Hole” or “Asteroid Crash.” Players choose one of six tokens: a dinosaur egg, a footprint, a skeleton, a T-Rex skull, a Triceratops skull and a claw. For ages 8 and up
If you are familiar with the game Candyland, then you have the basic idea for how this game is played. Players take turns rolling a die and moving along a path of colored squares. Squares can direct players to move back or move forward a certain number of spaces. The fun for dinosaur lovers is in the details. The tokens players can choose from are different fossils and the path players move their tokens around is a path through time. It starts in the era when dinosaurs first roamed the eary about 570 million years ago. As the players move forward, they move through the different dinosaur eras: Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. The reasons for moving backward and forward spaces include reasons like “Develop lungs. Swim ahead three spaces” and “Bitten by Plesiosaurus. Paddle back two spaces.” Each side of the board has 9 openings for cutouts. As players land on a creature, they collect a cutout and put in in the appropriate opening. The first player to collect all nine cutouts wins. Players have to answer questions correctly to collect the cutout. Each card has three levels of questions, so more knowledgeable kids can play along with less knowledgeable kids. This was one of my son’s favorite games when he was young. Ages 4-10
