Evolution. The Origin of species is a great example of a popular science game. The author managed to combine science with great playability. Animals of different species live and develop, receive new abilities and compete for food. To become a speedy carnivore or a big water dweller, it all depends on the habitat.d

So your main goal is to make a developed population of species that would fight for survival, and by the end of the game will dominate the planet!

The best thing is that Evolution can be used as an educational and very informative game because you can not only play a game and have fun, but also you are able to learn the basic concepts of the evolution of life and all living organisms on Earth. Of course, you can also play this board game with family or friends, and we promise that everyone will be deeply interested in the process of the creating new animals and protecting their lives.

This game will appeal to both people who enjoy casual board games (30 min to learn the rules is more than enough) and to hardcore players who plan complex strategies to win.

In the game your animals go through several stages. In the beginning primitive animals appear, then the player gives them different traits, helps them to adapt to the environment. Some animals are becoming predators; others learn to defend themselves from them. An animal can become a scavenger or grow fins and go back into the ocean.

The players then determine the amount of available food and begin to feed their animals.

If any animal is left hungry it is dying out of starvation. Each turn, players get new cards for their survived animals and game stages go over and over again. The basic idea of the game is that the more animals the player has, the harder they are to feed and protect, although, survived animals have more opportunities for development. In the end of the game the player with the most advanced and developed population will be a winner.

Even if the Evolution board game supposed to be played by 2-4 players, don’t worry! You can easily increase the number of players up to 8 by mixing two game sets. Also there are a lot of expansions for the game: Evolution Time to Fly, Evolution Continents and Evolution Variation Mini-Expansion (you can find out about expansions by clicking hereafter on them).
