In this game players build their own park filled with dinosaurs!

The game goes for 6 rounds, each round consisting of 7 phases in which players gather food, place workers on the available spots, gathering dinosaurs, extra food for the animals, fences to keep them, science cards with special abilities or players fulfilling contracts in which they trade dinosaurs for points!

At the end of each round players must feed and breed their animals, if this is not possible, the animals escape and do some damage!

After the last round players count scores from contracts, science cards and dinosaurs. Highest score wins the game!


👍 I love how TINY this game is for its gameplay. The gameplay is quite big for its size. A lot of fun to take on holidays

👍 The gameplay is nice! I really like how you have to feed and breed the animals, thematically it feels fun!

👍 I love the meeoles! There are 76 Dino meeples in this little game, thats kind of cool 😏

➖ To fullfill a private contract you must fullfill a normal contract at the same time, this feels a bit weird.


The solomode plays with a small deck of cards and is quite on the difficult side. It does work very well though and is well explained in the rulebook. After 6 plays I still haven't defeated the AI! 😅


A copy of this game was provided to me by Gamelyn Games for the purpose of writing this review. My opinion however remains my own.
