Dinosaur World

1:27:14 – Rules Gist

Dinosaur World is a tile laying, worker placement game that uses dice and movement points. Each player has a player board that they use to track their DNA, threat, security, and movement points. DNA is used to make dinosaurs, threat is gained when you start making those dinosaurs, security is used to mitigate that threat and the movement points are used to get around your park. Money is used to buy attractions and dinosaur pens. A round goes like this; draft some workers, spend those workers on public actions like getting attractions and DNA. Those attractions and dinosaur pens are tiles that are placed in players individual parks. Players can also spend workers on private actions (like getting more security, more money or increasing movement points). The final phase is moving around the parks using movement points in a…jeeple. That’s right a jeep meeple, jeeple. As players move around their parks, they activate the tiles to get stuff or generate excitement and possibly threat. There is also a chance that a dinosaur will eat or step on someone which is bad to gain threats which can be negative points at the end of the game. Finally there is the income phase, where players earn money based on their excitement level, compare threat vs security and earn more resources. Game plays in five rounds, whoever has the most points wins.
