Description

In Dinosaur Island, players will have to collect DNA, research the DNA sequences of extinct dinosaur species, and then combine the ancient DNA in the correct sequence to bring these prehistoric creatures back to life. Dino cooking! All players will compete to build the most thrilling park each season, and then work to attract (and keep alive!) the most visitors each season that the park opens.

Do you go big and create a pack of Velociraptors? They'll definitely excite potential visitors, but you'd better make a large enough enclosure for them. And maybe hire some (read: a lot of) security. Or they WILL break out and start eating your visitors, and we all know how that ends. You could play it safe and grow a bunch of herbivores, but then you aren't going to have the most exciting park in the world (sad face). So maybe buy a roller coaster or two to attract visitors to your park the good old-fashioned way?

Children are correct: dinosaurs are really freaking cool. When I was a little kid I dreamed of being some sort of archae-paleontologist (ala Indiana Jones crossed with Dr. Alan Grant) on a crazy quest to discover treasure and dinosaur bones in exotic locations.

“Wait a second,” you say, “Dinosaur Island does not actually use the Jurassic Park brand.” That’s true; however, you don’t have to squint hard to imagine Richard Attenborough on the game’s cover or to soak in the overwhelming ‘90s vibes. This may not be a Jurassic Park board game in name, but it’s certainly one in...

Dinosaur parks. We all know they’d be a terrible idea, but that doesn’t stop us from dreaming about how awesome it would be to see those legendary creatures up close. Imagine that hot Tyrannosaurus Rex breath bearing down on you as you gaze up in awe at its comically tiny arms.

I feel like most kids have a phase where they want to be a paleontologist – dinosaurs are super cool, after all; there’s a lot of mystery about them, and they look great in museums. (Really though, I work in one and I’m always asked “is that the museum with dinosaurs?”).
