Weekly Challenge #2 - Dino Twist
Sooo this game is out of print... but I just recently scored this off of a recent BGG auction. #Dino Twist is a simple card game that employs set collection, "tableu building"/card placement, and simultaneous selction and placement. Over the course of 10 rounds, you are working to populate your island with the most powerful dinosaurs before the giant meteor destroys Twist Island.
The 3 things that attracted me to this game were the artwork, price point, and the fact that it is out of print. Though I was thinking these might be the only things to enjoy (because some games go out of print for a reason), its simple mechanics and fun theme brought a fun and enjoyable light game experince. Though the game is not going to change much with each play, it is short enough to use as a filler and light enough to have conversation while playing.
- artwork that pops
- perfect time length
- simulateous turns
- somewhat confusing island cards
