Almost defies description of a game. The only redeeming quality is there's some interesting interaction between carnivores, herbivores, and the watering hole. But ultimately it comes down to who goes 2nd having a significant advantage along with whoever is able to create the biggest and largest carnivores to eat everything else. Thus the game is basically "solved" after one play-through.
I came into this game with low expectations, but that was completely unfounded. The incorporation of evolution as both a theme and mechanic makes this game come to life. And the decisions of how to play trait cards are wonderful. Should I bolster my body size, apply a new trait, or start a new species? These options are triggered in the same way, but can lead to very different game paths.
(10/17) 5. Disappointed that I didn't like this one more. The card interactions were just a little too fiddly and I never felt like I could really get into it too deeply. Perhaps on more plays the strategies would emerge.
