Overcome natural disasters, avoid famine and fend off attacks from your dinosaur opponents. This game has it all! For ages 5 and up with 2 play versions. Over 130 components including a DINO DIE! The unique concept of this Dinosaur Game sets it apart from other board games. It's NOT a trivia game! The Dinosaur Game requires no previous knowledge of dinosaurs. Instead, players learn as they play. Players choose one of 16 different dinosaurs and receive a description card that tells scientifically accurate information about your prehistoric self, such as whether you are a carnivore or herbivore, what habitat you live in and how you rate on various characteristics from intelligence to defenses. Your goal as a dinosaur is to SURVIVE by reaching the finish square first. To do this you must overcome obstacles such as Natural Disasters, Attacks from your dinosaur opponents and food shortages. The game uses an indirect learning style, which means that it is primarily fun and educational too. The game includes over 130 exciting playing pieces and now is packaged with a DINO DIE. Also, two versions of the game are included in the instructions allowing different play for readers and non-readers. For ages 5 and up.

For less than $30 the whole family can get in on the dinosaur fun!
