Dinosaur themed take-that card game Extinction on KS

“EXTINCTION is a card game that’s been destroying friendships since the dinosaurs.”

The River Dwellers are bringing dinosaurs back in Extinction: A Dinosaur Survival Card Game, a new dinosaur themed take-that game from designer Benjamin Chong. In Extinction, 2-5 players try to guard their 6 eggs from the other opponents, avoiding inevitable extinction before the famous meteor strike takes players down. Players start with an herbivore habitat to shelter their growing dinos, but of course everyone aspires to obtain a famed carnivore habitat.  Card play involves growing your hatchling beasts into full-fledged terrors, attacking the other player, defending against attacks, stealing other players dinos, and drawing as many cards as possible. The winner is the player who can successfully guard their clutch of eggs and avoid extinction. The Kickstarter campaign for Extinction continues through August 8, and the game is expected to deliver in October 2019.
