Draftosaurus is a family game with a simple setup where players draft dinosaurs to create their own zoo. Publisher Ankama originally debuted Draftosaurus at the International Games Festival in Cannes. It’s designed by the Kaedama team (Antoine Bauza, Corentin Lebrat, Ludovic Maublanc, and Théo Rivière), with art by Jiahui Eva Gao, and Vipin Alex Jacob.
In Draftosaurus, players fill up various pens in their zoo represented by a player board. Each pen has specific conditions in order to be classified as “filled”. Players start with six dinosaur meeples in hand, then play one of those to a pen before passing the remaining meeples to their neighbor for drafting. There’s also a die which imposes random requirements on everyone.
Draftosaurus is currently available in retail stores.
