Pandasaurus Games Announces Dinosaur Island

February 28, 2017 - 8:21am
Pandasaurus Games, responsible for Machi Koro, Yedo, and Wasteland Express Delivery Service coming out this year, has begun its Kickstarter campaign for the newly announced Dinosaur Island from designers Jon Gilmour (Dead of Winter) and Brian Lewis (Titans of Industry).  As the name suggests, players will spare no expense in competing to build the most prosperous dinosaur theme park while researching and creating live (within the confines of the game, that is) dinos to populate it.  According to Pandasaurus:
In Dinosaur Island, players will have to collect DNA, research the DNA sequences of extinct dinosaur species, and then combine the ancient DNA in the correct sequence to bring these prehistoric creatures back to life. Dino cooking! All players will compete to build the most thrilling park each season, and then work to attract (and keep alive!) the most visitors each season that the park opens.
Players will use dice and workers to build up their parks and laboratories, while having to keep a watchful eye on security.  While all major theme parks have delays, in this case, the attractions do break out and eat the tourists.  Dinosaur Island's true calling card is the technicolor '90s artwork from Kwanchai Moriya and Peter Wocken.  Hold on to your butts! Dinosaur Island is for 1-4 Players, playable in 60-150 minutes (scalable length regardless of player count), for ages 10 and up.  For more information, check out the Kickstarter campaign page here.
