Bios: Genesis and Bios: Megafauna 2nd Editions Coming From Mr. B Games

October 4, 2017 - 8:12am
Mr. B Games has announced the 2nd edition reprinting of Phil Eklund and Sierra Madre Games classic Bios series. Like most of Eklund's games (Greenland, Neanderthal), the Bios series uses real science and heavier mechanisms to simulate some of the big questions in the world. Bios: Genesis allows 1-4 players to progress from a simple ingredient in the primordial soup using both card drafting and dice mechanics, with the ultimate goal of creating life. The new second edition includes materials for 4 organisms per player instead of the original 3. In Bios: Megafauna, 2-4 players start as a plant or animal, then work up until someone wins by becoming the dominant carnivore or herbivore. Players must drift with continents, withstand huge ecological events and out-compete their competition. Megafauna includes 250 wooden bits, 160 cards, 42 disks, 5 punchboards and 20 dice. Both Bios: Genesis and Bios: Megafauna are expected to arrive in stores in November 2017.
