Game Arrivals: Week ending Sept. 4th


Here is this week's game arrivals:

New Game!

New in the Tiny Epic series (big game, small box) is Tiny Epic Dinosaurs, a dinosaur ranching, worker placement, and resource management game for 1 to 4 players that plays in around 30 to 45 minutes.

In Tiny Epic Dinosaurs, players are Dino Ranchers, running large-scale operations on a remote tropical island.  Dinosaurs are bred and sold to the highest bidders for use in popular, high-thrill theme parks.  But ranching these prehistoric beasts is hard and dangerous work. The game is played over 6 rounds. With each round consisting of several short phases. During these phases players will be acquiring, breeding, and selling dinosaurs. At the end of the game, players will receive victory points for each dinosaur they have, public and private contracts they acquired and for their research developments. The player with the most victory points, wins the game.

How can you not love the components:  75 wooden Dino Meeples, 20 wooden ranchers, 26 wooden barriers, tracker tokens, a rangler die, 4 player mats, 4 ranch mats, 4 action mats, 3 game play mats, 30 research cards, and 36 contract cards.
