Jurassic Snack Game
This game is a great introduction to strategic thinking for children. On a player’s turn, they move one of their “Dinos” to a spot in the meadow to reveal a secret hidden under a shrubbery tile. These tiles give players’ points, and some also give players additional actions such as hatching another Dino, revealing additional tiles, or to place a T. Rex on the board to eliminate the other player’s dinosaurs. The game ends when all tiles are taken, the T. Rex eliminates all of one player’s Dinos or a player is not able to take an action on their turn. The player with the most points on their collected tiles wins the game! This is a 2-player game that takes about 15 minutes.
The young Diplodocus (Diplos) are fond of the delicious leaves that can be found in the surrounding meadows.
To win, your Diplos team will have to eat more leaves that the opposing team... unless you choose to use the ferocious T. Rex to eliminate all Dinos opposing the meadow!
