In Evolution, players create and adapt their own species in a dynamic ecosystem with hungry predators and limited resources. Traits like Hard Shell and Horns will protect you from Carnivores, while a Long Neck will help you get food that others cannot reach. With over 12000 different species to create, every game becomes a different adventure. So gather your friends around the table and see who will best adapt their species to eat, multiply and thrive!

Evolution creates a closed ecosystem, where your actions directly impact others. This creates a lot of interactivity and strategies around how to play. Unfortunately, it also somewhat dictates how you should play and what your actions should be. Otherwise, it's a great family friendly card game that also educates... Which is a massive plus in my book.

Solid game, but almost no drama. Apropos to the theme, everything is relatively incremental changes in size, body parts, population, etc which does not create a strong or memorable narrative structure. It's also a game that demands a great deal of careful attention to other players' species tableaus across the table, as the difference of a couple size or multiple trait cards can be enough to sink your own species. With more than a couple opponents this is very demanding, and not in a fun way.
