If Kickstarters aren't reviewed why are games available in one shop in one country ? ;-p

Because if Ravensburger sends me the review copy I requested before I just broke down and bought it I will send it to you at no charge as hush payment.

Check stock online before you go. Some Targets have had it for weeks, some still don’t have it. It looks like stores are getting 4 copies each, and they are stuck in the section where they have Exploding Kittens and Cards Against Humanity.

Excellent review. Very nuanced analysis of theme (ok, setting), mechanics, and strategy. For the price, it sounds like a good game, but nothing that I really need.

Interesting. This sounds great, and like one of the few one vs. many games where it'd pay off to have the kid play the 'bad' guys. What 8 year old doesn't want to be a bunch of dinosaurs? How much text is there on the cards?

Very little text. My 6 year old can handle that part of it, but the strategy is a little beyond her.

I hate going to Target for a board game, but I may have to...

My 6 year old son can play the dinosaurs, almost no text on those cards. once you explain what each dinosaur action, and what each dino card do he's golden. my 8 year old can play the humans, there is some reading on the individual characters cards.

"However, I also feel like this game comes with the same caveat that came with Thanos Rising, which I reviewed last week. And, in fact, it's also the same thing that pushed me to rate Hogwarts Battle and Doctor Who: Time of the Daleks perhaps a little higher than I would without their licenses."
I believe you meant Doctor Who: Time Clash ;)

We played this last night. I feel like this is a top notch family game, and am going to be recommending it to my boss who has a couple of kids who are getting tired of pandemic and want something a bit more confrontational, but a wife who doesn’t like all out competitive games.

Nothing says “I love you, kids” like devouring their avatar, legs first, with a Spinosaurus

I liked it well enough and think it would be good for a group of dinosaur loving kids. There are imbalance issues but a kid won't notice. The end game is kind of a suck but, again, a kid wouldn't care.

As an adult, as I like Jurassic Park and dinosaurs but am not a uber-fan-boi of them, I don't need to make excuses for it. There is no reason I would ever choose this game over Survive.
