Draft dinosaurs and place them in different zones to get the most points.
- The game consists of 2 rounds (or 4 rounds in a 2-player game).
- Each player draws 6 dinosaurs from the bag.
- The player with the placement die rolls it.
- Each player chooses a dinosaur and places it in their zoo at the same time, following the rules on the placement die (except the roller, who can place anywhere).
- In a 2-player game, each player then discards one of the remaining dinosaurs (you might like to imagine it was loaned to an overseas petting zoo).
- Each player passes their dinosaur bag and placement die (if they had it) to their left.
- Repeat until all dinosaurs are placed.
- After 2 rounds, proceed to scoring.
- At the end of the game you'll have placed 12 dinosaurs: 6 in round 1, 6 in round 2.
- In the event of a tie, the player who has fewest T-Rexes wins. If they are still tied, the players share the win.
- There are 6 species of dinosaurs, distributed as follows:
- 5p: 60 dinos. 10 x 6 different species
- 4p: 48 dinos. 8 x 6 different species
- 3p: 36 dinos. 6 x 6 different species
