Evolution is an award-winning board game where 2 – 6 players adapt species in an ever-changing ecosystem with hungry predators and limited resources. Traits like Hard Shell and Horns will protect you from Carnivores, while a Long Neck will get food that others cannot reach.
With over 12,000 different species to create, every game becomes a different adventure. So gather your friends and see who can best adapt their species to eat, multiply and thrive!
Evolution has been used in the evolutionary biology department at the University of Oxford and featured in the world's leading scientific journal, Nature.
How to Play
The goal of Evolution is to thrive in the midst of an ever-changing ecosystem where food is scarce and predators lurk. You will get points for feeding your species, increasing their population, and evolving them to best ensure their survival. At the end of the game, players get points for:
- The Food their species have eaten during the game.
- The Population of their surviving species.
- The Trait Cards on their surviving species.
A game of Evolution usually takes 5 to 7 rounds. There are 5 phases in each round. When playing with 2 or 6 players, use the appropriate rules variation on Page 9.
