Included in these Offers


In Dinosaur Island, players will have to collect DNA, research the DNA sequences of extinct dinosaur species, and then combine the ancient DNA in the correct sequence to bring these prehistoric creatures back to life. Dino cooking! All players will compete to build the most thrilling park each season, and then work to attract (and keep alive!) the most visitors each season that the park opens.

Do you go big and create a pack of Velociraptors? They'll definitely excite potential visitors, but you'd better make a large enough enclosure for them. And maybe hire some (read: a lot of) security. Or they WILL break out and start eating your visitors, and we all know how that ends. You could play it safe and grow a bunch of herbivores, but then you aren't going to have the most exciting park in the world (sad face). So maybe buy a roller coaster or two to attract visitors to your park the good old-fashioned way?

Dinosaur Island is a Fantastic Worker Placement Game

Reviewed by on

As the Title Mentions this is a Fantastic Worker Placement Game, each phase has that "Please don't take my Action" Fear as you only want the best to get your park going, however there is always something else that keeps fun and interactive.

If you are a fan of Jurassic Park you will Love this game, as there is so many references to the movie, even the Rule book has this DNA Guy from the movie explaining the rules

I do feel that the Short game is not really worth it, as you feel the game is just starting and suddenly come to a complete stop. Will always recommend the medium to Long Games when setting up.

Just one Tip: Being First player is Extremely important in this Game.
