It's a great, simple and quick game. Player interaction is encouraged through the predator cards. The quality of the components is very nice and the game is pretty easy to teach.see moreof the reviewer's review

My 6 year old and I absolutely love playing this game! It's fun and interactive and really helps children understand vocabulary like "traits", "population", "species", etc. Awesome reinforcement of science lessons.see moreof the reviewer's review
