This is probably the most beautiful game I've ever seen. The art does a great job of evoking the scene. You really feel like there are lots of animals in the jungle all struggling to get food and thrive. The game is a little complicated to begin with, but it all comes together during your first g...see moreof the reviewer's review

North Star Games have taken their medium-complexity game of Evolution and distilled it down into a version that you can bring to a family gathering. The price is around half of what the "big brother" version costs, but the game in the box is WAY more than half of the full game. There's clever card c...see moreof the reviewer's review

I have the original Northstar Games version of Evolution and it is one of my favorites. However, it is too hard for my daughter to play, but this makes Evolution easier to play and when she gets older it'll be easier to introduce her to the real evolution game. For those of you familiar with Evoluti...see moreof the reviewer's review

I'm a fan of the original Evolution board game, so I was eager to try this new version. The artwork is still beautiful and the game works really well with 2 players, which I like because my wife and I are often on the lookout for good 2-player games. It also went over well when I played it with so...see moreof the reviewer's review

This is a great game for the family. I love Evolution: Climate but I would not bring it to the table with my family due to it's complexity and length but this game easy to teach and does not over stay it's welcome. The replayability is great, each games feels different since you modify your strategy...see moreof the reviewer's review

I think this is a really fun competitive strategy game. I haven't played anything else in the Evolution family, but I have a number of strategy boardgames in my collection (Carcassone, Ticket to Ride, TtR:Europe, TtR:NY, Oceanos, Azul). The game mechanics are really tight and there are few enough ac...see moreof the reviewer's review
