Dominant Species (5th Printing)
Het is 90,000 voor christus en de ijstijd komt er snel aan , kan jij jouw soort snel genoeg aanpassen om de strijd aan tegaan en de dominante soort te worden. Dominand Spieces is een meester werk, veel spelmechanisme zijn hier in verwerkt en werken naadloos samen in een verschrikkelijk goed spel. Wel heb je zitvlees nodig en je moet wat gewend zijn op spelletjes goed.
The large hexagonal tiles are used throughout the game to create an ever-expanding interpretation of earth as it might have appeared a thousand centuries ago. The smaller tundra tiles will be placed atop the larger tiles -- converting them into tundra in the process -- as the ice age encroaches.
The cylindrical action pawns (or "AP"s) drive the game. Each AP will allow a player to perform the various actions that can be taken, such as speciation, environmental change, migration or glaciation. After being placed on the action display during the Planning Phase, an AP will trigger that particular action for the owning player during the Execution Phase.
Generally, players will be trying to enhance their own animals’ survivability while simultaneously trying to hinder that of their opponents’ -- hopefully collecting valuable victory points (or "VP"s) along the way. The various cards will aid in these efforts, giving players useful one-time abilities or an opportunity for recurring VP gains.
Throughout the game, species cubes will be added to, moved about in, and removed from the tiles in play (the "earth"). Element disks will be added to and removed from both animals and earth.
When the game ends, players will conduct a final scoring of each tile -- after which the player controlling the animal with the highest VP total wins the game.

- Amazing game
The game is really amazing. I love complex games and this one sure is. Took us a bit of time to figure it out but managed to play two rounds the first weekend after buying it. It involves some thinking and not so much luck which was perfect. Since the game was a more recent edition, it also has amazing graphics and the cards look really nice. The number of pieces could be overwhelming but it's not that hard after you go through the rules. (Geplaatst op 24-01-2017)
