Darwin’s Choice is a competitive animal building card game.  The goal of the game is to gain Darwin points (victory points) during era’s (turns). The player with the most Darwin Points at the end of the last era is declared the winner!

Players will be able to choose from over 220 animal cards to create their various animal species. These animal species will be placed in vegetation zones that differ strongly in their requirements and the food available. The highest possible adaptiveness of animal species to their vegetation zones not only ensures their survival but is also rewarded with the coveted Darwin points! 

The game can vary from 3 to 4 eras in length. The game is essentially a strategic allocation game in which you must think carefully about how to use your cards during each era. One will have to adapt their animals to the current era even though they may have been successful in the past. This can be done through mutations or migration but making sure they are also watching what other player’s animals are doing.   

There are a large number of possibilities for players to choose from which leads to essential planning and thought into the actions they take each turn.  Only those who can adapt to the ever-changing conditions and situations will survive and leave their mark on history!    

Darwin’s Choice is on is on KICKSTARTER between now and June 5, 2018 and has a funding goal of $19,934.
