"You know, when they dinosaurs. What's it called? Eskavating?" - Brad Leone
Just about everyone I've ever known has wanted, at some point in time or another, to be a paleontologist. I certainly did for the longest time. And that love of dinosaurs has never fully left me. So, while I'm not out in the South Dakota badlands looking for fossils, I can still live the paleontoligst life vicariously through games like Jurassic Parts, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Jurassic Parts is an area enclosure and set collection tile game featuring dinosaur fossils! The game is designed by Kevin Lanzing (Flash Point Fire Rescue) and illustrated by Andrew Bosley (Everdell, Everdell: Pearlbrook, Tapestry, and The River).
This is it! Your first field assignment! Over a dozen dinosaur fossils lie buried in a huge slab of rock. Time and the relentless forces of geology have mixed up the bodies, but that's a small problem for your team. For now, sharpen your chisels and ready that hammer! It's time to get cracking and liberate the precious fossils from their rocky tomb. For the good of science (and your own reputation) be sure to claim the biggest and best fossils for yourself!
The campaign's over 3/4 of the way to its goal with 21 days left to go.
