Galapagos!

Evolutionary Tabletop Game
Galapagos is a resource management game in which players take on the roles of competing species in a rainforest. Each turn, players will harvest genetic material: the currency with which they may buy mutations to change their species or propagate to increase their presence in the ecosystem. Players must balance strategy, tactics, and guile to compete in the pursuit of several unique win conditions; ultimately to ensure the survival of their genetic footprint.

Why buy this?

This game really shows you the fragility of an ecosystem- particularly in the rainforest.

  • Use genetic material to buy mutations for your creatures!
  • Random mutations might be great, or really bad!
  • The bad ones can be just terrible. Like, no bones. Tragic!

Notes

  • This game contains a premium upgrade called UV Coating that makes the printed components more durable.
  • This game contains laser cut components. Laser cut items will have a slight amount of soot around the edges, which can easily be wiped off; and will have a campfire smell for about a week after you open them.
