Not sure how this forum feels about self-promotion but this is a board game Iíve been working on for about two years.  It is now past the play-testing phase and is scheduled to hit Kickstarter in early June.

DinoGenics is a worker placement game where three to five players compete to create the best dinosaur park. Players take turns deploying Workers to areas of the Mainland where they will collect various resources to enhance their individual parks. Dinosaurs are constructed by collecting sets of matching DNA and exchanging them for dinosaur meeples at the DinoGenics research facility. These dinosaurs must be penned and properly fed each season or you risk having them rampage and kill your visitors.

At the end of six rounds, the park with the most victory points is deemed the winner and acquires enough money and prestige to buy out his or her competitors.


I have just launched a Facebook page and posted a short game play preview on BoardGameGeek.  I would love if anyone would take a look.

Unfortunately not.  When calculating the budget and contacting various production companies I quickly learned how cost prohibitive miniatures are.  They would easily raise my funding goal by an additional 20k-30k and that is if I went with fairly poor quality ones.

Reaper Miniatures?  I wasnít aware they did actual board game printing/construction/packaging etc.  Splitting production between multiple companies isnít in the cards for me right now.
