  • It is possible that you cannot play a blue card because you have no access to the sea.
  • It is possible that nobody can play a blue card because all sea regions are occupied.

Four-player Partnership Game

As a game variant, players sitting opposite each other may form a partnership.

All standard game rules apply, but each partnership uses a double-length score board by placing two regular score boards together.

Both partners apply their individual scores to their joint score board. When no further tile can be placed on the board, the partnership with the better score wins - in other words, the partnership with the lowest counter loses.

No communication is allowed between the partners during play. Alternatively, players may agree open communication. …




The Raptor player

The player can split his action points as he wishes between the mother and the babies that are awake.

A raptor can never move onto or move through a space where there is a fire token.

Only active raptors (represented by figurines that are standing up) can perform actions.

A player does not have to use all of their actions points. In fact, they could decide to use no action points at all.

Action points can be spent in 5 different ways:




Whether you are Raptor or Scientist…

Playing your cards of value 1 and 2 at the right time (when your opponent plays a card of value 3 to 5) can give you an advantage...

That way you will get rid of your "weak" cards without offering too many action points to your opponent.
