When you first watched the original Jurassic Park film, if you’re like me, you desperately dreamed of being in that world. Obviously, without the “Whole Being Hunted By Dinosaurs” part, but the idea of being in a world where “Life Found A Way” and dinosaurs still roamed the Earth was invigorating. Unfortunately, technology hasn’t advanced that far (yet), but that isn’t stopping the savvy folks at Mondo Games! They’ve announced a brand new board game that allows players to play as 1 of 4 different factions, InGen, Park Visitors, Raptors, and T-Rex’s, in the thrilling new board game Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene!
Here’s how they’ve broken down the game and the factions:
“Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene” is a 2 to 4 player asymmetrical miniatures board game, for age 14 and up. Choose your faction from the following: InGen, Park Visitors, Raptors or the T. rex. Find items needed for your faction, attack or avoid other dinosaurs, gain experience and customize your faction. With several scenarios and modular environment tiles for players to explore, each faction has unique objectives to complete in an effort to win the game!
Tyrannosaurus Rex: Instinct Objectives
Quick, methodical, and unstoppable best describe the T. rex faction. One thing she is not, though, is quiet. The T. rex’s unrelenting drive makes her highly focused on satisfying her natural instincts… at all costs.
The T. rex can move twice as fast as the other factions and can affect the movement of the other players with her fearsome roar, all while completing her objectives.
Raptors: Seek and Destroy Objectives
The Raptors are a cunning, resourceful, and flexible faction. Their stealth allows them to move quickly and quietly. Unique from all other park dinosaurs, their communication abilities enable them to work together in defending areas in their control, triangulate attacks on humans and park animals, and discover weaknesses in the park’s defenses.
Park Visitors: Survival Objectives
Park Visitors are both in awe of the park and terrified by its destructive nature. Visitors are able to extract the resources they find and use them to complete objective requirements or activate more powerful faction abilities. Highly skilled in their respective fields, each character brings a unique ability to the group as they make their way through the park and accomplish objectives.
Ingen: Park Management Objectives
With systems crashing throughout the park, InGen is desperate to keep it functioning. Somewhat blind to the park’s status, their intimate knowledge of it makes them both helpful and dangerous to dinosaurs and humans alike. A successful InGen player must carefully manage resources and use their unique abilities to help shape the movements of other players.
