On each turn, you dig fossils from the dig site, initiate trades with other players, take a bonus dig if you manage to complete a skeleton, and rearrange your fossil cards so that all but three are visible to other players. Random events, such as erosion, may force you to alter your strategy.
Fossil Canyon uses a unique jigsaw-puzzle scoring method, where each skeleton added to your museum is represented by a puzzle piece with a length proportional to its value. No adding victory points or moving pawns on a board; the length of your puzzle-museum indicates your standing in the game. The puzzle pieces have a bonus dinosaur scene on the back from renowned paleoartist Franco Tempesta.
Fossil Canyon is a family-oriented STEM game. Kids love the dinosaur theme, “digging” through the cards, and puzzle scoring. Adults enjoy the strategic elements of the game, quick pace, and beautifully-illustrated cards. And parents appreciate the educational content from the Field Museum.
Also included are rules for the cooperative/solo variant Cretaceous Creek for 1-4 players.
