Can Your Species Darwin This?: A Sneak Peak at ‘Evolution’ from Northstar Games

EvolutionNorthstar Games is known for their party and family games so it was a bit of a surprise when Luke Warren got in contact a few months ago to inform me the company was developing their first strategy title. Now the game, Evolution, is launching on Kickstarter to bring the card driven game to market. In Evolution, players will look to create species of animals and proceed to play cards in which to create traits, within the species, to increase its chances for survival to the end scoring.

Each player begins with a single species card (which mainly tracks the size and population of those animals), a Food Bag where the tokens for the food your species have eaten will be placed, and a hand four Trait cards.

Evolution Scavenger CardEvolution is played in a series of rounds, which are then broken into four rounds:

Deal Cards – Simply enough each player receives three Trait cards as well as an extra card for each species they control. You aren’t saddled with only one species throughout the game as you’ll bring new species to the table while others will go extinct.

Place Food – The Trait cards not only indicate a unique aspect of a species but also holds a number in the lower corner which can be used to fill the community food source, known as the Watering Hole. During this phase everyone chooses a single card from their hand and places it, face down, on the Watering Hole. These cards will be revealed later to determine how much Food will be available this round.

Play Cards – In turn all players will, one by one, have an opportunity to play those Trait cards in their hand in a variety of ways: Add a Trait to one of their existing species, increase the size or population of a species, or create an entirely new species.

Species may each have up to three Traits (Traits can’t be duplicated within a species) and these can run the gamut from increasing the defensive ability of the animal, make the species more dangerous to prey, providing bonuses for feeding the animal, or even making the species carnivores; species are initially omnivorous.

On the Origin of Species

by TodayInHistory

Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species, published on 24 November 1859, is a seminal work of scientific literature, considered to be the foundation of evolutionary biology. Its full title was On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. For the sixth edition of 1872, the short title was changed to The Origin of Species. Darwin's book introduced the theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose through a branching pattern of evolution and common descent

Darwin and the theory of evolution

by imtoocrazy

Does not say we come from monkeys. I don't know about you but neither of my parents are monkeys they are humans. Evolution is about animals that evolve into different species. if we evolved from Rhesus Monkeys as the op stated they used Rhesus monkeys, then Rhesus Monkeys would be extinct right now according to evolution. Humans evolved from a common ancester with the Great Apes. this ancestor is extinct.... species evolve in order to adapt and survive so the original ancestor of any species is extinct otherwise they would not have to change to survive. Please pay attention in a basic biology class or read up on the subject

November 24, 1859 : Origin of Species is published
On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, a groundbreaking scientific work by British naturalist Charles Darwin, is published in England. Darwin's theory argued that organisms gradually evolve through a process he called "natural selection." In natural selection, organisms with genetic variations that suit their environment tend to propagate more descendants than organisms of the same species that lack the variation, thus influencing the overall genetic makeup of the species.
The idea of organic evolution was not new
