Dino is a game with dinos in different sizes. A smaller dino is afraid of the next larger one, but the largest dino is afraid of the smallest one. A dino who is afraid of another dino always should make room for this other dino. When young dinos come out of their eggs, they have no fear however and are glad to walk together with an adult dino of different breed. It’s the dino mother’s task to get her young back and bring him into safety into his own nest. The player (dino mother) who first succeeds to bring all her children back into the nest, wins the game.


Dino is a game with a clear theme. The game mechanism however, based on a clear status hierarchy, is broadly applicable.


The game is finished. Prototypes are available in a version for 3-4 players and a version for 3-6 players. The version for 3-6 players requires some more material as mentioned above of course.
