With two real Jurassic park/World fans in the house, I was very happy to receive this game. At first I was a little shocked when I opened the box of Jurassic World –The Boardgame, not because of the dino’s, but because of the amount of cards and boards contained in the box. From this you also immediately notice that it is a game for 12 years and older, because after reading the rules of the game I must say quite frankly that I did not understand much of it. Fortunately, our oldest son caught on to the game right away and after playing a game, we all got it.

Be prepared that the cards are all written in English. Which, by the way, are very easy to understand, because the tasks are clearly described.

How to start

You all choose a profession to perform in the park, but choose carefully, because you need each other to complete this game successfully. The first turn begins, you see exactly how many dice you may roll on which mission and try to execute your ‘box’ as well as possible. After everyone has had their turn, the danger clock shifts and you must throw above a certain number to avoid the danger.

If you throw lower, you must move the danger meter and take a card whose instructions you must immediately carry out. For example, dinosaurs can escape… If you complete the mission you chose at the beginning, you win the game!

Choose your mission in Jurassic World - The Boardgame and make sure you get the right dinosaurs in place in the park

A game where you have to think carefully

Jurassic Wold –The Boardgame is a game where you have to think very carefully, about the steps you take, the choices you make, but you also just have to be lucky enough to roll the dice. Because you play together, you help each other, encourage each other and share in the happiness, but also in the excitement when dei dino’s break out. It is a super fun, active game, where many afternoons can be filled.
