Evolution: The Beginning


Evolution: The Beginning is a stand-alone game.

With hundreds of ways to evolve your species, every game unfolds in a beautifully unique way. Gather around the table and see who best adapts to the changing world around them!

What’s in the box?

  • Watering hole
  • 160 food tokens
  • 88 cards
  • Five food bags

How to play:

Each turn consists of four phases:

  1. Gather: place food on the watering hole and get your cards.
  2. Adapt: play your cards.
    There are three things you can do in the Adapt phase: create another species, add population to your species or add traits to your species.
  3. Eat: feed your species.
    There are two ways to get food, either from the watering hole or from another species (only if your species is a carnivore). Every species that doesn’t eat starves, a species goes extinct when it has no more Population cards.
  4. Score: score points for Food eaten.

When the deck runs out, shuffle the discard pile to create a new Deck. Then play until the player to the right of the starting player finishes their next turn. At this point, every player has had the same number of turns, and that’s the end of the game.

The player with the highest score is the winner!
