On the Origin of Species

Climb aboard HMS Beagle and retrace Darwin's path through the Galapagos Islands in On the Origins of Species, an adventuresome board game inspired by the iconic scientific journey. Throughout your expedition, up to four naturalists take turns investing in research to arrive at new discoveries. Research earns knowledge about habitats and adaptive species for future use; discovery draws upon research to theorize how the local flora and fauna suit their habitat. Make advances to earn points and move your ship closer to its destination. Struggle to win while learning the mechanics behind the struggle for life.

Contents: 1 game board, 1 wooden ship, 4 score markers, 32 observation cubes, 3 objective markers, 30 species tiles, 83 cards, rule book.
