This is a very abstract game pasted onto a somewhat bizarre rendition of geological history. Each player controls a species running rampant on Pangea as the supercontinent begins to break up, and dominating a particular region (in the ecological sense) grants bonus card abilities to that species. I can't exactly explain how these nonspecific species have the Power of Sky Magic or Fire, as a scientist, so the theme is a tough nut to swallow. The underlying mechanics, however, are interesting and enjoyable to play with three or more players (I don't recommend two!).
