In Tiny Epic Dinosaurs, breakthroughs in modern science have dinosaurs
and humans existing side by side. This has allowed for a lucrative
industry. Dino Ranching! Independent ranchers have begun farming
dinosaurs to sell to the highest bidders for use in their high thrill
theme parks. You are one of those ranchers. Do you have what it takes to
out ranch your opponents and operate the most successful dinosaur farm!?
Tiny Epic Dinosaurs is a 45 minute, 1-4 player game of dinosaur
ranching, worker-placement and resource management. It features classic
euro game mechanics with unique twists that portray the dangers of
farming these prehistoric beasts.
In Tiny Epic Dinosaurs, players control a team of ranchers and will be
acquiring, breeding and selling dinosaurs. The game is played over 6
rounds. With each round consisting of several short phases.
In phase one, players will harvest the resources from their farm that
are not being consumed by dinosaurs.
In phase two, players will put their ranchers to work. This phase has
ranchers wrangling and buying new dinosaurs to farm, improving their
farm’s security and supplies, vying for high dollar contracts, and
researching technologies and unique dinosaur breeds. These unique
dinosaur breeds introduce a large variety of special benefits players
can utilize to separate themselves from their competition.
In phase three, ranchers return to finish their day’s work at the farm.
In phase four, players arrange their ranch, making sure their ranch is
suitable for the types of dinosaurs they have.
Phase five is the feeding phase, and every dinosaur MUST be fed.
Dinosaurs that don’t eat will escape, posing a grave threat to your
enclosures’ security and your other dinosaurs.
Phase six is for breeding. For each pair of matching dinosaurs you have
properly enclosed, you’ll welcome a new dinosaur to your farm.
At the end of the game, players will receive victory points for each
dinosaur they have, public and private contracts they acquired and for
their research developments. The player with the most victory points,
wins the game.
