The crowdfunding campaign of On the Origin of Species has begun on Verkami, a board game by the publisher Mont Taber in which you will have to play an assistant of Charles Darwin to help him in the discovery about the theory of evolution.
The game takes us to the Galapagos Islands, where Charles Darwin studied the habitat of the species, discovering its natural history, which served as the basis of the theory of evolution.
In the same way in the game you will have to play Research actions to obtain knowledge about air, land or aquatic habitat. Or you can use this knowledge gained to invest in discoveries, which allows you to play new animal species to obtain victory points, character cards and objects that will help us to consolidate the theory of evolution.
When the ship Beagle finishes its journey through New Zealand leaving the archipelago, the game ends and the player who has obtained more points of evolution will be the winner.
A game created by Gerard Ascensi and Ferran Renalias, who propose us in this playful journey on exploration and zoology, where without a doubt what most strikes me are the cards of animals drawn by Amelia Sales, which remind me of the pictures you can find in the best documentary books about animals.
On the verkami campaign, the game is also accompanied of Lusitania, another tabletop game setted in Roman Empire.
