A Land that Time Forgot...
Deep in the impenetrable Amazonian wilderness of South America, an unscalable plateau rises from the jungle floor. This strange land has never been trod by Twentieth Century man--until now. Your band of intrepid explorers has made the ascent and now stands at the edge of a veritable scientific treasure trove of unmeasurable value. Before you lies a land teeming in flora and fauna long thought extinct or never even imagined in the mind of man. Strange, terrible bellows reverberate from the dense forest before you until, at last, the very ground shakes to the approach if a prehistoric beast. Truly, riches beyond measure await those who bring proof of these discoveries back to civilization. But behold... the cruel twists of fate or the greed of man has betrayed you. Your tenuous bridge across the gaping chasm is gone! Marooned, the task now becomes one of survival and escape... certainly a frightening enough prospect against the background of such terrible prehistoric monsters, but even now other eyes are watching you from the recesses of the trees.
Dinosaurs of the Lost World is inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's calssic work of fiction: The Lost World. And just as that famous book was the prototype for a whole new genre of "Lost World" literature, Dinosaurs of the Lost World breaks new ground in the field of innovative game design. Players explore this Lost World, ever wary of its horrible inhabitants, in search of sites where they can embark upon adventures yielding great scientific discoveries and means of escape. Each adventure site leads the player through an illustrated trek of great peril and reward. Comic book style story lines give vent to the player's imagination as his adventures are virtually pictured before him in an ongoing narration as he proceeds from frame to frame. Front and back, full-color views of the dinosaurs actually stand erect and loom ominously across the plateau.
Dinosaurs of the Lost World is different from anything you've ever played before and changes with every game you play. No two games are the same. Although simple in concept, the game comes in two versions--a basic game suitable for 8 year-olds, and the full game which will challenge even the most erudite game player while allowing his children to be competitive in the same contest. With a playing time of approximately 90 minutes per game, it is great family fun. Actually three games in one, Dinosaurs of the Lost World also contains an excellent solitaire version for those wishing to play alone--pitting themselves against the forces of prehistoric nature in a race against time.
