Product Description

If Charles Darwin were alive today, he'd be celebrating his 200th birthday, probably by killing someone and eating her brains because he'd have to be a zombie to live that long. Yes, 2009 is cause for a Darwin celebration by the media and those publishing games that draw inspiration from his work, such as (in case you hadn't already guessed) Darwinci.

Darwinci pulls together the research of Charles Darwin and Leonardo da Vinci, presenting players with all manner of various bones that they then attempt to assemble in various combinations. The bones are auctioned before players can get their hands on them, then the players must draw on their artistic skills to put those bones together.

The first edition of this game is limited to 1,000 copies, each of which includes a special "W├╝rfelstab" -- a four-sided dice stick -- with metal inlaid for the dots. Later editions will have printed dots, a far inferior choice to metal and not one that will withstand the coarse breeding of generations, if my research proves correct.
