This game is both beautiful and fun. My brothers and I have played this every weekend since I bought it almost a month ago and I can tell we'll be playing this for a long time. There are a lot of scenario cards and trait cards and so many card combinations of them to explore. Each game is different because of the many card combinations: you never know what species the other players will make and the scenario cards set up or change the environment at two different points later in the game. You'll really have to adapt, evolve, and be on your toes! I'm also happy I decided to buy this deluxe version: the acrylic fish tokens, score bags, and sleeves make playing even better. I particularly love the printed sleeves. Highly recommended!
Haven't played it yet due to the pandemic but I love the components and the theme. Can't wait to play it with my game group!
