Roll dice, draw pens and try not to let any dinosaurs escape!
Each turn players share an expanding dice pool to work through three phases: add dinosaurs and buildings to the park, draw paths connecting attractions to the entrance, and control dinosaurs attempting to escape.
The game ends whenever a player runs out of space in their park, or has had too many dinosaurs escape.
The player with the most fame from dinosaurs/attractions and the fewest penalties from breakouts is the winner!
