My thoughts after playing Tiny Epic Dinosaurs by @gamelyngames
Dinos, dinos, dinos. In all shapes, but not all sizes. These dinos are small. Tiny, but epic, just like the box itself and everything else within. This is a true and pure worker placement game with resource management. The art is colorful and cute, but the game is tight, and can sometimes be unforgiving. When you place your rancher you need to plan two steps ahead and there are plenty of different options every turn.
The rancher placement reminds me of Honey Buzz, where you can occupy the same spot by paying additional ranchers. This is a nice, strategic element in the game. There’s also a big rancher that counts as two ranchers, that you can use to occupy already taken action spots.
It’s a tiny epic game, and as I mentioned everything is tiny and demands some gentle fingers. I had sometimes difficulty organizing everything in my ranch, due to my inherited clumsiness.
Everything about this game is high quality and offers tons of strategy and high replayability.
– Beautiful components
– High strategy
– High replayability
– Everything you need to know how to play the game is written on the game board
– everything is tiny, even the text on the cards
– The game board is divided into four cards, and can sometimes move across the table.
