Come on a dinosaur expedition!  Dino Dig: Risky Sites is a risk and chance Set Collection game, where players "dig" to find the most valuable dinosaur fossils in a scorpion infested site. Players will be faced with Risk vs Reward decisions, and can use Probability to find their missing pieces. Each player also has a tool box full of helpful equipment to guide them along the way. Will you risk digging for valuable dinosaurs and maybe face scorpions? Or will you play it safe and hope to win by digging for smaller fossils? Find out if you are the best paleontologist!

The Setup

Set up the game by randomly laying out the Dirt cards in a 5x5 grid, 3 layers deep, creating 25 Dig Sites. All players start with 5 Tool cards in their hand that give them special one time use abilities. 

Game Play

On their turn, players can take any 2 actions in any order or combination: move 1 space, dig 1 tile, or play a Tool card. 

Winning the Game

The game ends when a designated number of Dig Sites have been emptied, triggering the end round. Then players add up their score. The more complete a fossil is, the more points it will be worth. But make sure to stay away from scorpions! 

There are 7 different types of dinosaurs to be found of different sizes, along with a few single special cards. The game includes a fold out on the back of the Rule Book to show you where each tile is likely to be found, and how many sets are present for each fossil.

Risks and challenges

All funds raised will go towards manufacturing the game. All the art is already complete, game playtested thoroughly, and a manufacturer ready to mass produce the game.
Our plan is to get the game to you and your expedition team before the holiday season. Barring any major issues, this should be enough time. We’ll communicate with our backers along the way to keep you updated about the process as much as possible. And if you can't be a backer, but would like to follow us, we're on Facebook and Twitter @ZeruaGames.
