6482 Evolution w/Flight and Climate Expansions - CANCELLED, GM: Norman Leon, 0 players, No XP/Simple, Friday 2p-5p. In Evolution, players adapt their species in a dynamic ecosystem where food is scarce and carnivores lurk. Traits like Hard Shell and Horns will protect your species from Carnivores, while Long Neck will help Herbivores acquire food others cannot reach. With over 4,000 ways to evolve your species, every game becomes a different evolution. The variety comes from the synergies between trait cards and player personalities at the table. Some players thrive on creating Carnivores to wreak havoc on their fellow players. Others prefer to stay protected and mind their own business with Herbivores. Evolution encourages both play styles and provides many paths to evolutionary "King of the Jungle" victory. Evolution: Flight, an expansion for Evolution, introduces avian species into the gaming ecosystem. Now your species can swoop on unsuspecting prey from above, fly away from predators, or soar to new locations when food is scarce. Will your species ability to fly propel you to new heights? Or will it bring your downfall? Play and find out! Evolution: Climate changes Evolution from a two-dimensional game dealing with the threat of Starvation and Carnivores, into a three-dimensional game dealing with the threat of Starvation, Carnivores, and Climate effects while increasing the vividness of the game's evolutionary theme.

6481 Caverna: The Cave Farmers, GM: Norman Leon, 7 players, No XP/Simple, Saturday 2p-7p. Caverna: The Cave Farmers is a worker-placement productivity game with a focus on farming and mining. You're the leader of a Dwarven family that lives in a cave in the mountains. You begin with a farmer and spouse, and each member of the family represents an action the player can take per turn. Together, cultivate the forest in front of your cave and dig deeper into the mountain. Furnish your cave as dwellings for your offspring, as well as working spaces for small enterprises. It's up to you how much ore to mine. You need ore to forge weapons that allow you to go on expeditions to gain additional actions and items. While digging through the mountain, you may come across water sources and discover ruby mines that increase your wealth. Next to your cave, increase your wealth further with agriculture. Cull the forest to sow fields and fence in pastures to hold your farm animals. Expand your family while running your ever-growing farm! After 12 turns, the Dwarven player with the most efficiently-developed home board wins "Lifestyles Of The Rich & Famous"!
