概要:

我们 review 达尔文's Choice, an evolution themed board game published by Treeceratops Games. 在 达尔文's Choice, players are being masters of evolution and creating new creatures in the different biomes.

由于这种生命的斗争,无论任何形式的变化,无论是微小的变化,无论是何种原因引起的变化,如果它在某种程度上对任何物种的个体都是有利的,那么它与其他有机物和外部自然的无限复杂的关系将趋向于。保存该个体,通常会由其后代继承。

-Charles 达尔文, 上 the Origin of Species, 1859 

达尔文's Choice 我们 预览 the prototype for 达尔文’s Choice by Treeceratops Games back in May 2018 for its Kickstarter campaign. As a prototype, the game was beautiful, the rules were complex, and the theme was given the treatment it deserved. Now that the game has been released (and has an upcoming Kickstarter for an expansion), we’re conducting a full review of the base game to help you decide if it’s worthy of a next-step expansion treatment.

达尔文’s Choice is a card based, evolution themed, creature building game where players evolve or migrate their species in response to the demands of the biomes or environmental events. 达尔文’s Choice is for 2-6 players and takes about 45 minutes to play. It plays best with 2 or 6 players

游戏概述:

A player wins 达尔文’s Choice by having the most 达尔文 Points at the end of the game. The game is set up with several card decks (Animal Cards, Event Cards, Continental Cards, and Biome Cards) and four Biomes in the middle of the table. Each biome has minimum requirements (climbing, speed, etc.) for the species that (will) reside there.

达尔文's Choice Gameplay
这种可怕的进化过程满足了居住在热带雨林中的要求。

游戏中有四个回合,每个回合分为三个阶段。

行动阶段,玩家举手并创造或变异物种;或在物种充分适应的环境中迁移物种。

评估阶段 has players verify if the environmental requirements of the biomes are met and ultimately die off, eat, or be eaten. Unsurprisingly, food availability is limited in different biomes and food eating order is resolved in decreasing order of adaptiveness. Species that survive this process are awarded 达尔文 points as are those that are most adapted in a biome and those that are the most adapted across all the biomes.

最后阶段是 过渡阶段 战场动摇了事件卡,美国大陆航空卡和生物群落卡从中央甲板中拉出并解决。然后,当每个生物群落发生改变(如果没有完全改变)时,将为它们重新分配食物,并且物种将根据其适应新环境的程度再次以降序获得食物。

达尔文's Choice Game Experience
这是我们特别喜欢的一种滑稽的怪兽。

游戏体验:

达尔文’s Choice试图解决您的游戏桌(可能是大多数游戏桌)上进化的复杂性,并且确实可以提供。与其他类似主题的游戏一样,游戏的中心机制是创造,迁移和进化物种的扑克牌。游戏中的其他所有内容都可以激发并告知这些动作。从表面上看,这并不是革命性的。但是,这些决定的实际执行是非常独特的。

达尔文's Choice Cards
事件是唯一的,可以是即时的也可以是永久的。

有250张动物卡,每张动物卡上都有不同的动物身体部位,这额外的附属物的食物成本,以及生物在不同环境中获得的适应性收益。这些身体部位在与其他身体部位的连接处也有小的白点,称为停靠站点。头,腿和尾只有一个停靠点,但是根据身体的大小,可以有两个到五个停靠点。由于对“开放式”停靠点没有任何惩罚(每只动物必须至少有一个头和一个身体),因此可能的物种数量之多确实令人印象深刻(不,我不会做数学)。

在桌子上,最终出现在玩家面前的东西类似于您可能长大的那些螺旋装订的怪物活页簿。也许只有我一个人,但是即使增加身体部位需要该物种的额外食物需求,我还是很难离开对接站,并且当我轮到我的对手看着对手时,我不像小孩子那样咯咯地笑。将虾头放在任何地面上,都不要笑。通常,游戏中的许多笑声暗示着某些策略或复杂性最小的轻巧事物,但事实并非如此。

达尔文's Choice Animal
物种可能会变得富有想象力,但是它们越复杂,就需要越多的食物。

Event Deck和不断变化的Biomes鼓励在点上提供更多战术游戏玩法,但玩家不一定要放弃为自己的物种生存而制定的任何长期计划。 Event Deck由即时和永久效果组成,因此即使景观总是在变化,它也不是没有成果。相对较大的手型(10张牌),玩家既可以进行短期适应,以使他们的物种生存下来,也可以增加适应性的计划,以最大化其达尔文积分。

All of this is to say that 达尔文’s Choice is an intelligent, complex, and most importantly fun foray into the evolution themed tabletop game. The artwork is beautiful; the game design is fun, intelligent and streamlined; and to top it off there is tons of replay value.

最后的想法:

在 达尔文’s Choice, the balance between the tactical and strategic decisions that players must make do not feel repetitive or as manic as other implementations of similar mechanisms. There is a learning curve, but the theme lends itself to the game design (and vice versa) making this an easier first play to introduce entry-level gamers to than most medium weight games out there.

Not much has evolved (or needed to evolve) from the prototype we 预览 before Treeceratops’s last Kickstarter. I loved the game then, and I still love it now. If you, like me, enjoy the evolution theme, making monsters, or the flipbooks of yesteryear, 达尔文’s Choice deserves your time. Just make sure you have the tablespace.

最终分数: 4星–进化纸牌游戏的进化形态。

Treeceratops于11月5日启动了另一个Kickstarter广告系列,以扩展到名为“ Before and After”的达尔文之选。在这一扩展中,有240种新的动物卡片,其中包括恐龙,史前物种和濒危物种。 Kickstarter上还包括一本百科全书,其中包含有关游戏中动物物种的信息。更好的是,整个游戏制作将实现碳中和。查看他们的Kickstarter,了解有关如何为优秀的开发人员和伟大的事业提供支持的更多详细信息!
