It has been a banner year for the digital adaptation of physical board games. If you know me, you know I really enjoy them. Being able to play some of the more complex or large board games on my phone and/or tablet and not worrying about clean up or doing the math is great. 🙂

I just found out that NorthStar Games has brought their board game Evolution to Kickstarter. If you read over the page and watch the attached video, you will see that the game is just about done. If you back the Kickstarter you will get the game (beta) in your hands next month (Oct 2017). From what I have seen, it looks really polished and fun.  Yes I have already backed this campaign!

So what is Evolution all about?

“In Evolution, players adapt their species in a dynamic ecosystem where food is scarce and predators lurk. Traits like Hard Shell and Horns will protect your species from Carnivores, while a Long Neck will help them get food that others cannot reach. With over 4,000 ways to evolve your species, every game becomes a different adventure.  Evolution packs a surprising amount of variety for a game with simple rules. The variety comes from the synergies between the trait cards and from the different personalities at the table.” (Board Game Geek)

I have not yet played the board game but hopefully I will be able to within a month. If you are looking for a beautifully designed game with tons of replayability, then I think you should check out this Kickstarter Campaign.  (Thanks from a fellow backer).

Back this campaign today: Kickstarter Page

Here is a nicely done video of the game from
