Dinosaurs Extinct?

  Dinosaurs Extinct? is an OK game if you're looking for something that is about dinosaurs. The rules approach the edge of my patience for a game intended for young players, but if you take a couple of minutes to read the rules, you'll see it's not as complicated as you feared.
  The game has a really big die that's fun to roll, and neat flip-over cards that show dinosaur skeletons when you suffer damage. Each player tries to get his little dinosaur marker into the 21st century while avoiding disasters such as the Ice Age, tornadoes and volcanoes. If you teach them to play first, kids who can count but not read could play it by themselves.
  For ages 5 and older, 2-4 players. Cost: About $20.

Our rating: 3 out of 5 stars
