Comments: My edition is from 2001. The designer is Philippe Keyaerts.

One turn of the game is divided into 6 phases. For phases 3, 4 and 5, only proceed with the next phase when all players have completed their actions for the current phase.
1. Initiative: Determine the order in which players will complete the rest of the turn.
2. Climate: Determine the current climate for the rest of the turn.
3. Movement: The Dinos move and fight.
4. Births: New Dinos appear.
5. Survival and Mutation: Some Dinos die, and survivors receive mutation points.
6. Meteor & Evolution: Move the meteor one space closer to impact. If the meteor has not yet hit the planet, players bid for genes.

A light and fun game.
