    Dinosaur Island: Rawr 'n Write brings a new twist to the popular Dinosaur Island game by streamlining gameplay and incorporating the roll-and-write trend. Retaining the iconic amber dice and theme park building mechanics, Rawr 'n Write delivers an engaging, challenging, and accessible experience for players within a shorter playtime.

    Streamlined Gameplay:

    • Simplified into three main actions: roll and draft dice, activate actions, and run tours
    • Quick pace with six draft/action phases and three chances to run your park
    • Strategic depth through resource management, hiring specialists, and building attractions

    Rawr 'n Write simplifies Dinosaur Island's gameplay into three main actions: roll and draft dice, use dice as workers to activate actions, and run tours in your theme park for points and excitement. The game maintains a quick pace while offering strategic depth through resource management, hiring specialists, and building attractions.

    Polyomino Puzzles:

    • Spatial puzzle with park grid
    • Draw polyomino shapes to represent dinosaur paddocks, attractions, buildings, and roads
    • Make strategic decisions on park layout to maximize bonuses and points

    A major component of Rawr 'n Write is the spatial puzzle presented by the park grid. Players draw polyomino shapes to represent dinosaur paddocks, attractions, buildings, and roads, making strategic decisions on park layout to maximize bonuses and points.

    Challenges and Scoring:

    • Manage threat levels and security
    • Scoring based on various triggers and bonuses
    • Reward players for carefully planning their park and actions

    Managing threat levels and security remains a crucial part of the game, as failure to do so can lead to disastrous consequences for your park. Scoring is a mix of various triggers and bonuses, rewarding players for carefully planning their park and actions.

    Rulebook and Learning Curve:

    • Dense but comprehensive 23-page rulebook
    • Assumes no prior knowledge of the base game
    • Quick-start guide or die face distribution information would be helpful additions

    The rulebook for Rawr 'n Write is dense at 23 pages, but it is comprehensive and assumes no prior knowledge of the base game. A quick-start guide or round overview and die face distribution information would have been helpful additions to aid planning.

    A Worthy Successor:

    Dinosaur Island: Rawr 'n Write successfully streamlines and condenses the base game into a more accessible and quicker experience without sacrificing strategic depth. Although not the lightest roll-and-write game, it offers a fun and engaging challenge for fans of the genre or the original Dinosaur Island. Rawr 'n Write is a great addition to any collection and a worthy successor to its predecessor.

    Excellent Roll & Write - a new favourite

    Once it was on the table, I played three games straight as solo and every one was different.
    It is a game you can take out when you have less than an hour to spare.
    Most enjoyable, thoughtful, 'puzzely' game.
