How To Play - Dinosaur Dig - Game Rules
Dinosaur Dig Game you will learn some fascinating facts about the
pre-historic world by answering trivia questions gathered
from the American Museum of Natural History!



Object of the Game:
To be the first player to get all the dig supplies needed to work an excavation checked off on your dinosaur dig checklist, and to collect all the bones needed to complete the dinosaur on your dinosaur card.

Before you Begin:
The 32 dinosaur bones are placed on the board in compartments in the dig areas, as shown on the back page.

Each player claims a playing figure (you can choose if you want to be a boy or a girl) and a Dig Supply checklist.  When playing a 2-player game, each player takes 4 dinosaur cards.  When playing a 3 or 4 player game, each player takes 2 dinosaur cards.  (if playing with 3 players, the extra card can be set aside).  Players will need pencils to check off their Dig Supplies.

The playing figures are placed at the start of the game board.

The Dinosaur Dig, Dinosaur Trading and Dinosaur Wild Cards are shuffled separately and placed where indicated.

Playing the Game:
The player who is the tallest starts the game.  On your turn, roll the die and move your playing piece in either direction the number of spaces indicated.

Dig Supply Spaces - if you land on a space that pictures on of the supplies you need, you can make a check mark next to that supply on your checklist.

- If you land on this space and already have this supply checked off, your turn is over.

- It is the next player's turn.

Dinosaur Dig Trivia spaces - if you land on one of these spaces, choose a Dinosaur Trading card and follow the directions on the card.  These cards can help you or they may help your opponents!

- It is the next player's turn.

Dinosaur Wild spaces - if you land on one of these spaces, choose a Dinosaur Wild Card and follow the directions on the card.  These cards almost always help you!

- It is the next player's turn.

Other Spaces on the board are self-explanatory.  Follow the directions on the space.

Winning the game:
The first player to claim all the bones needed to fill in his/her dinosaur card, and to check off all the Dig Supplies on the checklist proceeds to the finish line, the American Museum of Natural History, where the bones they collected will be exhibited!

You must roll the exact number to land on this space.

This player wins the game!

Variation of play for younger players:
For an easier game for the youngest dinosaur fan, omit the dinosaur trivia questions.  When a player lands on the "dinosaur dig" space, he/she can take any bone from any dig space in the center of the game board.  In this game, players only fill out one dinosaur card.  The winner is the first player to complete his/her Dinosaur Card, and checklist and get to the finish line.
