Darwinauts Coming Soon From Green Couch
Green Couch Games has announced a new tile-laying, worker placement game that will launched on Kickstarter this spring and is expected to be released in the fall. "During the course of the game, a player takes 2 actions on their turn, selecting from 5 possible actions; place an explorer, place a tile, replenish tiles and remove explorers, discover a species, and record a species. Whenever recording a species, a player immediately takes one of 5 possible bonus actions that allow the player to set themselves up for future turns or alter the landscape. Players continue to take turns until The Rift Tile is revealed, making the portal to the new world unstable. Once The Rift begins, players add an additional phase to their turns, taking part in dismantling the landscape they have opened up for exploration."

The Stars Align (What’s Eric Playing): “If you’re looking for a quick, spatial abstract and you want to catch some shooting stars, The Stars Align is not a bad choice!”

Pictomania (iSlaytheDragon): “A unique and wild party/social activity that alleviates the fears of those who can’t draw about participating in this genre of games. Since speed is just as much a priority, let’s just say that the art isn’t always worthy of the masters.”

The River (The Board Game Family): “All in all it’s a fun game that provides a good sense of accomplishment at the end of the game whether or not we win.”
