The asymmetrical tabletop game will let 2-4 players take control of different factions in the park while they strive to reach their goals. Options include working in the field of science as the head of InGen operations, being a cunning and resourceful raptor as you discover weaknesses in the park’s defense system, to being a guest of John Hammond and running around terrified looking for your own resources to survive.
Mondo Games Creative Director Luke Byers spoke of their focus with a Jurassic Park board game.
“In our approach to “Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene”, we took many of our favorite elements of a traditional dungeon crawl style board game and spliced them with one of our favorite films of all time. The goal was to create something truly unique and incredibly fun to play.”
The box top will be on display at Mondo’s booth #435 at San Diego Comic-Con for attendees to see in person, along with special Jurassic Park patches that will be handed out to those who stop by and visit the booth.
Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene will be available in the Fall on Mondo’s website and in local stores.
