Fossilis is another excellent family game from Kids Table Board Gaming with high-quality production. This game makes you feel like an archeologist sifting through the sands of time with its chunky tiles and tiny dinosaur bones. Not only that, the first page of the rulebook even highlights the skills young gamers will take away while playing this game. Throw in the fact that each of the 33 dinosaur cards has fun facts, and it’s easy to understand why Fossilis is one of our recommended games!

Game Overview

An incredible new dinosaur graveyard has been discovered, and if the early findings are any indication, it could be a treasure trove of fossils and bones like the world has never seen! In Fossilis, 2 to 5 players become paleontologists working the dig site with shovels, whisk brooms, and chisels looking for a find that could make their career. Fossilis features a unique 3D dig site board, with recessed pockets filled with dinosaur bones, and thick, chunky terrain tiles that cover the dig site. Players have to use strategy, timing, and a little bit of luck if they want to make the best discoveries, get their name in all the paleontology journals, and of course, win the game.
