Dinosaur World is Pandasaurus Games’ Next Massive Board Game
Dinosaur World is the upcoming follow-up to Pandasuarus Games' hit board game Dinosaur Island. The Kickstarter launches September 22.
Dinosaur Island is the game that truly put publisher Pandasaurus Games on the map in the board game industry. It is a massive, brightly colored epic from the mind behind Dead of Winter and has sold more than 40,000 copies. Next month, the hit game gets a follow-up with Dinosaur World. Check it out.

Of course, we don’t know much about the game just yet. Outside of the tweet above, all Pandasaurus has given us is a September 22 date for the start of Dinosaur World‘s Kickstarter. That said, there are a few things we can probably expect from what will surely be a massive board game experience.
The original game was all about developing your own dinosaur park. You have to manage your park’s ability to drive excitement with not killing guests. After all, no one’s going to visit a park full of boring herbivores. Though, they also probably won’t go if they have to risk being eaten by a pack of velociraptors. It’s all about finding that balance.
Dinosaur World could either build on that system or take it in a completely different direction. As much as I’d love to just see a bigger, better Dinosaur Island, there’s a certain appeal to the idea of a band of heroes fighting back against the dino threat. A war game might not be everyone’s first thought for a Dinosaur Island sequel, but I’d be down to check it out.
We’ll know much more in the coming weeks. Dinosaur World is set to launch on Kickstarter on September 22. The team is sure to slowly start trickling out details. Stay tuned to DualShockers for further updates.
