Go Extinct! It's Go Fish + Science
A game that is as easy to learn as Go Fish!, teaches kids about clades and the evolutionary relationships between animals, and looks very pretty as well: http://kck.st/1hm5sCx
It plays much like Go Fish! except that instead of sets you collect clades, which are shown on the board. That also adds a twist
to the game, as clades contain other clades (eg. monotremes are a clade within mammals). Pretty clever.
What is also clever is that this game can be played by 5th graders, yet teaches biological concepts that are unfamiliar to most adults (for some reason our understanding of biological relationships is still deeply rooted in 19th century concepts).
In short it's a great game/project, but it needs funding, so if you have a few bucks to spare to help teach kids about evolution (or want to own the game yourself) go to their kickstarter page:kickstarter.com/projects/aemarcy/go-extinct-go-fish-evolved #GoExtinct #sciencesunday #boardgames +ScienceSunday
