What People Say About This Game?
Ho proposto questo gioco a un gruppo di 3 bambine di 6 anni. È stato bello vederle ragionare insieme sulle possibili soluzioni e ancora più bello quando, prima di andar via, mi hanno chiesto di giocare ancora. Da master non ho avuto difficoltà a seguire il gioco, parti grafiche ben fatte e accattivanti.
Meet our team of young paleontologists who have traveled into the future to fertilize a new species of Dinosaur egg--Shortysaurus! 🦖
We played it last Friday. The kids enjoyed it, overall. The dialogue was good, I did improvise on some parts of it to make it more engaging. We played it with a group of 4 (aged 6-11). The older kids were more engaged than the younger ones. They did a phenomenal job working together to solve the different puzzles like finding and cleaning the ancient fossils, and putting together a broken chain of DNA to uncover the new dino! If we play it again in the future, I would probably use some props like a fake egg or a fossil to excavate.
They really enjoyed it!
My three boys aged 6, 7 and 11 did it and I read. They really enjoyed it but I did feel there was a lot of reading and it took a while to cut out all the pieces which then made it difficult to hold their attention. Aside from that – it was great and the 6 year old has been asking to do another one.

Project Dino is an interactive and immersive educational game designed for kids. The game involves solving puzzles, finding hidden clues, and learning about dinosaurs in a fun and exciting way.
Sure, you can print it in black and white! Color doesn’t have any role in this game, except that the art comes to the fore when is color printed.
It can be played anywhere you want! No matter how big or small is the place, every space can be used 🙂 You can even set it up outside!
Yes! The moderator plays an important role in the whole experience!
No, it is a fully tactile and off-screen game! But, in order to save on cartridge and paper, we recommend opening the “Cheat Sheet” from any device that has a PDF viewer!
The game itself has 21 illustrations that must be printed! You’ll also get many posters and invitations that are optional for printing and use. Each printer is different and so is each cartridge, but for one copy of the game, you won’t use much of any cartridge!
The concept of this game is based on teamwork and brainstorming, which brings so much fun. Every child can try solving the puzzles individually, but if you have a chance to team up at least two kids (or kid and adult), it would be more interesting for them.
Regular home/office (Letter or A4) paper is just fine. You can use some thicker paper, but don’t go more than 215 gsm (paper weight). Glossy paper can also enrich the art, but that’s optional.
The basic setup for Project Dino should take around 15 minutes.
No special equipment is needed. You’ll just need a printer to print out the game materials, as well as basic stationery such as pencils, paper glue, and scissors.
The game materials are designed for single-use due to the interactive nature of the game, such as cutting out paper elements. However, the digital files can be reprinted if you wish to play the game again with other kids.
