End of 4th turn recap:

We moved to the "experimental" two actions per turn variant.


Red

1) purchase and play "P" DNA from Lower Display
- the event brings in 2 new tiles: one is a Volcano with Greenhouse Shift up to 1600ppm, meaning all empty hexes are now water
2) expand animal bringing in the crocodile figure as predator in homeland, inheriting M and P
- it wins the predator contest and the immigrant predator there is sent to tarpit


Green

1) Genetic Drift - stole from Orange
2) purchase and play "B" DNA from Lower Display
- two new biomes enter the Jet Stream latitude


Orange

1) buy the genotype on leftmost of lower display and put it in fossil record
- the resulting event was a Milankovich which replaced 2 herbivore biomes
2) increase size


White

1) expand into a new specie (tigers?) to predate his own bisons (?)
2) genetic drift, taking from orange
