I just recently played a game of Evo with friends who own a German edition of this game. Then I read info about the game here on bgg and was baffled. There is a mutant gene? There was no mutant gene showing up in our entire game. As I feel this is highly improbable: Is it possible that the German edition doesn't include mutant genes? Plus the tiebreaker when tails had equal length was rolling dice. On bgg it seems that the original rules state the player with the smaller amount of dinos goes first.

Does anyone have infos on this? Are there major differences between different (language) editions? What editions are there anyway? If I consider buying a copy online (ebay or marketplace) what details do I have to ask for to know which edition I'm dealing with?

I don't have the rules in front of me, but the mutation gene definitly is in the german edition (makes it cheaper to buy other parts).
I think the die is the tie-breaker, when two players have the same tail-length *and* the same number of dinos.

Mutant Gene is the rarest, maybe you just did not drew it.

Initiative is due to: longest tail, if tied fewer dinos alive, if still tie random roll.
