Just seeing if anyone has a teaching guide for this game. I'm fairly poor at trying to discern what the minimum needed to teach is in order to play a game, and I tend to practically just read the rule book when I don't have a guide...which seems a particularly poor way to teach this game (kind of have the same problem with High Frontier, but I digress)

I may write one up. I've taught this game many many times over the last few days and could probably whip up something pretty simple.

That would be so helpful, Cole - while the Example-of-Play gives the basic facts, it doesn't give the reasons why things happen nor cover all the bases.

For example, on Turn 3 it doesn't state why the Digging Claw costs 3 Genes (because it's now the 4th card from the left, after Dog-face purchased a card the prior turn), nor does it mention that the Dino-croc player places 1 Gene token on each of the 3 cards to the left.

Cross-referencing the Example-of-play helps to learn the game, but a teaching guide would great (thnx).

So quite some time has passed since Dec 25, 2011. Did this happen?

I do not think so... I am actually looking for a teaching guide or even a video of game play because the rulebook leaves me with a lot of questions.
