I received a GM from someone asking me

Hello,

sorry to bother you, but I have a question about Bios: Megafauna.

Which of following cards is NOT included in Tertiary Period Deck:
Sapindales
Ericaceae
Poaceae
Deciduous Gymnosperm
Bromus, Festura

Thank you in advance and all the best,

I haven't played Megafauna yet, though I'm hoping to soon.

So I pulled out my box, broke the wrap on the cards, and started looking.

As well as I can find out, after scouring the rules and the cards, any velociraptor-backed card can be in any of the four period decks or two displays. These are all randomly dealt, right?

I'm finding three types of cards, and furthermore those are explicitly mentioned in the rules, but I'm not finding any identification of one card or another as belonging to a particular period.

Or am I missing something?

In further developments, what the hell do the rules mean when they say, in 3.8,
Quote:
Shuffle the deck and pace cards face-down into four side-by-side decks as indicated below. You may store these in the box lid, which has indicators for these decks.

I don't think mine has any such thing.

Looks like he's talking about the Biome tiles, not the cards.

Yes it does, it's inside the lip of the box - not the lid, as I remember. On the inner sides.

Yes! Thank you. It's the box base, not the box lid. /selfpalm

Okay, as to the tiles ... I considered that, but their backs are all labeled either Mesozoic or Cenozoic. Which tiles are Tertiary tiles?

I had the same gmail.

Deciduous Gymnosperm is in the Mesozoic tiles mixture.
All the rest are present in the Cenozoic tiles.

I guess he's talking about the Cenozoic - it's sometimes split into the tertiary & Quaternary.

And here I thought I in particular was enjoying a(n entirely undeserved) reputation as a Megafauna guru! blush

I'm certainly no Guru on this marvellous game, but the tiles were on hand to look through (ie it wasn't High Frontier Science!).
