Board Game Capital's Review:
Fossil Find GameWe certainly haven't played every game out there but we have seen quite a few games in our day. A board game that uses dominoes as its main gaming component is not one we've ever seen before. The dominoes are used more like cards and aren't exactly used to make connected domino rows. We were excited to see this game and were so impressed when we received it.

This is a high quality board game with high quality dominoes, storage box and game board. Just the weight of the game alone makes the game feel impressive. With the thickness of the storage box and game board, this game will last a long time. Even the graphics look amazing with the custom dominoes. This leads us to our next topic - the theme of the game.

It is obvious that Fossil Find was not just thrown together overnight. We loved how well the theme was integrated into the game. The grave site, the archeology site, lose artifact spots and even natural disasters make this game feel awesome. While setting up the game takes a few minutes, once you're done the game looks pretty cool.

Fossil Find GameGame play is fun. With the three different point-giving hands that players are trying to collect, it keeps things simple. Throughout the game, you'll have different chances to collect new tiles to help you make a match (with a hint of poker). The constant help of the dominoes on the board spaces and the help of wild numbers keeps things flowing. The other special spots like the lost artifact, grave robbers, artifact auction and natural disaster are a lot of fun. Some strategy is involved along with a fair amount of luck. We thought the age limit for the game was a little high. Eight year olds could play just fine with some help adding up their score. Contrary to what we normally find, this game plays better with less people. Adding up the score is a little cumbersome (you're really just counting your tile totals) and we would have like to see some nicely theme artifact-looking score pads to complete the game. Any piece of paper will do.

While we're on the topic of any piece of paper, the game rules were the biggest disappointment. The rules are made from printer paper that looks like it was printed from your printer in black and white. We were shocked to see such a great game have such lousy rules. They are written like a document with a ton of bullet points. They aren't the easiest to understand either and we had to reference the video which helped us know exactly how to play. By far, the only thing needing improvement in Fossil Find are the game rules. Get a graphic designer to spruce the rules up and you've found a real treasure game.
