Jurassic Parts (Kickstarter)
20m - 45m
2 - 5 Players
Jurassic Parts is a small box area enclosure and set collection tile game featuring dinosaur fossils! The game is designed by Kevin Lanzing (Flash Point Fire Rescue) and illustrated by Andrew Bosley (Everdell, Everdell: Pearlbrook, Tapestry, and The River).
This is it! The field assignment you’ve been preparing for your entire life!
Over a dozen dinosaur fossils lie buried in a huge slab of rock.
Time and the relentless forces of geology have mixed up the bodies, but that’s a small problem for your team. For now, sharpen your chisels and ready that hammer! It’s time to get cracking and liberate the precious fossils from their rocky tomb. For the good of science (and your own reputation) be sure to claim the biggest and best fossils for yourself!
Jurassic Parts is a game of area control for 2-5 players. All players have access to the
same slab of rock. The goal is to split it apart and claim complete dinosaur
skeletons, the bigger the better!
Who wouldn’t want a Tyrannosaurus rex in their living room…or in a museum, if the price was
45 Fossil Hex Tiles
10 Plant Hex Tiles
3 Bone Pile Hex Tiles
5 Field Guides
1 Field Leader Board
72 Chisels (12 x 6 Player Colors)
6 Unique Character Boards
20 Pieces of Amber

How to Play:
Players will take turns placing their sharpened chisels onto lines around the hex tiles, which are laid out in a single slab. Once a section of the slab is broken off from the rest of the rock hex tiles, it is divided up among the players who helped contribute to the break. Broken off tiles are assembled by the players who collected them into various dinosaur fossils, with varying point values. Once all of the tiles have been collected by players, the totals of all the completed fossils are tallied up with the highest score winning!

Backed on Kickstarter. Received. Looks fun & simple enough to play with the kiddo, but we haven’t tried it yet. Impressed by the inclusive characters!
Full Kickstarter Edition. Came with extra pack of amber tokens and no chisels. Chad was quick to replace the missing pieces and provide a little bonus. Finally got to play a 2 player game face-to-face. Took a while to setup. And here I thought Hey! That's My Fish! was a beast. Once things get going, its pretty straightforward. Some of the special cards don't seem that useful. At least on first play. I never used the Backpack or the Government Grant card in my possession. There's a fair bit of luck with the slabs since approximately half are hidden. Overall enjoyable experience. Man, can archeologists be ruthless. I had no idea! --- Sleeved https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/310849/jurassic-parts-resource-cards-promo-pack https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/310840/jurassic-parts-stegosaurus-spinosaurus-promo-tiles https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/320683/jurassic-parts-one-dino-podcast https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/320682/jurassic-parts-black-market-promo-card https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/310839/jurassic-parts-tantrumsaurus-rex-promo-card
Just received our latest Kickstarter Jurassic Parts from 25th Century Games and got it to the table immediately. Love the paleontology theme, love the area control and set collection mechanics and love the great Bosley art! I can see there are many opportunities to expand with additional fossils to collect (we'd like to see ammonites and trilobites), additional end game scoring for most diverse fossil collections and introducing asymmetric player abilities. The chisels are a bit fiddly to handle, but they did need to be flat on one side to prevent rolling. My only real criticism is most of the fossils you uncover in JP are actually Cretaceous dinosaurs, but Jurassic Park got that wrong too so I'll give a pass here.
