The Bone Wars, also known as the Great Dinosaur Rush, was a period of intense and ruthless competitive fossil hunting between two American paleontologists: Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh.
During this time, which started in 1897, both men used every method available to outdo each other in the field. Teams were bribed, bones were stolen and dig sites are even damaged and destroyed. They also sought to damage their rival's reputation by attacking them in scientific publications.
In Bone Wars, the newest title by Game Brewer, players take on the role of a palaeontologist in the late 1800s. During this time, a bitter rivalry was waged between Othniel Marsh and Edward Cope, two world-renowned palaeontologists. They both tried to outdo the other in discovering new species of dinosaurs, going so far as to bribe workers, steal or even destroy bones. The players are palaeontologists working for one of these legendary men or are perhaps working on their own behalf – trying to outdo all competition.
During the game, players have to make clever use of their action cards, which they play in the slots under their player board. These action cards can either activate their team - digging up fossils and discovering new species in the field - or their paleontologist - who spend their time publishing species, debunking other players' papers and getting awards.
