Evolution never stands still. In the core game you created poisonous carnivores, hid them in burrows, made complex cooperation chains between creatures. Your animals gained fat, fell into hibernation and could cast away their tail. The Time to Fly expansion opens new horizons before you.

Now you can teach your creatures to hide in durable shells, spit ink at opponents and even fly. Now you'll have to think twice before attacking a helpless animal! For all you know it could be a dangerous predator trying to catch you unaware.

If the core set allowed you to create animals with around 50 thousand combinations of abilities, now the possible amount exceeds 50 million, that's more creatures than that ever lived on Earth.

Up to six people can now play Evolution with this add-on.

Evolution. The Origin of Species

Evolution is the game based on the theory of Charles Darwin but in this game you take on the role of Creator: create your own animal, make it evolve, hunt, survive… Our game, and this isn't a joke, can be used as a biology lesson for schools, though adults enjoy it as well. This game will appeal to both people who enjoy casual board games (30 min to learn the rules is more than enough) and to hardcore players who plan complex strategies to win.
