Biologist Day is a traditional celebration of the Moscow State University biological faculty. Lomonosov Moscow State University is the main and one of the oldest universities in Russia. According to QS World University Rankings 2018, this educational institution is considered the most popular and prestigious university in Russia and CIS countries.
The author of the game "Evolution", Dmitry Knorre, is an alumni of this University, and is currently working there as a teacher and a research fellow.
Every year, the event is attended by about three thousand people, including not only graduates, students, but also people interested in biology, the ones who are not indifferent to the problems of our world and the environment.
Biologist Day 2018 was dedicated to one of the most interesting topics - the forest and the ecology of land, and visitors learn everything related to that topic in fun and informative way.
During the first day of the event, visitors could listen to fascinating lectures, take part in quizzes, visit a photo exhibition and take a tour around the faculty building of Moscow State University.
On the second day of the event, there was a concert and open-air, where you could visit lots of master classes, become a participant in a thematic quest, or buy unique items at a fair.
For us the annual participation in the Biologist's Day has already become a tradition. Our leaders at board game demo were busy all day. They were ready to explain the rules of our games, sit at the table with the players, help choose a board game. Not only "Evolution", but also our other board games were in great demand.
In addition, the Biologist Day this year was a significant event for the Right Games, because we first introduced our novelty – a board game "Terraformer" - to biologists and received positive feedback. Previously, the game was presented by us on SPIEL 2017.
"Terraformer" is a card game with the draft mechanics, with the theme of terraforming of other planets in order to populate them with suitable living organisms.
We want to thank the organizers of the event and all the visitors who made these two days rich, interesting and simply unforgettable!
The festival "Biologist Day 2018: Through the forest" turned out to be a bright event, which united a huge number of people.
