1898, Siberia, the seismologist Edgar Vuntaf discovers a continent free of any human presence, sheltering a teeming life, in forms never encountered before! Unknown plants, colossal creatures... Faced with this shocking discovery, the world's scientific elite, gathered in Paris for the Universal exposition, create the Vivarium Syndicate, and decide to send explorers into this new continent.

Vivarium is an efficient and tense card collection game with a great artistic direction! Each turn players use dominoes to create coordinates that allow them to build their card collection. After 7 rounds, the player that has successfully completed their objectives and collected the greatest creatures wins the game.

    "[Vivarium] uses simple and familiar mechanisms but wraps them up in a tight package. The addition of the fairly novel domino system for choosing coordinates pushes this one over the top."
