At last year’s GenCon, while the eyes of the gaming world were on Indy, a great new game was being quietly placed in every Target store in the USA. We did not MEAN for it to be quietly placed, but it was, so quietly it seems very few gamers even noticed. We hoped that gamers far and wide would announce that “Evolution: The Beginning is a great game, with tons of theme that I can play with anyone “. Instead we didn’t hear much of anything at all.
At BGG.con I learned a lot of gamers DID like it once they gave it a try, but either had not heard of it until they came to the North Star Games booth, or only knew it was at Target, and had not ventured to give it a try.
Evolution:The Beginning is a streamlined introduction to the Evolution family. The Beginning is a “Swiss army knife” of a game, providing strategic gameplay that goes toe to toe with other games in the series at low numbers, while providing a thematic yet more casual experience at higher numbers. Is also has sweet food bags, and alternate art “Warning Call” cards for other games in the Evolution family.
If you want to check out, what we feel is “the best secret in gaming”, head to your local Target Store, or target.com.
EVOLUTION: THE BEGINNING IS IN THE OMEGATHON! Evolution: The Beginning will be featured in the Omegathon at PAX South. Omegathon is a 3 day multi-category (tabletop, console and PC) tournament where 20 selected “Omeganauts” vie for a chance to win a trip to any other PAX in the world (including PAX Australia). We are very excited to be a part of this unique tournament and we wish all the Omeganauts the best of luck!
