RE: Paleontology card game
My non-palaeontologically-inclined fiance bought it at SVP to keep him
amused. He went through all the cards and didn't stop laughing for about an
hour. Some of the trump cards you can play include having better quality
alcohol for your workers, or fiddling the publication dates on your papers.
Quality. I'm sure there's scope for combining it with Dino-Opoly (yes, I
have that as well in my games cupboard) to make a very entertaining and
reasonably palaeontologically accurate game.
