What is Bios: Origins (Second Edition) about?

Bios:Origins is the third part of the Bios Trilogy. In this game, the action begins thousands of years before most Civilization games. In the game, one to four players represent the human subspecies present at the time: Sapiens, Neanderthals, Denisovans, and Hobbits. Let them discover new worlds, ride war kangaroos or mammoths, dive for pearls, challenge the gods, enslave rival hominins, and perhaps even enter the Enlightenment as they enlarge their brains, acquire language, discover new worlds, domesticate strange beasts and perhaps even enter the Enlightenment. Although conquests and religious wars may occur, most fighting will be internal. The control you have over your ruling class is limited, and if your priests fail to perform, they will be killed and usurped by merchants or warlords.

To win, specialize in cultural, political, or industrial civilizations. As a result, unlike most civilization games, a cult figure on a mountaintop in New Zealand can defeat an emperor whose armies sweep the globe.

Integrates with Bios:Genesis and Bios:Megafauna, so you can start as a variety of intelligent, but not quite lingual, marine or terrestrial creatures. In addition to two maps and 26 chits, the book includes cratons and varied landforms on habitable Earth, Mars, and Venus. There are solo and cooperative variants.
