What is it
SOS Dino is a cooperative children’s game for 1 to 4 players.
Help Marie, Freddy, Nessie and Louis reach safety! Avoid the lava flows and meteorites, collect the eggs and seek shelter in the mountains! A cooperative adventure for the whole family.
How to play:
At your turn, take a random tile in the bag, place it on the board and carry out the action printed on the tile. Throughout the game, move each dino to safety on top of the mountains, while gathering the eggs scattered throughout the land.
SOS Dino is a cooperative game in which you must move the Lava, then move the Dinos on the board. You are trying to get the Dinos to safety on top of the Mountain, but you’ll need to save the Eggs spread across the board on the way.

What our experts think
SOS Dino is a fantastic cooperative board game, great for developing communication skills and building an understanding of teamwork. Our testers enjoyed working together, using their decision-making and logical reasoning skills to anticipate what would happen and work out what they needed to do to save the dinosaurs.
The instructions were very child-friendly and set the scene for the game, also explaining about the volcanic eruption which generated some good educational discussion. The board was very colourful and our testers were very engaged, loving the idea of beating their score from their previous try. We liked that there were different levels of play, so you could add in different challenges as the children progressed.
