How to play

Build your own hybrid animal and learn about DNA’s secret formula!
  • Shuffle the deck of Character cards, and place them upside down on the corresponding section on the game-board.
  • Each player takes a Character card from the top of the deck.
  • Using the catapult, each player shoots the ball at the Head section. The player whose ball lands closest to the target goes first.
  • The first player chooses a card from either the Head, Body, or Feet decks, and reads it carefully.
  • The player then prepares to shoot the ball from the catapult, to their selected body section. The number of launch attempts a player has for their turn is given on the card as the number of RNA strands.
  • If the launch is successful, the player collects the card for their selected body part.
  • The game moves to the next player, with everyone taking turns to try and collect different body parts.
  • Note: there are special cards that have interesting facts or ideas. Read them aloud!
  • The first player to build the required hybrid character wins!

This is probably one of the games my kids love the most. They really enjoy being able to try to hit the target with the balls and the arrow. Each of the cards have different characters body pieces, and you need to try to gather them all. If you hit the target in the right spot, you get to have a piece of your body. It’s certainly lots of fun!
