Your goal in Draftosaurus is to have the dino park most likely to attract visitors. To do so, you have to draft dino meeples and place them in pens that have some placement restrictions. Each turn, one of the players roll a die and this adds a constraint to which pens any other player can add their dinosaur.
Draftosaurus is a quick and light drafting game in which you don’t have a hand of cards that you pass around (after selecting one), but a bunch of dino meeples in the palm of your hand.

Tony Sweet –
Draftosaurus is a great drafting game that plays quickly whether you are new or familiar to the drafting mechanic. Take a handful of meeples, take 1 and put it on your board, pass the rest to the player on your right. Do this until you have placed your last meeple. The board gives you a variety of ways to score for placing meeples in certain areas. The roll of a die restricts players to placing their meeple on only half of the board. Great intro/filler game with decisions on every turn.
