John Hammond couldn’t do it. Neither could Claire Dearing. But that doesn’t mean you can’t. And with Funko Games‘ new legacy tabletop adventure, Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar, you’ll have a chance to try and successfully operate your own prehistoric amusement park. Will you be able to avoid dinosaur catastrophe as you work your way through storylines in all five movies, resulting in 24 hours of unique gameplay? Or will you suffer the same fate of everyone who tried to control mother nature? Your actions will decide your destiny. So before you start splicing dino DNA watch the newest episode of How to Play with Becca Scott.

Funko Games’ development studio Prospero Hall wants to welcome you back to Jurassic Park, with a legacy game that celebrates all five films in the franchise so far. Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar covers 12 thrilling adventures. They start with the 1993 film that started it all and goes right through Fallen Kingdom. Each adventure takes two hours to complete, guaranteeing you a full day of original gameplay. And everything you do along the way transforming Isla Nublar into a world of wonder will impact what follows. Every decision made during play uniquely and permanently affects the entire course of the the game. You can get two copies and have two totally different experiences.

In this episode of How to Play Becca also shows how you’ll get to use iconic characters from the franchise. That includes people like Dr. Alan Grant, Dr. Ellie Sattler, Owen Grady, and more. And all along the way you’ll be building your own park while unlocking new dinosaurs from mystery boxes. They’ll join the four miniature dinos you start the game with. You’ll kick things off with a Tyrannosaurus rex, Velociraptor, Brachiosaurus, and Triceratops. Then, when you’re done you’ll have your own unique endgame designed to be replayed as often as you want.

First announced last year at Gen Con, the game’s Kickstarter launches this month on March 22 for $120. And you won’t just metaphorically be getting a whole lot of game. This is a whopper, weighing in at seven pounds. It also features a unique 1950s art style inspired by the comic books and other media that shaped the Jurassic Park/World franchise. In fact, the only thing it can’t do is guarantee you won’t meet the same fate as everyone else who tried to turn dinosaurs into an attraction. But that’s okay. It’ll be more fun when things go haywire. It always is.
