Ursuppe (aka Primordial Soup)
Another big game by us. Big both in respect of playing time (about 2 hours) and material: a lot of bits'n pieces in the box.
While our edition was partially bilingual (we only shipped English rules to games we know to leave Germany) there is now a fully localized version "Primordial Soup"
by Z-Man Games.

By aquiring new abilities you can try to eat less or different stuff, move more regular, faster or even to attack other amoeba, or to defend attacks, or, or, or...
Ursuppe freshly spiced, the expansion
There is an expansion set to Ursuppe which is kind of two expansions in one. It contains both,
- material to play Ursuppe with 5 or 6 players
- and a big scoup of new genes to use with any number of players.
