A game for all ages. Playing a game based on a concept of "Man, Don’t Get Angry", children learn about the geological eras and periods and the evolution of life on Earth. Throwing the dice, they move through different geological periods, get to the different Ice Ages and disastres, and as they advance or move back, the figurines change, from trilobites to the Neanderthals.
