story
Story

Sea turtles are on the endangered species list and face many hardships throughout their lives. One of the greatest challenges every female sea turtle faces is laying her eggs. Each year a female sea turtle must drag herself onto the beach and dig a large hole in order to lay her eggs. The fantastic part is that she does not do this just once, but up to ten times a year. In this game, you are a female sea turtle. Your goal is to journey through the world of a sea turtle and lay eggs three times. While on your journey, you will face many of the dangers sea turtles are confronted with everyday. You will also learn much about the life of a sea turtle and how to preserve the species. Good luck and happy egg laying.

Game Directions

The goal of the game is to move around the board and onto each egg spot once. After correctly completing the research task at each egg spot, the player gets an egg. The first player to obtain three eggs wins.

To play the game, each player starts somewhere on the outer loop of the game board. At the beginning of each turn, the player must select and answer a question. If the player correctly answers the question, s/he may roll the die and move. That turn is then over. If the player answers the question incorrectly, the turn is over, and s/he cannot move. The goal of the game is to get onto the beach to lay eggs at each egg spot on the game board. When a player reaches an egg spot, s/he must pick and complete a research task to receive an egg. Once the research task is completed, the player may roll again and continue moving around the board. If a player lands on a danger space, s/he must select a danger and follow the danger instructions.

To win the game, a player has to visit each egg spot once and correctly complete the research task at each spot. For each task completed, the player gets an egg. The first play to obtain three eggs wins.
