Eat, move, divide... life is simple when you're an amoeba!Approximately 1 billion years ago, the Primordial Soup was home to a new life form - amoebas! these amoebas led boring lives of drifting, eating, and occasionally, dividing. But now you control a tribe of these organisms and by acquiring Genes, you can influence the development of your amoebas. Do you develop sophisticated movement to swim against the current? Maybe faster cell division or economical cell division? Or how about Aggression, to allow the eating of other amoebas? 20 different Genes allow for numerous combinations. The player with the most successful species reigns in the Soup! Contents:

|Each player has a set of seven amoeba in one colour. These are nicely made out of wood, indeed a little pre-assembly is required before your first game, as each amoeba has to have a pole inserted into it to be able to play. This pole is used for keeping track of how hungry each amoeba is. If it gets too hungry, it dies.. but I get ahead of myself.
The object of the game is to improve your amoebas by giving them Genes, which change the way the normal rules work in some way, such as better movement or feeding. Amoeba eat foodstuff cubes, one of each other colour. when they eat they excrete two cubes of their own colour. If it cannot eat, it starves and takes a damge bead. Two damage beads and it dies, to be replaced by two of each foodstuff colour.
After checking for environment effects, players can then buy Gene cards, which improve all your genes in some way.
Then there is a scoring round where you use a chart to gain points depending how many amoebas are in play and how many Genes you have. Game ends when environment deck runs out.
