In Dinosaur 1944 your team of soldiers lands on Kyoryu Jima to discover that the island is infested with dinosaurs as a result of evil scientific experiments. The game comes with a map book that gives you different map tile configurations to play on. On each round, you first spawn dinos on the map. Then, if you had placed ambush traps in the previous rounds, they go off. Any surviving dinosaurs attack you. Your heroes fight back, move, and set ambushes. To attack the dinosaurs, you roll dice and hope to match the enemies' defense. When dinosaurs are killed, you gain skulls - used as currency in the game.


Each hero has unique abilities, and as the game progresses, dinosaurs multiply and get tougher. To win, you have to take out the dinosaur boss.
