In the solo game, you play against a rival rancher (with his own AI cards and tableaux). If you pledge the Deluxe version, you also get the laboratory mini expansion.

Just when people thought they were done with the Tiny Epic series, Gamelyn Games draws them back in by uttering the magic word: dinomeeples. Studies have shown that neon coloured dinosaur meeples combined with a farming theme, and a cutesy box cover, can bend the most resistant customers into submission.
Tiny Epic Dinosaurs, then, a 1-4 player worker placement game, is launching on Kickstarter on October 14. Your goal is to create the most lucrative dinosaur farm by collecting victory points.
You have a rancheria in which you breed your dinosaurs. On your turn, you have to send your workers to buy new breeds, improve the farm, and research new breeding technologies. You have to make sure your ranch can comfortably accommodate the creatures, and most importantly, you have to make sure they are properly fed. If you can't feed them, the dinos will escape, wreak havoc to the whole farm, and eat you instead (no, the last part doesn't happen, it's a eurogame). Each pair of matching dinosaurs you have will breed, and give you new babies to sell to theme parks.
At the end of the game, you collect points for each of your dinosaurs, contracts that you made, and research developments. Rules for the solo mode have not been revealed yet.
