  2. The Story of “Survival of the Fittest” Benny, the World’s strongest bear is the most popular animal in his habitat. He is mean and tough and … well let’s just say this- you don’t want to mess with him! Benny is convinced that he is the greatest animal in all of the animal kingdom, so to try and prove himself right, he has placed a challenge to any animal that dares to accept it. But Benny is not going to compete with just anyone. Oh no! Benny wants only the BEST. Before you can even think about challenging Benny, you have to go through a challenge of your own. There can be up to six competitors total. And the task for these animals is simple- survival. Who is going to make it through the race called life? What will you do when pollution hits or famine strikes? Through life’s devastating circumstances are you able to press through and continue to run that extra meter? 400m of intense cramping, oxygen depriving, all-out pain in the legs running is the challenge set before you. Win the race, and you win the chance to challenge the ultimate of ultimates- Benny Bear. Home Page

  3. Game Directions * The goal of the game is to be the first person to make it all the way around the track and cross the finish line. * To start the game, each player puts a gamepiece on one of the six numbers in the lane of his choice (only one gamepiece per lane.) * The youngest player in the group will click on question 1 on the 'Let's play "Survival of the Fittest"' screen. If he answers the question correctly, he rolls the die and moves that many spaces in his lane. If he answers incorrectly, then he remains on his number, and it becomes the next person's turn. Play continues in a clockwise direction. * If you land on an Adaptation Station square, select an Adaptation Station card from the pile and follow the directions on it. * If a player rolls a number, which causes him to be on the same space as another player, that habitat becomes overpopulated. Have each person call out a number 1-6. Taking turns rolling, whoever rolls their number first stays in that space. The other player must move back 2 spaces. You start the rolling. * To win the game you have to be the first person to make it all the way around the track and reach the finish line (you do not have to land exactly on the Finish line space; you may cross over it) Return
