Does Evolution have Hot Seat Play or Pass-and-Play?

Yes, it does!


Where can I learn more about the Evolution Board Game?

Please visit the North Star Games website, or inquire at your local hobby shop, game store, or bookstore.


I’m in Beta and all of my progress is gone. Where did it go?

When in Beta, players sign into a separate test server. This server is independent from our live server and things like progress, achievements, and unlocked avatars do not follow over. This is to ensure our engineers have a clean slate for diagnosing and resolving any issues. You may return to the live game by opting out of Beta, uninstalling, and reinstalling Evolution.


Why can I not use the Stained Glass Cards in Climate?

The Stained Glass Cards are only available for play in the base game of Evolution.


I found a bug in the game. What’s the best way to notify you?

Please send us a ticket through our in-game Feedback feature. These tickets pack a lot of useful information our engineers can use to diagnose and resolve issues.

Why is there a limit of 5 species?

To optimize evolution for all platforms, especially mobile phones, we opted to cap the number of species that can be out on the board.  Through testing and crunching numbers, we found the sweet spot at 5, as only a very small percentage of the time can a player sustain 6 or greater species for more than one turn.

Can I play Evolution across multiple devices?

Yes! If you have purchased the game on more than one platform, you can log into the game from multiple devices with the same login info to access your rankings and progress.
