Description from the packaging.

The Dinosaurs are back!
DinoWars is an interactive strategy-arcade game with fully animated arcade sequences and a complete encyclopedia. Eight of the best known dinosaurs- each with it's own skill level, attack strategy, strengths and weaknesses - join forces in two opposing armies to fight over a kidnapped dinosaur egg on a prehistoric battlefield. This board game has all the elements of an exciting strategic battle and more!

The arcade sequences feature massive animated dinosaurs that stand as tall as 2/3rds of the screen. The arcade sequence can also be played by itself as a separate game.

The encyclopedia is huge and fully animated, packed with interesting, educational, but also entertaining information about the prehistoric era.

The game can be played wither with two players or one player against the computer.
