I am writing this report about a game called “Dino Crunch” by Goliath Games. It’s really fun because the T-rex tries to bite you. There are big tweezers that you grab the eggs with, and the noises sound like you’re in the wild with the dinosaurs.

I’m 8 and I played with my 5-year-old sister and my mom (she said I didn’t have to tell her age) and we all had fun! Although the tweezers made it hard to pick up the eggs, it was interesting and fun because the T-rex would snap at you when you were least expecting it. This game is for 2 to 4 players, ages 4 and up.
