Game Information

Short Introduction: 
Splice is a card game where players splice together DNA to resurrect extinct animals. An archeological discovery has unearthed the remains of the most exotic animals of Earth's past. As competing scientists, you're racing to sift through the biological remains and separate the animals' genetic code from "junk" DNA. Assembling the tiny nucleotide segments into base pairs, players need to order the pairs into sequences that match the gene formula for each extinct animal.
