Clades Solo challenges you to match animal cards according to their evolutionary relationships. A “clade” is a complete branch of the evolutionary tree, such as mammals, arthropods, and sauropsids (reptiles and birds together). Can you make a triple match with one card of each clade? What about animals of the water, land, and air? How fast can you spot the two cards that go with the first card to make a “triple”?
* Science notes about the three larger clades and the nine smaller clades, including bats, primates, whales, birds, lizards, winged insects, spiders, and crabs.
* Modern animals, prehistoric animals (dinosaurs, mammoths, pterosaurs), or both
* Play at your own pace. No failure for playing slowly.
* Hint button to help you get started and to help when you’re stuck.
* From the Grandmother Fish team: children’s book illustrator Karen Lewis and award-winning game designer Jonathan Tweet.
* Uses the same matching rules as the card games Clades and Clades Prehistoric by Atlas Games.

Evolution is Fun!
This is a fun way to learn about science with a simple matching game anyone can learn.
A few suggestions for improvements:
* include information about the different Clades, let me click on the cards after I make a match to learn more.
* use a slider for volume rather than just on/off.
* add challenges or badges, something to give the game more variety.
* start each game off with a fact about one of the Clades or description of a group.
* maybe add a library where I unlock more and more of the Clades as I play and can go back and read about the ones I’ve already earned.
