Pocket Galapagos | Small Box Games | Official

Pocket Galapagos by Small Box Games. Official TTS Mod.

While the oceans teem with endemic life, the terrestrial creatures of the Galapagos are threatened by invasive species.

In Pocket Galapagos, you will manage the indigenous animals of a lone island in the chain known for its ecological diversity, while minimizing the effects of threats caused by new species. Bolster the populations of land and sea using multi-use cards, potential combos, and a bit of press your luck in this solo player card game.

The front of each card features one of three endemic populations (Rice Rat, Carpenter Ant, or Giant Ground Finch) as well as one of nine Aquatic Species. The back of each card features a Rat, Bird, or Ant, as well as an Invasive Effect.

Each turn, the player reveals five cards from the deck. Two cards are played to The Ocean to increase populations and gain abilities (with clever card play allowing for multiple actions and effects based on the cards chosen and their order of play). While two cards are then flipped and played to either the Island Biome or Dominant Species (which have limited capacity) or to the Invasive Species. Any remaining cards are discarded for Invasive Effects.


I sincerely hope that you enjoy Pocket Galapagos! If you’re enjoying this digital version of the game, I hope you’ll consider heading over to and help support the digital versions of the games I design, or to to purchase the print and play files or a physical copy of the game.

Small Box Games is a small, independent, one person operation, and your support helps me to continue making the card games I design and publish.

If you’re familiar with the physical version of Pocket Galapagos, you’ll notice that there are elements in this digital version (playmat, markers and tracks, mainly) that are not in the physical version. Hopefully you’ll find that these elements make playing the game much easier in TableTop Simulator.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you for checking out the games I design!

Thank you. However, the text on the rules is tiny and I have bad eyesight even when enlarging it. Is there any way to possibly make it larger (and for your other games as well?)

Added new, updated Advanced Rules, plus a small hint in the rules that I hope you'll find helpful.

Thanks for playing Pocket Galapagos!
