Mail Order Mutants

Who will be the first to create the Rattle-Hoofed Eelbatross, the Pacific Duckguana Snail, or the dreaded Chipmunktopus?

Mail Order Mutants is a set-collecting card game in which 2-4 players assume the roles of mad scientists seeking to genetically engineer bizarre creatures to sell to rich, anonymous businessmen. The scientists scoop raw DNA out of a shared toxic sewer to create the mutants indicated on a series of order request cards, and then ship them to the businessmen's private menageries.

The scientist who is best able to scoop, splice, and flush the DNA in and around his gestation tanks to churn out the most valuable collection of mutants will win the game, and a retire a still-mad, but rich, scientist.
