Over the past year and a half, we have been testing the game as an educational activity for colleges and universities. Our paper about the study is now available online (open access) in the Journal of Geoscience Education (Curriculum and Instruction)! The paper describes the learning objectives of the game as well as modifications for your specific classroom needs.

Everything you need to play the game and use it as a lab activity can be found here: https://doi.org/10.18738/T8/NQV2CU.
We also have a SERC "Teach the Earth" page about the game: https://serc.carleton.edu/teachearth/activities/231524.html. There is also a "High school version" in the works!
If you want to learn more about the site this game is based on, I gave a public talk about the site at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology. More detail about this and other games can be found here: http://www.jsg.utexas.edu/martindale/paleontological-board-games/
