- Phylo (or if you rather use our preferred term of endearment, Phylomon), is many things. It is:
1. A card game that makes use of the wonderful, complex and inspiring things that inform the notion of biodiversity.
2. An exercise in crowd sourcing, open access, and open source game development.
3. Freakin' awesome!
