Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Do you know where the panda lives? Do you know where the babirusa lives? Do you know what a babirusa is? In the game Fauna, you are not expected to know all the answers, simply gather your wits and make an educated guess. You are right on target? Great. You are close? That's good too, since you score partial points. The more you play the better you get.

It makes understanding the rules simple.
T. Emond
Fauna hits a very challenging target: a really fun family game with enough solid educational value to inspire curiosity in kids (and parents, too).
John Kaufeld - parenting columnist, The Dad Game
We've played it with our nine-year-old son, and we've all learned a lot!

We recently received a copy of Fauna as a gift. We sat down to play it last evening. It was so wonderful; I had to post a review this morning.

First, let me start with the game itself:
~ The game is beautiful. The high quality is evident in the overall construction and presentation.

~ The board is durable with double sided imagery. One side is metric; the other is in US measurement.

~ The cube pieces are painted wooden cubes. They are not all "exact" in size, but you don't need to stack or balance them. They are just for placing on the board. For that purpose, they are perfect.

~ The cards are beautiful and informative. I like how they are divided between a green side (containing more common animals) and a black side (containing more exotic animals) Facts were in sync with National Geographic's website animal facts.

~ The directions~ They are long, but simple to understand. They contain color photos that illustrate the directions given with diagram labeling. It makes understanding the rules simple. We read them once, and were playing.

~ The game is set up for 2-6 players. (Although, I could easily see a teacher using teams for this game with great success.)

When you play the game, you are making educated guesses on each animal in the categories of habitat, weight, length, and tail length. You can also earn points for being adjacent to the correct answer. (close counts) This makes it fun for the younger ones.

At first, I thought this game might me a bit tough for my 1st grader. He LOVED it. When I told him there were 360 different animal cards, he just lit up. Like most children, animals fascinate him. My children went to bed asking if we could play it again tomorrow.

I love this game. I initially played a version of it with my cousin in Japan who had a German board with Japanese translations. Needless to say, I was hooked and excited to have my own set in English!

The game has simple rules and is easy for new people to pick up which makes playing a casual game with which bidders (~30 minutes) an excellent activity. It exposes people to think about the ecologically diverse areas of the planet and what would cause animals not to be able to live in other parts. It was great to see my cousin learn about new animals, geography and have her recall where forests, basins, shelves, rainforests etc are piece together knowledge. My 25-35 year old friends love the game as much as my 12 year old cousin (though there is more beer involved and arguing with my friends)

The board is well made and has a metric and imperial side depending on your preferences. Pieces are nicely made, but if you loose some can easily be replaced by coins, buttons or other everyday objects. The animal cards are also pretty durable with excellent drawings and a good amount of information on them. For kids, these would even be good flashcards to learn about animals and how land formations divide where animals live not geographical borders.

Years of watching Planet Earth and Animal Planet are finally paying off!

I bought this for my son's seventh birthday. First and foremost, he really likes it and wants to play it often. It's not as much fun for his is four year old brother which was a little surprising, but the presentation is a little sparse for him.

The grown up critique however is somewhat disappointing. The components are not up to modern standards. The board is double sided (with metric on one side, imperial on the other which is a nice touch) but thin and pretty flimsy. Many of our "cubes" are only vaguely squarish and some have split apart. The cards, which to be fair are the star of the show, are a perfect size and are well made.

While the gameplay is a good concept the way they've drawn the map and delineated the regions, combined with inacurate information on the cards themselves, creates some real problems with educational value. We have noticed several problems with the 'facts' on the cards pertaining to animals for which we are very familiar. For instance, the entire west coast of the US is demarcated on the board as one region named, "California". So what happens is you get things like the Gray Wolf card which, since they do not live in 'California", is then listed as being no where in the region, despite that fact that there ARE gray wolves in Washington state.

Besides strange board issues then are some facts on the cards which are simply wrong, sometimes very so. For instance the Rainbow trout is listed as having an "average" weight of between 6-15 pounds! (A HUGE trout is around a reasonable limit of eight pounds. A far more accurate range would be 1-6 lb or so.) While it's certainly possible for rainbows to get that big it would be like saying the average weight of human beings is between 250-400 pounds.
