Product Description

Product Description

Each player uses small, large , wild and exotic animals and their young to try and attract as many visitors as possible to their zoo. 2-5 players, ages 8 and up, 45 minutes to play. Made in Germany.

From the Manufacturer

In Zooloretto from Rio Grande Games, players use small, large, wild and exotic animals and their young to try and attract as many visitors as possible to their zoo. But players be forewarned- the zoo must be carefully planned. Before you know it, you have too many animals and no more room for them. That results in minus points. Luckily, the zoo can expand. Zooloretto is a zoo of a family game in which less is sometimes more.

Customer Reviews

Nice quick game - fairly easy to learn.

If you've ever played Settlers of Catan or Ticket to Ride, I would say that they are very similar in terms of ease and depth of gameplay.

It is great for a family game night, a lot of fun competition.

Zooloretto is a game of zoo management for 2 to 5 players. Each player manages their own zoo, which includes several animal enclosures and spots for food vendors. During each round, players fill up delivery trucks, choose a truck to fill their zoo, and allocate the animals to the various enclosures.

The game components are made of wood and sturdy cardboard and can withstand many games with young players. The game plays slightly different with 2 players, although it's still enjoyable. All of the scoring takes place at the very end, and a lot happens in the last couple of rounds, so it's anyone's game up until the end.

Zooloretto is a little light on strategy compared to other European board games, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Given the theme and the balance of luck and strategy, the game is very appealing to casual gamers and families. The game length is just right for this audience as well - about 45 minutes.

My husband and I are avid gamers, especially the European cross-over games. I had really wanted Zooloretto, but our research said that it wasn't the best for 2 players. Since we rarely have anyone else, we look primarily for games that are good for two.

We LOVE the game. We have only ever played it with two, and it's still great. There's a decent bit of strategy involved while also being sort of laid back and is greatly entertaining. Great game!

We played this game with children and adults - complicated enough to make it interesting and requiring some strategizing, yet easy enough for elem. children to understand. Different each time it's played, especially when played with a different number of players. We played it with five, four, three , and two - fun each way.

I bought this for a friend after playing it with our daughter and son-in-law several times. It's spans a great age group, with the younger ones enjoying it on one level (building a zoo with their choice of animals) and older children and adults getting more into the strategy of the game (give those other players animals they don't have room for, etc.).

I bought this for my family since we love strategy games and especially European games. It took a couple games to get into it because the game play is so different from most games, but after those initial tries, we were hooked and have been playing at least 3x every week for several months. It has a lot of replay value because each game is different and you can never tell who will end up winning. The object of the game is to fill up your zoo and keep your barn empty because animals in your barn (the place they go when there's no space in your zoo) count as points against you. The game play is quite straightforward. The strategy is fun because you are always trying to trip someone up by giving them animals they don't want while keeping the animals you want for yourself. You can also buy animals from other people to fill up your enclosures. I would also highly recommend buying the expansion that includes the petting zoo and restaurant and polar bear tiles. After playing the original game for a few months, we added the expansion, and have never gone back to using just the original game - the expansion add some great new options like a petting zoo to hold two of your baby animals. If you like strategy games and don't want to spend 2 hours on one, this is a pretty quick game - one game can be done in as little as 30 minutes and rarely takes more than 45 minutes. Playing with 3 people is probably the most fun. The 2 person variant is not so much fun. You can play with up to 5 people.

I first heard about this game when it was recommended for fans of Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, and Bohnanza. It doesn't require as much strategy as Catan or Carcassonne and is time-consuming to set-up, but it's fun. Had to read the instructions twice to get the scoring right and can be picked up by kids quickly. This is a great board game for friends and family.

I bought this game because i thought it might be something good for my 7-12 year old grandchildren. The 12 year old read the directions and figured out how to play and then we taught the 7-10 year olds. They had a great time running their zoos and are learning a lot of decision making ideas - they must make decisions and live with the results - and you really don't know who wins until the end. It is a great lead in to "the bean game".

Was looking for something my 8-year old could enjoy. Success! Easy to learn, and I recommend paying close attention to the play hints in the back of the rules book. Is just the right amount of strategy and ease of play to keep everyone's interest. Highly recommended.
