Product Description

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.

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.

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.).

This isn't a hugely complex game. Each player is given a board showing the base zoon and a few coins they can spend for some special actions. The turn starts with a number of empty "trucks" sitting on the table, equal to the number of players. Each player can then.

1) spend coins to expand their zoo or move animals within their zoo
2) draw a tile from the bag. This tile then must be placed on one of the trucks. each "truck" can contain up to three tiles
3) take a truck and put the tiles that were on the truck into their zoo, [after doing this the player is out until all players have claimed trucks]

Strategy comes in because you cannot min animals in an enclosure and the basic zoo only has 3 enclusures, although putting a male and female animal of the same species in an enclosure with extra space will result in a baby animal being bred.

the game continues until there are less than 15 tiles left, at which time points are scored based on how full the zoo's enclosures are. Penalty points are taken away for having animals in the warehouse.

And that's the basic game. Not complex, but easy to describe and teach.

With good players the game goes fast, as the only real strategy is guessing when someone else might claim a "truck" you are trying to build up with the right animals for your zoo. You learn to pay attention to who is collecting which animals.

Sadly, I can't call this a classic game. It's plays a bit too much like a solitare game as the direct interactions are limited. It's not a bad party game as the simple rules will allow teenagers to play, but it can be slow, so I cannot recommend it for the 6-9 year old crowd.

This is definitely more of a gateway game. Good to get people interested in strategy and euro-games, but not necessarily the best game for long term playing. Unless you have a very patient group of friends this game will eventually seem a bit less exciting.

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.

Nice quick game - fairly easy to learn. Might want to buy the expansion when you buy it - after I bought it I got the advertisement - "often purchased with zooloretto" - I think it adds more players.

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.
