Stack until they drop
Only the most dexterous, with nerves of steel, comes out triumphant in this exciting game. But more important than who will win, is the question, “How high can we go this round?” To help you be optimally prepared for Animal upon Animal, we have compiled several crucial (but not too seriously to be taken) facts about crocodile, monkey & co. We wish you and your family enormous pleasure reading, playing and stacking!
What Appears on the Die?
- A Dot: Take an animal from your provision and place it carefully with one hand anywhere on the pyramid.
- Two Dots: Take two animals from your provision and pile them carefully one after the other, with one hand, onto the pyramid.
- The Crocodile: Take an animal from your provision and put it next to the mouth or tail of the crocodile so that both animals touch. Thus you enlarge the piling surface used for piling animals.
- The Hand: Choose any of your animals and give it to another player who now has to pile the animal carefully on the pyramid.
- The Question Mark: The other players now determine which of your animals you have to pile. Do this with utmost care.
Aim of the Game: Who is the most skilful at stacking and will be the fi rst left without any animals?
Preparation of the Game: crocodile into center of table, seven different animals per player. If you are less than four players you distribute the remaining animals at random between you.
Important Rules of a Collapse:
If one or two animals have fallen off, the player who tried to pile them has to take them into their provision.
If more than two animals have fallen off, the player takes two of them and puts the rest back in the game box.
Has the entire pyramid collapsed? The player has to take two animals. The crocodile is put back in the center and all remaining animals are returned to the box.
All animals fall off the pyramid without anybody intervening? In this case all the animals which have fallen off are placed back in the box.
End of the Game: player places their last animal = victory
Variations for Animal Stacking Experts
If animals fall off the pyramid, the piling player has to take up to fi ve animals.
If it is the turn of a player who is left with just one animal the die isn´t thrown, but the player takes the animal and stacks it immediately onto the pyramid
How many animals can you pile on the crocodile without the pyramid collapsing?

From the moment he opened the box and picked up the chunky wooden animals he has loved this game. He pulls it out at any opportunity.
Animal Upon Animal is a simple game, and other than 2 symbols on the die (the question mark and the hand, neither of which seemed immediately obvious for us and we had to check the rule book for several plays before we learned what they meant) the rules are quickly understood by all players. Players roll the die and either balance 1 animal, 2 animals, give an animal to another player to place, allow other players to chose the animal they place, or place an animal to the front or rear of the alligator.
The pieces are chunky and well-made (although I think detailing on 2 sides instead of just 1 would be better). Children can easily handle them. They also have bumps and curves which make placement interesting for older players (matching the snake humps or the bristles of the hedgehogs, curving the beak of a toucan around the leg of another animal).
Play continues and often the pile falls. One thing I like about this game is that you only keep 2 of the fallen animals no matter how many fall. This encourages a fun game where younger players don't feel beaten down and where older ones feel free to experiment.
This can even be fun as a solo venture, seeing how many pieces you can add to the tower of animals. We also added a rule ourselves to make a more even game when adults and young children are playing. The adults simply don't allow themselves easy moves like placing an animal in front of or behind the alligator or handing off pieces for a younger player to place.
Perhaps not a game for adults or older children, but a very fun dexterity game for young children. Easy to set up on their own (unlike Break the Ice or Jenga) and encouraging fast play.
