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.

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!

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.

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 played this game with some adults before I bought it because it seemed simple enough for my kids, and it was! Simple enough for my 5, 7 and 8 year old, why, even my 3.5 year old made it through half of a game before succumbing to her attention span. Complete success.

Game play
Everyone starts with a Their own player board featuring an empty zoo with a barn and three enclosures. They can expand their zoo by adding another enclosure. The boards are sturdy and tastefully illustrated. Each player starts with two coins.

The game is played over sever rounds and each player will take several turns during a round. On your turn you can either pick a face down animal tile or spend your money expanding your zoo (only once) or using money to move animals around your zoo or buying them from your opponents barn. The animals that are picked go on one of the delivery trucks (one for each player) Each truck can carry three tiles. Some tiles have money on them instead of animals to inject some much needed cash into your zoos coffers. Instead of picking a tile or spending money, you can also choose to take a delivery truck back to your zoo, but you pass for the rest of the round. When your delivery truck arrives you place the animals either in your barn or in an enclosure. Only one kind of animal can go in an enclosure.

Each kind of animal at the end of the game count as points against you so even children pick up quickly which truck is right for their zoo.

After everyone unloads their delivery truck they return them to the center of the table and you start filling them again.

Some of the animals have she and and he symbols on them. If those two are put in an enclosure together predictable but surprisingly quick results ensue.

This game really took me by surprise, and my kids want to play EVERY day!. What initially seems like a basic strategy/bidding game, quickly evolves to have many layers. Each player is in charge of a zoo and has to attract visitors. This is accomplished by completing areas with the same type of animals and establishing vending carts. Trucks are filled each round, by the players, and on their turn, a player may take a truck to their zoo, thus claiming what was on it. The tenseness surrounding the placing of animals on trucks and waiting to see if the truck you want is still available are great fun.

There are many layers to the strategy portion, that some younger players may connect on, but older players will see the benefits/disadvantages of certain moves, and will start planning to sabotage others' zoos. The box says ages 13 and up, but my daughters are 13 and 9 and want to play at least 3 games (not sure on how they arrived at that number) every day they have off. My younger one picked up quite a bit of the nuanced strategy after only a few games (which she was quite proud of)

You cannot go wrong with this game. The rules are simple, yet hold many layers of strategy. A perfect beginning to families that are bored with the traditional board games and want to try something new. A definite 5 stars!
