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.
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!
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.Read more ›
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!

The game is well made but the strategy is very minimal. I would recommend this for kids but not adults looking for new board games.Published 17 months ago by D.Bailey
