  • It is not uncommon for a popular board game to eventually spawn a card game version,especially if the game is an award winning design. It is far less common for a cardgame to be the inspiration for a board game. It is even rarer for this spin-offgame to capture the most coveted board game award in Germany, the prestigious Spieldes Jahre (Game of the Year). Zooloretto, by designer Michael Schacht, hasaccomplished this feat.

    Zooloretto is a derivative of Schacht’s popular card game . Playerscollect animals and assign them to various enclosures in their zoo. The challengeis to collect only the animals desired, and properly position them in enclosures inorder to attract the most spectators. This is not an easy task, as the deliverytrucks often contain an assortment of animals, some of which may not be the speciesyou desire to exhibit.

  • Zooloretto is a game that takes those principles, complicates them and turns them into a fun game. Players simultaneously are trying to make groups of animals for their zoo that appeal to them but that aren’t so good for other players that their group of choice gets snapped up before the next turn comes around.

  • In Zooloretto, each player is trying to make the best zoo possible by filling it full of animals. Players earn points for filling the enclosures to their capacity of one type of animal per enclosure; extra animals that can’t be placed will earn the player negative points at the end of the game. So players have to ensure that they don’t get too many extra animals or they may run out of places to put them.

The third truck doesn’t have a single animal on it, so there aren't animals to overflow into your barn. The coin will give us money to spend later, perhaps to expand our zoo. The cart not only earns you a small number of points but also makes it so an uncompleted enclosure earns points. If the game were to end with zoos as they are right now, the pandas would earn zero points. Normally, only full or one-away-from-full pens earn points, but if a cart is put next to them, the enclosure would earn a minimum of one point per tile. Zooloretto often ends with a difference of a few points determining the winner so every choice counts. Sure, the third truck is safe, but picking safe trucks too early might not necessarily win the game since you need animals to win.
