The Games Capital Recommends this because: Zooloretto is the ultimate family game. The theme is appealing to just about everyone and despite the recommended age, children as young as 4 or 5 can still enjoy playing.
Haven't you always wanted to own your own zoo? Zooloretto gives you that chance. Each player is the owner of a Zoo and is competing to get the right animals to make their Zoo the best in the land.
Each Zoo has several enclosures which will house animals, space for the construction of vending stands and of course a barn. A number of trucks are waiting to be loaded with animals and transported to the Zoos.
On a players turn he has three options, he can place an animal on a truck, take a truck that already has animals or spend some money to fix up his Zoo.
Where it gets interesting is that each enclosure may only house one type of animals, so once your enclosures all have animals you must be very careful which truck you take. Any animals that can't find an enclosure have to stay in your barn and will lose you points at the end of the game.
The winner is the player with the best Zoo at the end of the game. Full enclosures are best and a variety of vending stands will help improve your Zoo.
Zooloretto is for 2 to 5 players ages 8 and up and plays in about 45 minutes
