Get Your Zoo On
July 07, 2004

I purchased this game because the box looked neat. And I'd have to say, it's the best one in my collection right now.

The rules are easy to learn. The replay value is high. The game is light-weight so you won't spend forever playing it. The dynamics change dramatically when you have 2, 3 or 4 players. It's mostly skill but there is certainly some luck involved.

If you dig Carcassone and bidding games, you'll be happy with O Zoo le Mio.

My wife, in-laws, friends and enemies all enjoy the game. I mean, what could be better than building a zoo called 'Porky Park' with nothing but aquatic and bird exhibits!

My only problem with the game is you fold some of the cardboard pieces to build your zoo and some of my pieces are already wearing out. I guess I'll have to buy another copy someday!

I love this game. Just got it myself and really like the mechanics of it. WHich really reminds me of Kardinal and Konig (web of power). The animal theme is nice I think and I like the auction part as well. It gives it a little tension and depth on how much you are willin to spend to help yourself or screw your neighbor.

Tricky Game, Beautiful Pieces
April 15, 2004

After burning out a bit on war and money games, I'd been on a search for a less-dry strategy game and this was a great find. The pieces are beautiful and the rules are fairly simple - your goal is to build the most beautiful zoo. Great with 2-players, as you have a bigger zoo to maintain and develop. The blind auction is a great twist and after a couple of plays, you realize how much long-range strategy you have to apply to win. Overall, a fun game with easy mechanics and beautiful design. I've introduced it to both gamers and non-gamers and the response has always been good.
