New York Zoo, one to buy

This was a gift and I have heard the game is brilliant, very well received. The pieces in the game are top quality. The delivery service I give top marks and the packaging was good.

Wonderful on many levels

My partner and I had seen this reviewed on a Youtube video and instantly wanted to play.

The game set is beautifully put together with a great selection of animal figures, boards and other pieces to play with. The rules are simple and easy to learn. The tactics are tricky to master with lots of pieces to consider and a mechanic that keeps you thinking two or three turns ahead. For people who like to play in that way its great, but it can be played without too much in depth analysis and just enjoying it in a simpler way.

My only complaints with this game are:

- Set up takes some time as the game pieces have to be laid out in a particular way to maintain the balance between players.

- If you are only 2 players then the game follows a predictable start for 1 or 2 turns as you will always start with the same zoos and the same starting animals, there is no element of randomness (again, this is to maintain the delicate balance between players). It also becomes quite clear by a certain point that someone is in the lead and there is little chance of catching up to them.

Highly recommended, but consider that it may be more enjoyable with 4 or 5 players.

OVERVIEW

Puzzling and animal breeding: Designer Uwe Rosenberg is at his best! In New York Zoo, you are constructing an animal park. Build animal enclosures, introduce new animals and raise their offspring. The game play is straight forward as you have only two turn options: Puzzle a new enclosure tile into your zoo area or gain new animals to populate your animal encounters. But be sure to time your actions well since you want your zoo to participate in as many animal breedings as possible.

 

1-5 PLAYERS | 30-45 MINS | AGES 10+
