Description Edit | History

Zooloretto: The Dice Game takes the basic Zooloretto / Coloretto game play – on a turn either add to the offerings on display, or take one set of offerings – and replaces the cards with dice so that you'll never know which animals will pop up for you to take. Each player has her own scoresheet, which represents her zoo, with space for five types of animals: one crocodile, two ostriches, up to five lions. The scoresheet also has space to collect coins and barns for animals that don't fit in the appropriate pens.

On a turn, the active player takes one of two actions:

  • Take two dice from the reserve, roll them, then assign each die to a transport cart on the game board.
  • Take all the dice in one transport cart, then tick off the animals/coins on those dice on your scoresheet.

Dice can be placed in separate carts, and the number of dice is limited to six, eight, or ten depending on the number of players. The round continues until each player has taken dice from a cart, then a new round begins. The first player to fill the pen of a particular type of animal receives a bonus; if a player takes more animals than she has room for, however, she ticks off the barn for each type of overflow animal.

The game ends once a player has filled all her animal pens or has space in only one pen. Players score one point for each animal and any bonus points they received; they lose two points for each barn ticked off, but for each group of coins collected, one penalty can be ignored. (Alternatively, coin groups are worth one point.) The player with the highest score wins!

8 Alternative Score Sheet
I've thought about a variant of the original score sheet. I want to mix some Zooloretto in it to make the descisions a bit more interesting and varied. The differences: -Crocodiles and Ostrichs both give 2 points as first-finish bonus, to make it more attractive cause to be the the first isn't always the best -if you fill up Apes, you directly get a coin, all players not only the first -Elephants and Lions give different point bonuses (Elephant +1 for full and one less, Lions +2 for full and +1 for one less), if you have fewer then only count the animals like Zooloretto with shop, all players can get the bonuses, not only the first -one coin-sector gives 2 point instead of 1 -but one animal in the stable takes 3(!) points to balance it I'm interested in what you think. Maybe...

6 1-2-3 -Trucks for 2 players
Inspired by the 2 players-version of Coloretto and Zooloretto, I've worked on the original board for the 1-2-3-Trucks. I know the Dice game is played a bit different (the same truck can be used several times in one round) but I still like the limited version with 1-2-3 better.
