A brilliant version of the Zooloretto game mechanic. I love dice, and I love the tension and decision making. Highly recommended.

Actually I like it even more than Coloretto or Zooloretto. Although it has the same general feel as its predecessors you have to play in a different way and the fact that it plays fast but tactical makes this the perfect filler for me.

After about 20 games played on Yucata, I'm amazed how much I like this game and how well it holds up for being "just a dice game". I don't like dice games, and I don't like simple silly games. Doesn't matter, Zooloretto Wurfelspiel is a good game. Surprisingly deep strategy - I still can't figure out if taking a Crocodile on turn 1 is a good move or a bad one.

Will be watching for an English physical version.

This is a really good, quick dice game. It only does two things, set collection management and push your luck die rolling, but it does those two things very well.

My favorite dice game. Covers the essential part of Zooloretto. One important part of the strategy is that you need to think how to best distribute the dice so that you get what you want and nobody takes it away. (adi)

I just love this type of game: easy to learn (and teach others), addicting and with many interesting decisions packed in a typical 15-minutes game.
The theme is cute and well integrated and there is a very good chance that even your non-gaming mom/girlfriend/etc. is going to fall in love with this game.
Don't be fooled into thinking the game is all luck - I seem to be winning most of our family games so there is definitely fair amount of skill in the game and even the seemingly simple decisions can be crucial for your final score.
Equally great with 2, 3 or 4 players. I personally prefer it with 2 because there is the least amount of luck. Also I suggest playing two games in a row, because whoever rolls first in the 2-player game seems to be at a very slight disadvantage.

P.S. My family still enjoys it very much, even after being trashed so many times. The game just has that addicting, "let's play one more" factor.

P.P.S. You get nice looking scoresheets with the game. Before you run out of them I suggest you laminate 4 of them so you can write down your scores with the erasable marker and then simply wipe it off with the kitchen rolls. It should last you forever.

This is a solid version of Zooloretto with a great 15 minute pure-filler play-time. It captures the essence of Zooloretto in a way that is a bit more thematic than Coloretto, still plays in the time-span of the latter, and requires no shuffling. It doesn't exactly replace Coloretto since the dice-rolling is more random than odds-figuring with card counting. And it doesn't replace Zooloretto since it lacks the additional elements of the collecting the male and female animals to get the babies, and it doesn't have anything to spend the coins on except removing the animals from the stable. But it really hits a sweet spot if you have 15 minutes and want to squeeze in another game.

It would be nice if you didn't open up a truck by taking the contents since that makes it easier for those who go after to rid themselves of bad dice rolls. It was a nice bit of pain in Coloretto/Zooloretto that the row would disappear and you were sometimes forced to take a bad set if you stayed "in."

This is going to fit into our filler game rotation of Sushizock and Scripts and Scribes, and is well worth the low price if you can find it.

I admit it: I love dice games: Kingsburg, Alien Frontiers, Stone Age, Roll through the Ages, Bohnanza Würfelspiel, So many good ones! But still, there is room for more: Zooloretto - the dice game is a wonderful, light dice game which nicely captures the spirit of Zooloretto/Coloretto. A fine, quick game which proves once more, that Michael Schacht is a really great designer.

Played in www.yucata.de

Fun little game, feels a bit like Coloretto (the only I have played in the series). Probably better with more than 2 players because there is more competition for being the first to complete the different sets of animals.

*update*

After more plays at yucata, I love this game! it feels like Coloretto, I guess Zoloretto too but I have never played it, but at the same time it has a different touch, enough to justify owning both.

This is probably the best dice version of a boardgame I have played to date.

Just lovely. A great little dice game, with plenty of second guessing your opponents. Cute theme, too, with attractive components. Plays in 10 minutes, so it's a superb filler. Update: with more plays, this just gets better, contrary to my initial expectation. A lot of drama in a little box.

Simple dice game, but often offering deep strategies of taking a hit now and maybe winning later and trying to balance your zoo to minimize minuses and on the same time trying to get as much bonuses as you can. Tough dcisions sometimes And it is short and fun. Ideal filler.

Amazing 2 player strategy. Rules are simple, allowing players to focus on strategy. Lots of interesting options on each turn, and the dice make each turn unique. Turns into a party game with 3 or more.

Zooloretto: The Dice game is a short, funny and surprisingly tactical filler that plays under 10 minutes with two players. A lot of game under a very simple rule set.

I'll have to see how it holds up after more plays and how it works with different number of players.

edit. Probably best with three players but the 2-player game is still very nice. 4-player game is not really worth the time.
edit. Holding up really nicely. One of the best short&simple dice fillers.

Excellent game. The best bits of zooloretto boiled down into a nice looking dice game: the decisions surrounding how to frame other players decisions. Plenty of push-your-luck and screwage.

I play in a less cut-throat manner with my 5yo daughter, who understands the game and handles the decisions well on her own. She doesn't have down the idea of handing your opponent a board without good options but that will come with time.

Zooloretto: The Dice Game does an excellent job of distilling the game play and feel of the original Zooloretto game into a quick-playing game using dice. I'm very impressed with this streamlined design. It's easy to teach and fun to play. Although I do really enjoy the full Zooloretto game as well, this game is great to pull out with new/casual/family/non-gamer players as well as when there just isn't time to play a full game of Zooloretto. I highly recommend this game!

You could probably get all the Zooloretto you need with this DICE game and the COLORETTO card game. Pretty slick. I wish the dice game had the capacity and scalability to add more players. Maybe if I buy two sets I could play up to 6 without breaking the game. But the economy changes quickly in that case, so I dunno.

I love Zooloretto, Aquaretto, and Coloretto and I tend to really enjoy dice games, so I was eager to get my hands on this one. I'm mainly played it with 3 players (once with 2 and once with 4) and for three or 4 I think it works great. I didn't like it with 2 -- since you only get to roll 6 dice overall each round just felt very samey (roll, roll, roll, take, take). With 3 or 4 players things feel much more tense as you really need to weigh taking a truck vs. rolling the dice and possibly helping other players more than you. Great little game overall, especially if you like the others in the series. Unfortunately, until an official US release, tracking down a German copy can be a bit tricky and possibly more expensive than it's worth.
