I love trivia games, especially ones where trivia isn't the only component of the game, and this is no exception. A real favourite of mine!

Very simple yet addictive animal-trivia game, perfect for short -45 min- family plays. You don't need to know the exact answer as to where does an animal live, or how long it is, or how much does it weight. Instead, you guess categories (its mass between 10 and 20 kg, or its length between 50 and 70 cm) and the region(s) where it thrives.
This mechanism is much more useful for kids imho, for they learn estimating actual physical quantities, besides learning simple but accurate facts about animals.
A sure winner for winter family plays, or short adult plays alongside Ticket to Ride or Yspahan, in between playing El Grande, Puerto Rico, Agricola, Power Grid, or Tigris&Euphrates...

Il grande Friedemann Friese non si smentisce! Con la sua originalità riesce sempre a creare giochi bilanciati e soprattutto scorrevoli, in più ha il pregio di essere adatto alle famiglie. Considerato un Animal Trivia, occorre indovinare... sulla mappa del mondo dove vive, peso, altezza e in alcuni casi lunghezza della... coda!!! Si trascorrono partite veloci, divertenti e interattive. La rigiocabilità è garantita dal fatto che non si possono memorizzare tutte le caratteristiche degli animali: giocandoci non troppo spesso risulta ottimamente longevo. Ottimo Family-Game. Veloce, semplice da imparare, divertente ed istruttivo.

Great game!If translated in English it would be top 100.This is the game that you can play with any member of your family,gamer or non-gamer friends.Trivia and waging,with a very nice theme.Takes globalissimo to another level!Still there is room for improvement though,to make the perfect game.There could be more betting categories,like e.g. what the animals eat,how long they live etc.EXPANSION PLEASE!

Ez egy egyszerűen nagyszerű darab, nem is gondoltam, hogy ilyen jó kis játék. Semmi köze az eurokhoz, de kis taktika van benne.
De, hogy általános tudás kell-e hozzá, abban nem vagyok 100%ig biztos.

This is a winning combination of trivia & game play. I really love that you do not need to actually know the animal (actually most of the time we don't since they are all in German) to make a good guess at stats other than regions it inhabits. I do hope someone does and English version at some point, but we have a lot of fun with it as it is.

Fun game. It's sort of a trivia game, but there are enough options that you can usually do pretty good by guessing and following the lead of the other players.

Update: Moving this from an 8 to a 9. Such a great game to play with non-gamers, and still a lot of fun for gamers. And the amount of variety is great: after 13 plays we still have plenty of unused animal cards.

Rated after 17 plays. Much better than an average trivia game, because the animals might be so exotic, that you can't know, you need to guess. So the game is kind of softer, more relaxed and funnier. Also you don't need to know exactly, it is enough that you are close. Or at least closer than others. A nice game for non-gamers, too. Counting the points seems to be a little bit complicated at times.

Updated after 34 plays, because you can follow others, it gives a nice option to gamers as well. Black side with exotic animals is really fun! And educative, if you can remember something from the correct answers.

Very good game that merges some concepts from Manimals with Wits & Wagers betting. Works very well, though it runs a tad long--about an hour. For what it is, I think 40 minutes would be the very top end of how long you'd want to play.

Fauna takes my interest in animals and turns it into a really enjoyable game. I'm not the greatest at knowing everything there is to know about animals, and if I didn't know that before, this game certainly makes me aware. That being said, you never really feel as if you're just terrible and you usually feel like you're in it for the most part. Even if you don't know a thing about the animal in question, you can usually follow your opponents and do well...or you all fail! Lots of fun and really turns learning into a fun experience.

Those who are rating this as a trivia game are missing the point entirely. Yes, the theme is animal trivia: but the player who knows everything about zoology isn't necessarily going to be the winner. The winner will be the player who is the better gambler (given the risk of losing betting cubes), and knows best how to psyche out his opponents! An awful lot of mind games going on here.

Friedemann Friese has done the impossible: he has made a "trivia" game not just interesting, but tense! Wits & Wagers is kinda of the unpolished version of Fauna, and Friedemann Friese has actually succeeded in what the former game failed to do.

Wonderful game! My wife and I really seem to enjoy games with a map of some kind. Coincidence or not this is another game we really enjoy. The game is very simple, you are shown an animal and you may guess it's weight, length, tail length or where it lives in the world. It is amazing to me how close you can get to accurately guessing some of these facts. But you don't have to, you can just be close to right and still get points. You can even guess more than once if you have enough player blocks.

This game plays similar in style to Wits and Wagers, except there is no betting. If you think someone else is right with a guess you can try to bank points by winning a spot adjacent to their guess. This is a great educational game like the 10 Days series is...another words you learn without really trying.

This game is sometimes very funny. My favorite thing is the length of the tail. Sometimes the picture shows maybe a tail...maybe not... Do you guess 0 inches or do you go with 1 to 3 inches? Also, the length of the animal. Some animals could be huge or very small...your just not sure...it's very funny seeing what everyone thinks.

Fauna is a great family trivia game, which allows players not only to think about answers but also to take into account the actions of their opponents. It is as much about mind-games and reading the other players as it is about actual knowledge.


It is this sort of decision making that enables me to still hate trivia games but at the same time really enjoy Fauna.

Trivia about animal info. Our 12 year old does very well at this. There is some "gaming" it as you can put your markers in areas that are adjacent to as many other areas as possible to try to score some points. However, superior knowledge will win out every time.

Fura, az első alkalommal, amikor játszottam nagyon tetszett, valószínűleg azért, mert négyen voltunk, akkor 8,5-9 pontot adtam volna érte. Viszont azóta kettőt játszottunk ketten is, akkor nem volt annyira meggyőző a játék, így egyelőre marad a 7,5-8. Kíváncsi vagyok milyen lenne 6 személlyel, szerintem akár 9,5 is lehet!

Végre hat személlyel sikerült játszani és nagyon jó volt!, ezért emelek a pontszámon 8.2-re.

This is the most fun I've ever had with a trivia game. There's a lot more to it than just making educated guesses. Since you score being adjacent to the correct answer you have to decide at times if you are going for the correct answer or put your bet cube in an area that has many adjacent areas hoping for a better chance to be correct. Since the questions are about animals, you can make some deductions about the size and location and you get points for being in a range not just for the exact answer.

In a game like trivia pursuit you pretty much either know it or you don't and that's the extent of it. This game keeps you engaged even if you really don't have a clue due to the area placement and estimations.

This is a great party type game if you like animals as my wife and I really do. The game is very easy to learn and the animal information is fascinating and we think we already know a lot about all types on animals. What makes this game really great is that it's not just a trivia game. There is a real strategy to placing your cubes and you can get some hints from those that might have a better idea about an animal so you can still salvage points even if you have no idea. Additionally, there is a press you luck aspect as you really want to get all your cubes on the board to take up the "adjacent to the correct answer" spaces but you have to weigh that with losing your cubes if those cubes don't score at all. Just a great light party type game that really suits my wife and I and can't wait to introduce it to gamers and non-games alike.
