I've never had more than 5 bucks in my possession at any one time. If I get money, I tend to spend it. Likewise, everyone I play this with, seems to have the same money levels.

So, if you have 5 players... you have your wooden coins, and you have your paper coins... why so many coins?!

1.) Is this right?
2.) What's your strategy to make mo money mo money mo money!!!

A couple of the small expansions (Zooloretto: The Savings Book & Zooloretto: The Petting Zoo) both add some more ways for money to get into the game. We've never run out, but it's a closer thing with those expansions in play.

yes, for the expansions and some people exchange the money tiles against coins.

Ahhhhhhh.....

I wondered because, not that it's a bad thing, but there's a lot more wooden coins than I expect to spend or have, ever.

...if only this were real-life.

Not sure about gameplay reasons for this, but for aesthetics, it's easier to count one's money if they're all wooden coins, rather than some wooden, some tile coins stacked one on top another.

no gameplay reasons - the people just do it :-)
