Hi, in the site of Michael Schacht I've found a table describing how to combine Zooloretto with its expansions, but not all. I've found only "combination rules" for Gorilla and Polar Bear but not King K., Grizzly, Iberian Lynx, Reindeer and Christmas Tree.

Also there are no rules for combining Zooloretto Exotic and the other expansions.

Can someone help me?

If you look on the cards that come with these bonus tiles it explains how to do it. Essentially you can play with as many of these as you want. The first player to fill his 6-tile enclosure gets his pick of the available tiles. The second person to fill their enclosure gets their pick of whats left, etc.

Thanks for your explanation, but that wasn't what I meant. Maybe my question isn't clear enough...

I meant compatibility of ALL expansions and not only mini expansions. For example in Schacht site seems that Mission Cards cannot be plaied with Polar Bear (but only with Gorilla). Is it true?

If you understand german, you may want to look http://www.spielefreun.de/zooloretto/.

If german is not for you, use google translate

That's a pity - maybe some other translation program will do?

I've tried with Babylon, but Google is still better...

Anyway, if I've understood correctly, all expansions can be played all together and they all are compatible, even if it's better not to combine Aquaretto and Zooloretto.

At this point I wonder why Michael Schacht has proposed those combinations.

Do some combinations make the game unbalanced or simply make the game too longer or too hard?

It is only unbalanced with Aquaretto because you can get an awful lot of money and won't spend it as every coin can be 2 vp in Aquaretto.

Of course it gets (a bit) longer, but certainly not too hard. You shouldn't play with all expansions at once if you don't know them, but just because there are to many rules to fiddle with.

Combining Aquaretto and The Savings Book is not a good idea. Whoever first invests a coin on the savingsbook, and keeps it up will win if they also let 2 coworkers work as cashiers.
