Do any of the Zooloretto expansions work with Mini? I'm pretty much sold on Mini as it is, but I am curious if I'd be able to expand it should the game become as big a hit as I suspect it could with my family.

I don't see why some of the smaller expansions included in Zooloretto: Rio Grande Games Expansion Pack #1 wouldn't work with Mini. Most of them just add extra tiles or components and the size of the Mini tiles are the same as those in the larger game. Exotic and Boss won't work, though, because they add new parts to the board. Not sure if XXL would work.

Yeah, mostly I'd be interested in adding animal types until my youngest is a little older and able to grasp the full mechanics of Zooloretto.

But there are no new animal types in any of the expansions (except Exotic).

You can download all of the expansions (except XXL, Exotic and Boss) here:

http://zooloretto.com/zooUS.html

Three Extra Enclosures wouldn't work, as the animals are different

The Petting Zoo wouldn't work as it provide coins which are not used in Mini.


Three Extra Buildings wouldn't work, as they are stalls which are not used in Mini, or cost coins, which are not used in Mini.

Building Sites could be used, except for the Stall building sites.

Polar Bear could be used, but as there are not one but three size-6 enclosurese, your would have to house rule it.

Job Boards wouldn't work, as the animals are different.

The Savings Book wouldn't work, as it requires coins which is not part of Mini.

The Gorilla wouldn't work as it requires coins which are not part of Mini.

The Reindeer could be used.

King K. wouldn't work as it requires coins which are not part of Mini.

Grizzley wouldn't work as it requires coins which are not part of Mini.

Christmas Tree wouldn't work as it requires coins which are not part of Mini.

Lynx wouldn't work as it requires money actions/coins which are not part of Mini.

Octopus wouldn't work as it requires coins which are not part of Mini.

Big Boss is strictly for Zooloretto Boss.

The Training Camp and Three Co-Worker Tiles are strictly for Aquaretto.

The Trains are strictly for Aquaretto.

The Chameleon is strictly for Zooloretto Exotic.

Personally I wouldn't get any of the expansions for Mini, unless you are prepared to do some adjustment and house rules.

Aha - did not know that. So perhaps my next purchases would be the main game and then Exotic (should the kids enjoy this as much as I think they will). Thanks!

I would advice you to go to Rio Grandes homepage, and check out the rules first.

Zooloretto is a bit more complicated than Zooloretto Mini, and Exotic adds extra boards where the new animals can go, a swell as spectators.

If you just want more animals for Zooloretto Mini, I would advice you to go to http://zooloretto.com/zooUS.html and print the Giraffes, Rhinos and Wildboars.

The animals from Zooloretto could be used in Mini, but the Exotic animals wouldn't work as they are a whole different ballgame.
