New Zealand Menagerie is a competitive game of chance and strategy which highlights the diverse range of New Zealand’s wildlife and habitats. The aim of Menagerie is to collect as many animal cards as you can for each habitat of your nature reserve and to protect them from threats to their survival, eg. pollution and feral animals. You score points for each animal card you have in your nature reserve at the end of each hand. The first player, or team to gain 100 points wins the game.
Animals featured include:
Blue Penguin, Kiwi, Kea, Kakapo, Takahe, Fur Seal, Tuatara, Stone Weta, Otago skink, Archey’s frog and Katipo spider.
