Zooloretto

Zooloretto

YES! More boardgame conversions please. I buy all of these in hopes that more will show up, because I’m a boardgame fanatic. This is one of the more approachable boardgames, even for families, and it’s quite good. Simple, but interesting decisions, cute theme, and short play time. The goal of the game is to create the most successful zoo, by having the best combination of animals and stands. Each turn you draw a tile or play a money action. Tiles drawn are either of an animal, a coin, or a stand, which are then placed in one of three awaiting trucks. When you see a truck that has a nice combination of goods for your zoo, use your turn to nab it and plop the new goodies in your zoo. The presentation of the iPhone version is particularly nice, with a nice little multi-part zoo for each player to deposit their cute little animals and a pretty effective interface. I like it. Plus, the likeness of me that they’ve created, with the monocle, is quite striking, IMO.
