The dice are kung-fu fighting in Charlie Price’s Kung-Fu Zoo, coming from WizKids next February.

Kung-Fu Zoo uses dice to represent a variety of zoo animals - elephants, cheetah, gorillas, and zebras - who secretly challenge each other to kung-fu battles late at night after the zoo has closed.  The game is played on a vacuum-formed plastic board with a raised lip around the outside, similar to some Crokinole boards.  Holes in the four corners of the board represent the animal cages.  Players flick their dice onto the board, hoping to knock their rivals into the cages, or simply knock them over.  The last animal standing will be the night’s kung-fu champion.

The game includes the game board, 16 animal dice, and 4 animal cards.  It was designed for 2 to 4 players, ages 14 and up, and plays in about half an hour.  MSRP is $39.99.

WizKids has announced plans to release three other games in early 2018, including (see “Hack a Dystopian Future in ‘’ From WizKids”), Team Play, and Blade Runner 2049:  Nexus Protocol (see “Find the Replicant in ‘Blade Runner 2049:  Nexus Protocol’”).
