In KuZOOka, players are trying to help zoo animals form an escape plan to break out. They receive new item cards each turn, and use these cards to formulate a escape plan. On their turn, a player either proposes a new escape attempt or ends a current escape. They indicate how far they can get on the board to the other players by placing their player marker on the board. Animals gain experience from each attempt, which gives them more cards for later rounds, and they also have special abilities that they can use once a day.
The game box comes with 96 cards, 120 wooden animal tokens, a two-sided game board, 20 experience point markers, a start player megaphone, and 2 sets of rules. This game is for two to six players, ages 8 and up, and plays in 30-45 minutes. It will retail for $39.99.
Pegasus Spiele will also release Animotion, a new family party game, into U.S. retail (see "'Animotion' into U.S. Retail").
