zoo king It’s been a mainstay of management games for over two decades, and frankly I’m shocked and appalled that it took this long to let someone make a board game about it.
There are so many adaptations with monsters and sword-holding plastic minis, and very few for games where you can build pretty things for cute animals, so it’s great to see Treecer get the chance to do just that in an officially licensed release.
