Zooloretto Mini is the little brother to the 2007 Spiel des Jahres-winning Zooloretto, and as in that game each player is the zoo director of a small zoo. They must bring new animals into their zoos and arrange landscape tiles on the grounds. Points are awarded at the end of the game for both. Zooloretto Mini is a standalone game with simpler rules, shorter game length and fewer components.
Zooloretto Junior, released in 2016, is identical to Zooloretto Mini except for a few changes: different cover art, no bag to hold the tiles, and the inclusion of a panda disc instead of a panda figurine.
