I love the ability to pay one time to get an item instead of placing it on a truck! This is a great idea to goad people into finishing their '6' enclosure early on.

A nice,non-essential Zooloretto expansion, that doesn't really change much. HOWEVER, for those who play Zooloretto regularly, it is a dream to have The Gorilla for those occasions where you wish you could just add the tile you just drew straight to an enclosure!

--Jan2009-- Yeah; I bought this one too. It seems a harmless alternative to the Polar Bear. Perhaps in a 4-5 player game the various powers of the two would be more significant than they were in our first 2p outing.

Very small addition to the game, doesn't add that much usually but I guess it can be game deciding from time to time. No need to get if you don't have it.

Take it or leave it. It provides a nice incentive to fill up the big enclosure, so since the addition is so minimal, I would probably always use it. Though if it wasn't there, I wouldn't miss it.

Really nice ability to this promo. The ability to immediatly take a tile you have drawn and add it to your zoo is really quite powerful.


They make a nice change and a reward for completing the 6- enclosure so I will play then every once in a while.

Birthday gift from Bruce. You get the Gorilla for being the first to finish the large exhibit, much like the Polar Bear. But then you can spend a coin to take (one time) the tile you draw directly, rather than loading it onto a truck. Better than the Polar Bear.

Disclaimer: I'm not really fond of Zooloretto, so the best rating one of these mini-expansions can get is about a 5. To me, Zooloretto adds unnecessary complexity to an elegant game (Coloretto), and once you start adding in mini-expansions, you start to see a bit more complexity. With the Polar Bear, though, there's at least a minimal impact on the game itself, since it's something passive you get as a reward, and doesn't require you to track or manage something extra in the game. Its impact is rather minimal, points-wise (unless you wound up taking some truly horrible boats during the game), and other than adding extra incentive for filling the large pen (as if the 10 points weren't enough already), it doesn't detract from the base game at all.

No one really ever cared that the Gorilla was available. Not balanced at all. Sort of disrupted the game we thought.

I don't mark plays of expansions like this. The gorilla is good, but right now, he didn't seem to be as good as the Polar Bear. Also, in our game, the person who got the gorilla didn't get a chance to use him. Maybe if using both, the gorilla comes out on the five enclosure? Food for thought.

The Gorilla is ok. The Bank feature that comes with the gorilla is great - save a penny, make a penny a couple of turns later...great way to get a bit more money in a game that is tight with it.
