LuZa (#50148),

O Zoo Le Mio is in a box with the meeples and benches. Zoosim is in the tube. O Zoo Le Mio is the one that should be in the stores now - O Zoo Le Mio is the one I bought and the one I think you are looking for.

Re:Which edition?
Thanks Brian,
so the O Zoole Mio version has the different coloured meeples?
What do you think of the game itself?

Re:Which edition?
I'm also interested. What's the difference between the Zoch/Rio Grande (O Zoo) and Cwali (Zoosim) editions?

Dear modboy,
One significant difference I see is that the Zoosim version used black meeples for all of the park visitors and park benches. The Rio Grande version has different coloured meeples for the visitors (5 different colours to match the 5 different animal types) and it has park bench pieces. Overall, it must be must simple to figure out majorities, etc.

sorry for the delay in responding.
Exactly, the colored meeples make the game A LOT easier to figure. Furthermore the box is square and little, so easier to put on a shelf instead of the awful tube of Zoosim.

Hey, I like the Tin version. It looks special!

2 ways to solve the meeple colour problem:

1) Paint the meeples yourself.
2) Plunder meeples from some other game (Carcassone and Global Powers comes to mind!)

3) Do as I did and wrap short lengths of yarn around them. I suppose now I'll have to post a picture...

So where are the pictures of your yarn clad meeples?

I submitted a couple of photos, but they got rejected! The reasoning: they were fuzzy. Well of course they're fuzzy -- have you ever seen yarn look unfuzzy?? I'll resubmit them again -- maybe they'll get approved by a moderator with some insight...

Saw the picture! Great idea! Looks better than my poorly painted meeples...

I think we can be friends!

So which edition is supposedly "better"?

Since both versions play exactly the same, the determination of which edition is "better" comes down to personal preferences and aesthetics. The O Zoo Le Mio edition contains the colored pieces that greatly aid the visual management of the game, and its box is conforms to boardgaming norms of being rectilinear (as opposed to ZooSim's cylinder). But I've never been crazy about this edition's name; I prefer ZooSim, which is a more direct and less silly name. I like my ZooSim edition, and feel that my yarn-clad meeples not only solve the visual problems but also make the game somewhat charming. YMMV

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it appears as if the older ZooSim does not contain park benches to indicate closed areas, but instead uses meeples laid flat to indicate a bench? The newer O Zoo le Mio includes wooden park benches, which I personally prefer.

You are correct, there are no benches in ZooSim. Perhaps we're a bit strange, but we don't mind placing a "dead meeple" whenever we form a loop.
