Designer: Carlo A. Rossi
Publisher: Rio Grande Games
Players: 2 to 4 (or more)
Time: 30 minutes
This is a fun kids' game - with a semi-cooperative element in there too - that was nominated for the Kinderspiel des Jahres in 2009.
There are six different rafts in the game ,and each round ten of the animal cards are laid out around one of the rafts.
Players then vote on whether they think all the animals will fit. If everyone votes "yes", another animal is added.
As soon as someone votes "no", the remaining "yes" voters have one minute to work together and get all of the animals on the raft!
Simple and fun, and really good for the family.
An interesting point:
The designer of the game submitted it to the publisher as a 3-8 player game and the publisher changed it, as they felt with larger numbers that someone might get left out of the puzzle element in the second half of the round if too many people vote "yes".
So don't be afraid to try this one if there's 5 or 6 of you in the family ... You'll just have to make more yes/no voting chits.
