In Zoofari players draw cards and move along a colourful zoo board in order to reach the Flamingo Oasis.

Each turn, a player draws a card and moves to the next coloured square as shown on the card. Some cards allow a piece to move to the second square of that colour while others cause one to move to a specific spot somewhere in the zoo. As well, there are "shortcuts" pictured on the board that skip a certain area of the board and there are hazards that require a player to draw a certain card before moving again.

First to the end is the victor.

This game is strikingly similar to Candy Land.

Children's game, candyland with a jungle theme. Superior to Snakes and Ladders, but similar idea.

Kids loved this game. When they got bored with Candyland this game as easily playable by them before they moved onto SORRY!

Good, solid beginner game for kids. My boys love it, but it does get tiring for parents. If I hit the ant one more time when the game is nearly done, I will lose my mind!

Basically Candy Land with Zoo animals.

All the annoyance of Candyland, but with a zoo theme. Acck.

Candyland, obviously, but the rules for the spaces where you get stuck are really bad. Instead of just losing a turn, you're stuck until you draw the color of the space you are in. Imagine how much fun it is to explain to a 3 year old that everyone else on the board gets to move round after round, but you get to sit there - possibly for the rest of the game if your luck is bad. Really poorly thought change that you almost have to house-rule in some way.
