Australian Menagerie Game
Australian Menagerie is a game of chance and strategy which highlights the diverse range of Australia’s wildlife and habitats.
The game though aimed at ages 6+ can be modified for younger children.
For younger children they can simply match the animal cards to the habitats. Its a great introduction the different Australian species.
For older children the aim of Menagerie is to collect as many animal cards as you can for each habitat of your nature reserve. The game can be played at 3 levels. Level 1 is for young players but it is also a starting point for all players. We suggest you play a game at Level 1 before moving on to Levels 2 and 3. Level 2 and 3 has extra challenges to protect the animals from threats to their survival, eg. fire pollution and feral animals.
The game includes 3 boards (each featuring the coast, forest and semi-arid habitats), four cards for each of the 11 Australian animals featured, 5 threat cards and 5 management strategy cards.
There are also add on habitat boards available soon - including Coral Reef, Tasmania, Red Centre, Rainforest
