Vlog Ep. 140: Making Animal Friends at the New York Zoo

We took some time off from Baduy Pride to fully enjoy the long weekend, but we're finally back with another board game feature. Today's episode was about a new favorite - Uwe Rosenberg's New York Zoo! This abstract strategy game is surprisingly simple to learn but quite deep in terms of actual strategy with its combination of tile placement, grid coverage, and other game mechanics coming together to create a uniquely enjoyable game experience.

This game has it all! First, there's the joy of creating a park for both zoo animals and a few amusement park-style amenities. And then there's the satisfaction of finding unique piece combinations that fit together perfectly. And it goes without saying that anyone is going to celebrate the 127 cute animal figures in the set because of course, we need more wooden animal tokens in our geeky life. 

While we chose today's topic, we're always open to suggestions! If you have ideas for future video discussions, feel free to fill out this Google Form and your idea may be featured as the focus for an episode!
