  1. Fauna

    All details for the board game Fauna and similar games

    Fauna is a captivating educational board game that invites 2-6 players to explore the animal kingdom. Each round, players are presented with a single animal, identified only by name and picture, and they must guess various aspects of its biology such as weight, length, height, tail length, and notably, the geographic regions where the animal resides. The game incorporates a strategic element where players place their tokens on a large map or on scales to indicate their guesses. Once a player places their token on a particular area or measurement, no one else can choose the same spot for that round, adding a competitive twist to the guessing game. Accuracy is rewarded with points, and even near misses can earn a player some credit, but incorrect guesses result in tokens being temporarily removed from play. The game proceeds through several rounds, each featuring a new animal, until a player reaches the predetermined score to win, typically after 8-12 rounds.
