A Fistful of Penguins is another in a series from Wattsalpoag Games of Bellevue, Washington.
Here come the animals!  Add lions, camels, and kangaroos to your zoo in this simple dice game the whole family can enjoy.  Lions are a big draw, but they scare the camels.  Those pesky squirrels will pilfer your peanuts, but a moose won’t go anywhere without a squirrel.  And, the more kangaroos the better.  Use your penguins wisely, and you can have the best zoo in the country!
In A Fistful of Penguins, players roll the dice to see which animals are available for their zoo.  Some animals score more in big groups, some score better together, and some won’t score with other animals present.  Spend penguin tokens to buy more dice or to re-roll the dice you have.  If you roll a penguin, you get another penguin to spend.  Make the most money you can in three rounds to win the game.

Who knew collecting animals coud be so much fun!
