Outback

In Outback, the rangers need your help relocating animals to safer ground.  Only with lucky dice and a strategic assortment of animals can your preserve have the chance to win.  Each player starts with an empty outback landscape board.  On a turn you will roll six animal dice up to three times and take the corresponding animal(s) from the jeep and place it on your board.  Rolling multiple matching symbols allows you to place your animals higher up on your board thereby scoring more points.  Additionally, you gain bonus points for creating groups of like animals.  Each player's board has a score track around it's perimeter. Each of the 5 animal types has it's own scoring token. The object is to get all of the animals as high on your score track as possible.  With an interesting scoring mechanism you will only score the animals that make it to the top portion of your score track and only the bottom three that are along the left side of your board.  You'll want to make sure that you have gotten all of the animals at of the starting negative point zone.
