'ZOO QUEST' BOARD GAME: Players taken the part of big-game hunters sent out on expeditions to capture and collect certain groups of animals for the Zoo. The players travel from Area to Area and Hunting Ground to Hunting Ground questing for animals which have been reported in the various Areas. Each player is issued with a sum of money for travel expenses, etc. and in general has a choice of either moving rapidly after animals by chartering special planes - which is, of course, very expensive, or moving on foot inside each Area, using travel vouchers for journeys between the Areas. Made by arrangement with the BBC.

The game is fully complete and in good condition throughout. The box, which is storage worn on the sides, is very nice and clean - not to mention the very young David Attenborough whose photograph graces the game box lid! The game contents are in very good condition: the money is clean, the cards and vouchers likewise, and each playing token is in excellent condition. The game board, with its beautiful illustrations, shows some signs of wear but still presents itself in nice condition. The rule booklet, complete with insert, is in fine condition. This is a nice example of a very rare game.

For 2 - 6 players.
