Every year, the animals go on a rafting tour on the wild river, and nobody wants to miss out on the fun — but will there be enough room for all?

At the start of each round in Zoowaboo, players lay out ten animal tokens around the one raft. One animal card is then drawn to represent the first animal that boards the raft. Each player has two chits — Yes and No — and they secretly vote on whether they think all animals revealed so far will fit on the raft. If all players say “Yes”, then reveal the next animal card and vote again. If some players vote “Yes” while others vote “No”, then those players who voted “Yes” flip over the sand timer and work as a team to try to fit all of the animals on the raft. The players of whichever team guessed correctly wins points depending on the round, and whoever has the most points after six rounds wins.
