Some bears stand over 10 feet tall and weigh 1 ton, so caring for them is surely a challenge. In Bärenpark, players will attempt to build the best bear park not only for the most massive Kodiak bears, but also polar bears and even Koalas! Yes, we hear you, Koalas aren’t bears. But they were too cute to leave out so they’re here! Design the bear park that pleases the most visitors, placing animal enclosures, restrooms and shops to win the game!
In more detail, each player in Bärenpark builds their own bear park, attempting to make it as beautiful as they can, while also using every square meter possible. The park is created by combining polyomino tiles onto a grid, with players scoring for animal houses, outdoor areas, completed construction, and more. The sooner you build it, the better! Cover icons to get new tiles and park sections. The game ends as soon as one player has finished expanding their park, then players tally their points to see who has won.
