- 25 animals (5 elephants, 5 rhinos, 5 lions, 5 leopards, 5 zebras)
- 30 cards (6 of each animal, numbered 0 to 5)
Before each round, shuffle all of the cards.
When playing with two or four players, randomly remove two cards face down; when playing with three players, remove three cards face down.
With five players, use all 30 cards. Deal the cards evenly to all the players, who take the cards into their hands. Divide the animals into five separate groups (by species), reachable by all players.
The youngest player takes the first turn in the first round, and play proceeds clockwise. â€¦
