What is Animal Upon Animal about?
Animal Upon Animal is a 2-4 player game, initially intended for children but equally as enticing for adults. The objective of the game is to be the most skilful at stacking and be the first left without any animals. Animal Upon Animal is an engaging and addictive game, with its colourful wooden animals and their different unique shapes requiring players to strategically think about the placement of their animals in order for their stacked tower to not fall. Whether it be taking the challenging approach of stacking animals straight up or strategically placing animals by their shapes and sizes, everyone will have crazy fun playing! This game uses a die component to determine different factors of their animal pyramid. For example, rolling an alligator on a die will expand the base of a player’s pyramid and rolling 1 dot will require players to take an animal from their provision and place it carefully with one hand on the pyramid. If animals tumble down during stacking or the whole pyramid collapses, the stacking ends immediately. The game ends as soon as a player is left without animals and they win!!
