Boardgame(s) – Coloretto/Zooleretto

Today’s games are the card game Coloretto and the related board game Zooloretto, both from Rio Grand Games/AbacusSpiele. Both of these require you get sets of cards or pieces which you then score at the end of each turn, but there’s an element of risk-taking while you let the sets build up because someone else might take the set you want or add in cards you don’t need or want.

Coloretto is one of the earliest card games we got after we’d been playing Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne for a few years. Personally, I don’t really like it that much, but the rest of the family do, and that inspired playing the board game version based on the card game.

The card game is relatively easy to learn to play, and the scoring system is straight-forward. Our kids have played from about age 4-5 on.
