The Animals card is laid in the number 1 slot and the other four cards are random to the other slots. There are a multitude of ways to achieve this, from reputation moves on animals and sponsors to sponsoring a conservation project.

IGN listed the game as one of the best strategy games, considering the game to have a "similarly smooth blend of different mechanics" Terraforming Mars, and commented positively on its action selection system. The placement of animals is somewhat abstracted out but it’s done so in a way that keeps you in the game rather than having to fiddly around keeping track of things. Once all the scoring is completed, players will need to calculate their victory points and the final ranking. Fortunately, this situation has now been rectified and it’s widely available but this tells you something about how hotly anticipated this game has been.It combines a litany of ideas from other complex games in a sort of “greatest hits” mashup of mechanics, producing a satisfying intellectual challenge with very quick turns. Playing this card at strength 5 allows players to support one of the conservation projects in play or to add a new one and support it directly.

All cards are used at their base level (blue side) at the beginning of the game but they could be upgraded to their red side during the game to become more efficient. This event is generally useful to all players as it allows them to collect income based on reputation, on conditions listed on the cards in the zoo, and to score kiosks and gazebos. If you triggered the end of the game, your appeal is likely to have passed the conservation token therefore your score should be positive.One last point of note: each player can only have one association worker per slot on the association board.

Ark Nova from Capstone Games and Feuerland provides you with the opportunity to create a modern Zoo by building pens, populating them with all types of endangered and non-endangered animals, build attractions and rides, gain sponsorships, partner up with other zoos from across the world and finally release animals back into the wild using clever conservation programs. Once you’ve finally played your latest animal acquisition, you take your reward: appeal or, if you’re very lucky, conservation points. The bonuses from upgrading the other cards, such accessing the higher reaches of the reputation track (from cards), are more useful later in the game as, while they give you more bonuses from the upgraded actions themselves, you will most likely not see as much benefit from them as you do from association. If this has not happened by the end of the game, one of the two cards should be discarded before starting the end-game scoring. Used judiciously, these abilities can allow you to chain together some clever combos – being granted a second animal placement action, only to place a herding herbivore into the same enclosure I just filled will never not bring a smile to my face.It’s an incredible game in just about every dimension — it’s just not the accessible title that’s going to cross into the mainstream and expand the audience. While flipping any cards as quickly as you can is a good idea, there are some cards in Ark Nova which unlock specific actions that you tend to use earlier than others. However, Law praised the strategy, "brief turns", "careful streamlining", and money represented as only a single currency. The calculation is pretty straightforward although the rulebook may not result very clear at first glance. And given the complexity of some of the game’s systems and the depth of strategy required, that feels just right to me.
