You are a wild animal who has been taken from your natural habitat. You have just been placed into a zoo and must try to survive your days in captivity. Each day is a physical and psychological battle against thirst, hunger, loneliness, and many other stresses. How long can you last before you spiral into zoochosis? Each player has their own pens that fill up with tokens as the game progresses. Eventually, the player can only move back and forth or die before reaching that point. The goal is to survive the longest.
