australian menagerie is...
"I bought Menagerie for use at school but I can't wrestle it away from my own children who have become obsessed with playing it! It is a great product but extra habitat cards would be useful for using with a class. Congratulations! I look forward to seeing future products of this kind."

"I am 15 years old and I think your game is the best game in the world. Menagerie is a lot better the Monopoly or Uno. We are going to order all of the add-on packs for our family. I like how you put different facts on the bottom of each card. Many thanks for the game."
"I thought the game was great. I met you at the Kosciuszko Education Centre where Dad purchased the game. We took it up on a short holiday to Lake Tinaroo with some friends. They really enjoyed the game."

"I recently visited Kosciuszko National Park and I went in the area where there was all types of expermints which I loved. There was also a Menagerie game on display and me and my mum played. I loved it, so did my mum. But she would not buy it. I thought about how I really loved the game and was upset my mum wouldn't buy it so I bought it with my own money which I usually hate to do. I was afraid I would regret it but now I know I never will. When I first took out the game and explained the rules my brother Patrick (7) said "thats boring". My mum quickly reassured him and told him it was very good. Well at the end of a few rounds my brother was begging to play again. I think the game is absolutely fantastic and so do my brother and mother. I thank the creators of the game whom I met and also the artists who did a wonderful job and anyone else who participated."

"We met you at the education centre in Kosciuszko National Park. We bought Menagerie cause we really liked it so we bought all the add-ons. We think it's great."

"Just thought I'd write and say thanks for one of the best games on the market. My 7yr old twins were given the basic game for Christmas and since then we have added each of the add-ons."
"We are the family in England who got very hooked on your excellent Menagerie game, so that my mother had to badger you for the Add-On Habitats. They arrived and we have been playing the game every evening since, with great pleasure. We would like to thank you for your very entertaining and intelligent product. My son, Michael, who is five, is a huge fan and loves the game, He thinks his favourite animal at the moment is the mountain grasshopper, but he also loves the Tasmanian animals."
"My name is Bryony and I am nearly five years old. Your game is good because I like the animals and my whole family likes playing the game, but not my little brother because he is only one year old."

"My name is Matthew Bushe and I am a university student in Canberra studying to become a Primary School teacher. I recently played this new game, and was extremely excited as it is so suitable for a classroom. Australian Menagerie would be perfect in accompanying any geography or social science curriculum. I intend on having a number of copies in my classroom when I begin teaching. It is absolutely fantastic to see a game that Australians can enjoy and from which they may also learn. Knowledge obtained through the use of this game is vital for all that live in this awe-inspiring country."
"The game was great as it showed what Australian animals lived in what area and what their predators were."
Beth & Sam, Jindabyne (13 & 15 years old)
"The game was fantastic, as it showed where all these creatures live and what is dangerous to them. I got to meet one of the inventors of this great game and it was so exciting."
