This is a preorder. Preorder items are not yet available. The quantity available and “in stock” notations are the quantities we have available for advance order.
Our preorder system has some unique characteristics. Each order may contain only a single preorder product, and no other products, preorder or otherwise. If a customer adds a preorder product to a non-empty cart, the cart will be automatically emptied, and the preorder product added. Items can be ordered individually. This ensures the preorder will be shipped when it becomes available and does not hold up any other items you may have ordered. Due to the way this system works, if you preorder several things and they all ship on the same day we will reimburse you the difference in shipping costs as we process your order.
All preorders require full payment at the time the preorder is placed. Image, contents, and release date are subject to change. If you cancel your preorder before we ship your item, we reserve the right to refund your payment minus the credit card or PayPal fee associated with your order.
How to Play (Walkthrough)
In Ark Nova, you will plan and design a modern, scientifically managed zoo. With the ultimate goal of owning the most successful zoological establishment, you will build enclosures, accommodate animals, and support conservation projects all over the world. Specialists and unique buildings will help you in achieving this goal.
At the heart of Ark Nova are 255 cards featuring animals, specialists, unique enclosures, and conservation projects, each with a particular ability. Use them to increase the appeal and scientific reputation of your zoo and to collect conservation points. Each player has a set of action cards, which you will use and upgrade to carry out your plans.
Each player has a set of five action cards to manage their gameplay, and the power of an action is determined by the slot the card currently occupies. The cards are:
– BUILD: Allows you to build standard or special enclosures, kiosks, and pavilions.
– ANIMALS: Allows you to accommodate animals in your zoo.
– CARDS: Allows you to gain new zoo cards (animals, sponsors, and conservation project cards).
– ASSOCIATION: Allows your association workers to carry out different tasks.
– SPONSORS: Allows you to play a sponsor card in your zoo or to raise money.
With a lot of love for the theme, game designer Mathias Wigge has created an interestingly interwoven game. With high replayability and rich components, Ark Nova provides a remarkable gaming experience that will bring the game to the table again and again.
