In O Zoo le Mio, each player is a zoo manager constructing their own zoo by bidding on and then placing tiles that depict different animal exhibits and walking paths around the exhibits.
The goal is to attract more visitors to your zoo. Visitors are attracted by large zoo areas of the different types of animals - apes, mammals, birds, reptiles, and sea creatures. Tiles also have walking paths that must be lined up, and making a closed loop walking path scores a bonus. Having the most trees in a zoo also gives a bonus.
