Ark Nova finds players running a modern zoo by balancing the environmental, scientific, and welfare of the animals. Through supporting conservation projects, building appropriate enclosures, and utilising the support of specialists, you will work towards having the greatest reputation in the scientific and conservation community.

A complex game with many interweaving rules, Ark Nova is a game that rewards repeated gameplay. Players use five different card actions to determine game play - Cards, Build, Animals, Association, Sponsors. As players learn how the 255 animals, specialists, conservation projects, and special effects interact with these actions, balancing the core game play actions will become an intriguing puzzle that rewards multiplayer and solo alike.
