Choking Hazard

NOT A TOY! Choking hazard. Not suitable for children under three years.


Bear parks: its the next big thing! In order to be successful, you must skillfully fit together enclosures, animal houses and green areas, and use every available inch of your land. Animal houses and enclosures are worth points, and are more valuable if you build themquickly. Construction crews let you claim more land to build onto. When one player fills their park, the game is over and the player with the most points wins.

Bärenpark by Phil Walker-Harding (Imhotep) lets you build your very own bear park! Maybe you want another Polar Bear enclosure or you like a Koala Bear* housing better? Whatever you do, don't forget to claim your next building permit in order to enlarge your park area as the food street and toilets for your customers need to be build somewhere, too. Planning and building your park in the most efficient way is key in this family frendly puzzle game!

Up to four players age 8 and up find a quick and fun game with this Tetris-like puzzle game. Place enclosures, animal houses and green ares skillfully on your park board to fill it up as quickly as possble, because who achieves this first gets the most points!

*Koala Bears might be marsupials by definition, but they are waaay too cute to be excluded from a game about bears!

Correction "Blame the Koala"
Rules (German)


The number (depending on player count) of green areas on the supply board is another than the number in the rule book. Which do I use?

The number from the rules is the correct one. You can find a correction PDF in the download area.

HINT: This misprint does only occure in the first print and was corrected for all other prints afterwards.

You do know that Koala Bears are no bears, right?

Yes, we know the definition. But if you ever had the luck to look into the big cute eyes of a Koala Bear, you too wouldn't leave them out from a game like Bärenpark!
