Magnavox Odyssey Fun Zoo

A racing game using an overlay of a zoo, with a third player drawing animal cards for the players to race to

One of the six Odyssey add-on games released in 1972, Fun Zoo is an educational game targeted at pre-school children. It works with game card #2 originally supplied with the system.

The Zoo Keeper picks up one of the 28 included cards and names the animal or object it depicts. The players now need to navigate the player spot along the yellow paths to the cage containing the animal or object the Zoo Keeper named, in order to win that card. Straying from the path and lighting a wrong cage means losing one of the previously earned cards.
