  • includes animals from all around the world that face extinction
  • creates awareness of the various threats and causes of extinction
  • is based on the principles of STEM and integrates science (biology) and math (logical thinking and deductive reasoning)
  • encourages players to take further interest in learning about nature and conservation


Players attempt to deduce the identity of their opponent’s animal, by asking questions and comparing the answers to their key of twenty animals.

But don’t ask about the appearance of the animals—focus instead on their prominent attributes, what threatens them, and their conservation status.

“Is your animal increasing or decreasing in numbers?” “Is it a mammal?” “Is it threatened by deforestation?” If the answers to all these questions was “yes”, then the mystery animal is a giant panda.

 Play the game and guess them all!
