This thread grows out of the many posts on ZooChat about how you would do things differently. Except this thread is intended to be interactive... if you play, you will pose as the director of a real zoo. You may announce changes to exhibits, relocation of animals, new exhibits being built. Other ZooChat members may respond with real-world situations for you: "the boilers in the Jungle building have failed and the repair/replacement will cost $500,000...where are you getting that from?" or "A keeper has broken the rules and, in attempting to hand feed a polar bear, has lost a hand. How do you respond?" In the role of Zoo Director, you will try to respond to the situation that has come up . You may well be asked what effect this has on your other plans. If you stray too far from accepted reality, other ZooChat members are invited to call you on it. Such as, "How are you going to raise $50miilion in two moinths while your attendance has dropped and a new museum is being built in your city with philanthropic donations?" I'd ask other ZooChat members to think of real events to pose as challenges and not simply attempt to overwhelm or murder our Fantasy Zoo Director. Let's see what else there is to running a zoo. Any takers?
