A highlight of 2021 in gaming for me was Ark Nova. A superb theme with engaging mechanics, Ark Nova creates a super solo experience packed with decisions as you tell the story of building your own zoo. With a focus on conservation projects and a plethora of game conventions, the game brings the zoo-building theme to a modern audience.
