We referred to many books and documents as we worked on creating this game.
Since there weren’t many books nor documents that focused on/specialized in numbers of babies/eggs of animals (marsupials, birds, fish, insects, etc.), we took some time to gradually collect as much information about the number of babies/eggs of animals from many different bibliographies as possible.

Japanese card game of animals


It was a tough road for us to get to the completion of creating this game, since the number of babies/eggs were different depending on documents we referred to.
On the next page we describe the reasons why different books and documents state different number of babies/eggs for the same animal (marsupial, bird, fish, insect, etc.) together with the actual bibliographies. All bibliographies we referred to are in Japanese language.
