For a kids game, this is some challenging and amusing stuff. When it comes to playing something with the tikes... this is about the best you could get.

When I heard the learn’d astronomer; When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he he lectured with

much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. W.W.

Probably my 2nd favorite of the Bright Idea games (after Gopher It). It's a memory game, but different than the standard Concentration type games, which I'm not too fond of.

Fast and fun memory exercise for grade-schoolers. Older gamers will want something more intense.

A simple memory game that does memory games justice. Although I wasnt a huge fan of this game and neither were my kids, i still enjoy the gameplay quite a bit.

Great twist on the typical kids memory game. Everyone tries to remember which object does not have a match. Interesting. Our kids love it.

Great game for a large group of kids.
A nice feature of Monkey Memory is that you can adjust the difficulty based on the kids that are playing. If people are finding it too difficult, use fewer cards or slow down when revealing cards. Too easy? More cards or speed up.

(As of 1 play) A different take on the standard memory game, with players having to keep "real time" track of item cards as they are revealed and stacked, and identify the one item that is missing. Much harder than it sounds, and provides a challenge for adult as well as child gamers.

Wo ise die Kokosnuss version.
A memory game with the advantage that one can dial in the difficulty (more or less cards). As with any memory game, need to have equally matched players to play well. Advantage of this game - simultaneous play and quick play make this a good filler that can handle larger groups (as well as kids).

One of my least favorite in Reinhard Staupe's otherwise excellent lineup of children's games. It's difficult to explain to a young player what's going on, since some of the items on the clue cards aren't in play for the game. I found this one much more difficult to teach and even house ruling different ways to play didn't work well.

We like most of the games we've tried from the Bright Ideas line, but this one just falls short for us. This may be because our memory skills vary pretty widely. It would probably be better between evenly matched players. It also seems like we spend too much time preparing the cards for each round in comparison to how long we actually play.

The kids don't suggest it very often, and neither do I.

Honestly, my kids thought this was too much like hard work than a game. It pales in comparison to Zicke Zacke Huhnerkacke, or a memory deck made from family photos. Picking which boring object out is dull after a few rounds. Affentheater lets kids make funny faces. Biberbande has a bluffing element. Der Plumpsack geht um has confusion and more than ten objects. Meine Kleine Farm has mass confusion and that argh! factor. This was dull and didn't have any monkeys in it at all.

I've played this several times with my son. We don't keep score, and we modify the rules slightly, but it's fun and he enjoys it.

Kids memory game.

You choose 7-10 items and they are shuffled and turned over. You have to say which item should be there, but is missing. If you guess correctly, you get a point. After everyone has dealt 2x, the game ends.
