Love my retro DK boardgame! Play is rather basic, as expected.

This is a nice game. Components are good looking and nicely functioning in this game. There are a lot of things moving in this game but an adult can take care of these and the kids can have a lot fun.

One of the games that got me into this hobby. Found it at a flea market. A great adaptation of a video game, very clever.

I'm glad to have picked this up at the thrift store. It's a fun little game, that brings back the memory of many a days in the arcade. Feeding quarter, after quarter into the machine.

Gameplay is pretty quick and a lot of fun for what it is. It also has a cool gorilla that you can load the barrels into and when you pull his arm he will drop a new barrel each time. This is a good game for kids and adults alike, to play on family night or just for a quick filler of something different and unique.

Very light and almost just a game of learning counting and positioning, but the card draws (whilst random) allow a surprising amount of tactical manoeuvring - if I jump this barrel, it'll hit him and he'll be forced to destroy it, leaving him with no cards and the only way he can get one is by rolling a three...

Not particularly deep or memorable, but I'm surprised that there is any game in this at all considering that it's a licensed tie-in from the early '80s. In that regard, it's worked out fairly well.

I suspect with more than 2 players this would descend into almost complete randomness.

My son's friend picked this up at a car boot sale so we gave it a go and it wasn't half as bad as I expected. Roll & Move but it was quite fun to race to the top while looking for power-up points to gain cards and dodging tumbling barrels and climbing fireballs to score points.

I find donkey Kong to actually be one of the best game conversions translated to boar game ever.
Sure you have a static level but the way the game plays and feels it just hits that donkey Kong spot for me.
And off course lets not forget the cool plastic monkey that actually drops the wooden barrels onto the board .

Lets be honest I didn't buy this game to play it. I had it when I was a kid and I love Donkey Kong. A great addition to the collection.
Update: Played it with my son this past weekend. Its not a great game, but it is fun.What I like about it has a lot going on with the board with all the barrels moving and the flames chasing you. Also the game can be played in minutes to give you a quick fix. Granted it still won't get a lot of play, but I loved bring it out and giving it another try. Unfortunately my Donkey Kong figure was broken, but I'll survive.

Considering it is a board game version of an old arcade game, it is not bad. It just plays a lot slower.
