Sunday morning started with a breakfast burrito and I wandered into the tourney room and got roped into the Monkey Madness tourney. I didn't win, but Robert (who was with me) made the final and failed.

My take: this might be less of a game than LCR. I'm just saying.

German edition, at the same GW on Meridian. A Reiner K. game for the little ones. I didn't need it. Tempted, but no. I resisted. $1.49 I think.

A Geekway classic event that is sure to please. Sunday at 11:30 we will put the prizes on the line and let the bragging begin. Winning is the only way to get your name on the Monkey, and if you don't play, you can't win!

I don't usually go to Salvation Army since I never seem to find anything, but made an exception. Found this Knizia kids game for $1.50. It's missing a drawstring bag, but it had a bonus bead necklace. Oh, and it's in German.

3 to 6 years old is the stated age range but my daughter is now 3 and 4 months and is already too old for this.
So you put your hand in the bag and grab a monkey. If it is your colour you keep it and pass the bag. If it is someone else's colour, you keep taking monkeys out. In terms of colour recognition there are simply 4 colours, so this is way too simple for a 3 year-old.
This is a Reiner Knizia so I was expecting so much more from the 3-6 age range.
I would recommend starting this as soon as a child stops puts things in her mouth, as the monkeys are small. Other than that, you get the thrill of getting her first Knizia, but there are many other better options out there for 3 years old.

I don't particulary like any of the kids games (even though I bought games that I could at least stand) and Monkey madness is one of them. But it got literally hundreds of plays. How can I get rid of i? Hopefully I will get grandkids in 25 years or so...

This is a kids' game and one of Dr Knizia's finest.

Players pull a monkey out of a bag. If it is another player's colour, you place it on their score board and pull out another monkey; if it is your own colour, you place it on your score board and pass the bag to the next player. The player whose board is completed first wins.

A very simple game, but 3 - 4 year olds love it!

and FINALLY, there was this one, which was complete with extra bits! In addition to 2 extra monkeys there is a random D6 (speckled yellow on orange with shoeprints on 2 sides, an axe on 1 side, two axes on 1 side, maybe a bow on the other, and not sure what on the other) and a coin from Puerta Rico Costa Rica (100 colones dated 2007 ~ worth about $.20).

Spent the rest of my free time yesterday doing inventory on all the games and riding on a fluffy cloud of euphoria as my good fortune.

$.99 @ GW

This one is actually missing the instructions. I have sent a inquiry to Ravensburger, but doubt they will respond since all my other inquiries have fallen on deaf ears. Meanwhile someone wrote up a description of the rules in the forum that I have cut and paste into a Word document and printed out.

PS. Just noticed that this is a Reiner Knizia!

Apparently in this area parents are cleaning out their toddler's rooms, not their college kids' rooms. So I found this for $1.50 at Savers, missing one player board. But, I couldn't resist for Knizia AND Ravensburger.

20p for a Knizia game … complete
(actually, more than complete - there were 7 monkeys of each colour)

Now, if only it had been a game involving any skill at all

I've been on this site for 10 years now, and I'm far from sick of games, but I think I am, to some degree, sick of learning too many new games. I'm also tired of playing 4+ hr multiplayer games, but I'll still happily play really long games 2 player.

You know you can't resist, you know you want your name on that monkey! It takes a person with an iron will and strong manual dexterity to be a true champion. Do you have what it takes? Can you last until the end?

This year the tournament will take place at 11am Sunday morning and all you need to do is be there for a shot at the title!

Disclaimer - There may be anti-doping testing after some discrepancies last year, the Monkey Madness Tournament Commission has yet to make a ruling. More to follow...

Mine comes from one of video game history's funniest characters ever: Murray, the talking skull from the Monkey Island series (particularly The Curse of Monkey Island).

Quote:
Murray: I am a powerful demonic force! I am the harbinger of your doom! And the forces of darkness will applaud me as I STRIDE through the gates of hell carrying your head on a pike!
Guybrush Threepwood: 'Stride?'
Murray: All right then, 'ROLL! ROLL through the gates of hell.' Must you take the fun out of everything?
Guybrush Threepwood: You're about as fearsome as a doorstop.
Murray: Is it a really EVIL-looking doorstop?
Guybrush Threepwood: [sighs] Never mind.

I sent a copy of this I had thrifted off to a nephew for Christmas, kind of regretting sending it away. A couple of days later, I found that I had thrifted another copy (too many games!), so was able to have one around after all!

I introduced this to my almost 3 year old daughter, and it's the first game that she's been able to concentrate on and follow the rules. It's a very simple game (pick the monkeys out of the bag, put them on the right colored board, share with your neighbors), and she loves it - apparently, my 4 year old nephew does too.

She's been wanting to participate in our games more and more, mostly just playing with the pieces, so it's nice to have a game she can consider her own & really play. We're on the road!

Recently purchased a German language edition of this, not that language is an issue with this game. Perfect for the 1 1/2 year old. Realizes the monkeys get placed on the circles, just hasn't realized the correct colors yet. Also likes to draw too many monkeys out of the bag at once.

Never meant to start him off on boardgames this early. His older brother first started on Go Away Monster at age 2 yrs 11 months. Hard to keep him away though when he sees his brother playing.

At first I saw the yellow box and thought HABA but then I saw the Ravensburger logo. Ooh, Knizia. I checked the rules and realized there is nothing to this game, but my two year old needs practice with taking turns so I think this well be good for him.
