Product Description

You are a monkey in the jungle when one day a wayward carnival makes a stop. You and your fellow monkeys jump in the bumper cars and away you go. You have no idea why there is fruit all over the arena floor, but you aim to grab as much of it for yourself as possible.

Spin Monkeys has each player starting on a junction at the edge of the board with a hand of 5 cards. The cards have 8 possible degrees of rotation from 45 to a full 360 degrees. On each turn players choose a card, rotate their monkey clockwise to the degree, then move one junction per played card in front of them. On the first turn you only go one junction, but as the game goes you can travel more junctions as you play more cards, picking up all the fruit you glide over, apples, oranges and bananas, leaving peels. Some cards have text that let you do special actions, like taking more fruit, or rotating during your movement. As you go faster, traveling more junctions per turn, it becomes harder to avoid running into the sides of the board or other monkeys. When you bump into the side of the board you lose cards, slowing you down. If you crash into another monkey you get to spin them, and steal a piece of fruit. After you play your hand, you get 5 new cards to direct your monkey with. Game goes until only one kind of fruit is left on the board. Most points in fruit wins!

During the afternoon of Family Day (back in February), we decided to try out a new game we had received. Spin Monkeys is very different than the conventional games you will find in toy stores. This game is available in specialty game stores through Canada and the US. The difference with this game is that you have to be strategic with the angles you want to use.

The game come with 8 monkeys, a bunch of fruity tokens, and 139 movement cards. So when you play this game you never know how it will finish. The basic instructions of the game are fairly simply but the rules attached to the consequences of the travels across the board can be overwhelming at times. Here's what could happen when you play, you might slip on a banana peel which will rotate your monkey and sent him toward a different direction or you can bump into another monkey and create a ripple effect with that monkey send elsewhere on the board. Same goes when you run into the edges of the arena. And at times, a chain reaction will happened where multiple monkeys bump into each other...

Each player get five cards to begin with. You have to play all these cards before getting more cards. When collecting fruits on the way, you need to change the banana for a banana peel. Before another player can play, you have to resolve any event happening like banana peels, collisions, and edges. The movement cards will indicate the angle you need to adjust before travelling through the board.

The game is geared for 13+ but even if my two oldest sons were not quite in age (almost 9 and 11) when we played, we had some fun and loved to discover this game. It is a tricky at first but once you understand ALL the rules, you can have a blast with your family and friends.

Verified Purchase
This is a fun game that only takes 30-40 minutes to play. The spin mechanic is easy to use, especially with the degrees printed on the monkeys, so even our non-gamer friends could easily understand what to do. With your monkey generally getting faster and faster every turn, this game really sped up (literally). There is enough strategy that if you want to plan ahead you can, but enough luck that you can do just fine playing each turn as they develop.

We very much enjoyed this game!
