I know this game is intended for young children, so many will frown upon this review, BUT there are plenty of games out there that are just as fun for young children as is for adults. The only two children that are halfway interested in playing this game are my 4 and 6 yr olds. Everyone else (8 and up) runs when this one comes off the shelf. It's ALL luck... absolutely no strategy at all. No educational value either other than ordering numbers from 1-6. "Rat a Tat Cat" is an example of a card game (also by Gamewright)that my whole family enjoys playing. It combines luck with strategy, memory, and the educational value of learning how to add 4 numbers together (my 4 yr old has learned how to do this). I highly recommend "Rat a Tat Cat"

If you are looking for an easy, no thinking game, for very young children (6 and under), then "Too Many Monkeys" may be a game you'd be interested in.

*update... Also you should check out "Frog Juice" by Gamewright. This is another game that all my kids (ages 4-21) enjoy playing. We bought two decks and play both decks with 8 people playing.

*Another recommendation is "Sleeping Queens" by Gamewright.

We got a small version of this game as a Sonic Kid's Meal toy. We played that so much I thought it would be good to buy the full version. After not finding it at any stores (walmart, target, toys r us) I bought it online and the full version is SO MUCH BETTER! My 4 year old loves this game, it takes about 15 per game so we play a few times before bedtime. I would say if your child knows how to count to 6 they would LOVE this game. There is not too much stradegy in the gameplay, the basic rules are that you lay 6 cards face down in front of each player. You draw a card and whatever number monkey you draw you start at 1 end of your facedown cards count to the numbered card and replace the card you drew with the facedown card. When you have the facedown card in your hand if you have another numbered monkey you do the same with that number. And THATS IT! It's not too difficult and there are other special cards (skip, turn is over, wild, draw from discard pile) but none of them are too crazy where the gameplay is changed drastically. I recommend this game to all kids who can count to 6...lol.

Every house should have this game. It keeps the interest for all, from age 4 to 104. It's fast, quick, and fun. I can't remember the age recommendations but any child than can put 6 cards in counting order can play this game. Don't let the simplicity of counting 1 - 6 throw you off.....it's GREAT!

We love Gamewright and have a nice collection of their card games. Unfortunately, Too Many Monkeys missed the mark for my 6-year-old.

The game is simple. You must be the first to have an ordered row of monkeys (numbered 1-6) face up in front of you. Once this happens, the round is over and you start a new round dealing the winner one less card. The object is to be the first player with only one card in front of you and then you have to draw the card with one monkey to win. Explaining this game is more complicated than the actual game play.

Too Many Monkeys is mainly luck-based. Your turn ends when you can't make any more moves. A player will draw a card that kicks of a fast-paced card flipping chain of events. For each numbered monkey you flip over, you can place it in the appropriate spot on the "card line" in front of you. You can end up swapping several cards in a row...and it is possible to win a round on the very first turn if you've had a lucky deal.

The game doesn't capture the attention of my 6-year-old. We may play the game for one round, but beyond that the repetition and short rounds get boring. I feel like my 6-year-old would have enjoyed this more when she was 4. Personally, I like the game and the illustrations are adorable.

This is a best new card game we've played in a while. The game is a hit with our 5 and 8 year old kids, plus my husband and I love it too. The game is simple and requires no reading or major strategy. It's just fun! There are some great YouTube videos showing how the game works if you get confused.

This is a great a game for young and old. We had to buy 2 decks and put them together, ten of us were playing from 3 years old to 70 years old. Easy for young ones to quickly understand (if you can count to 6 you have it made). There is stratedgy that is quickly picked up and fun for everyone.

So much fun! I bought this game for my students and they love it. It's easy enough for younger kids, but fun for older kids too because they can strategize. The rules are simple to learn and it's easy to put your own variations into the game to make it go longer or shorter. My only complaint is that a couple of the "special" animal cards serve exactly the same purpose. It would have been neat if they had come up with different meanings for the Giraffe and Elephant rather than it just being 'lose a turn'. But still, a cute and clever game that I'm sure will see lots of wear and tear over the years!

My son received this for his 6th birthday and it was too easy and kinda boring for him, however, my 4 year old daughter LOVED this game! It's been great for her! She's 5 now and still wants to play it regularly!
