About

 The bananas are almost gone, this is no time to monkey around!

Only a few banana trees are left. Harvest as many bananas as possible, before it's too late! Recruit an army of Bigs and Followers, build wacky contraptions, and scheme wild strategies to protect your monkeys and especially your bananas.

Monkey Bash is a fast paced, tactical battle card game for 2-4 players with tons of monkey shenanigans. Every card does something: from simple effects, to game turning if played right. Card position and movement matters as much as the cards themselves. Strategy and wits will play a big role in your victory, but you can still pull off even the most harebrained schemes with a bit of luck (or enough cheater monkeys).

The core elements of Monkey Bash are the Bigs and Followers, as well as tactical movement through the four jungle zones. Each Big has its specialty and each Follower helps its Big through thick and thin.

The objective for each player is to harvest 20 bananas first. You'll need to balance boldness and caution to secure the banana trees for your troop, while not abandoning your base.

You begin with a Breeder in your Base to help raise an army. You can then recruit the other Bigs and send Followers to hang on to them anywhere they go.

The Bigs can move through your jungle Territory and out into the Wilds where anything can happen. You might want to launch an attack against enemy troops or sneak through to the banana trees in the middle.

Any Big can harvest the bananas, but the Harvester monkey does it best, along with the Grabber monkeys. But watch out or the enemy Fighter monkey might do what he does best.

Nowhere is truly safe, even in your own Territory. You move into a zone to attack and decide who will rule. Every monkey in the troop contributes to the fight.

Each monkey gets to roll a die. Each hit knocks off an enemy follower and might route the Big, too.

You might want to try and flee from the threat. Be warned: not all Followers will make it out.

What can engineers do? What they do best! Engineers and their followers gather resources and discover blueprints for all manner of contraptions to fortify your base and the bananas therein.

We aim to pack as much into this game as possible for your dollar with each reached goal. Specifics of each stretch goal will be revealed the closer we get to them.

We have talked to dozens of production companies to bring you the right quality for the best price. This goes for both the exclusive dice and the game itself. Production time may vary but should be no more than two months. Then rewards will be fulfilled as quickly as possible.

Our goal is to have everyone's games and dice shipped and received no later than October 31st, barring any hiccups in production or shipment.

Risks and challenges

There is very little risk with this project. The artwork is finished (with the exception of any stretch goals). We are remastering the cards to ensure professional quality, while maintaining the stylistic appeal. The game play is ready and has been play tested by 24+ people ages 8-30.

As with any project involving third party manufacturing, there may be some variability in production time as well as end product results. We are committed to giving you as much quality for your dollar as possible and to process orders for shipment as efficiently as possible, because we literally couldn't do this with out you!

Thank you for your support and taking a look at what we hope to offer!
