Board Game Rank: Not Ranked


Bananas is a childrens game for 2 to 4 players.
One player plays George the Gorilla and the other/others play the role of chimps.
The goal of this game is to be the first player that manages to collect 9 delicious bananas!!

The younger player from those playing the chimps starts first.Then it is Georges turn to play followed by the turn of another chimp.
Turns are alternated like that until one of the two player groups have 9 bananas!!

Chimps roll the die and move.If they land on an empty space they must place a banana at that space from the central warehouse.BUT if there is a banana at the space they land they can pick it up and put it on their private stash!!
If a chimp lands on a space where anothe chimp stand he gets another turn!!
Chimps can also rescue their fellow chimps that a hiding in a tree!If he passes over or land in a space where a chimp is hiding on a tree the chimp on the tree can climb back down safely.
Finally if a chimp lands on the space that George occupies he gives him a slap stunning him for a turn.
On the other hand George has the ability to pick up bananas from every space he land and has one but he is not obliged to put some on an empty space.
If George lands or passes a space that is occupied by a chimpanzee he chases him up the tree.If all the chimps are in the trees then in order to come down they must soothe him by giving him a banana each from their personal stack and not the warehouse unless they have none.If George is on the space when the Chimp comes down from the tree, George gets another turn.
