Your goal in Monkey Duel is to accumulate points by leaping one's monkeys from bamboo stalk to bamboo stalk across the board.
Monkeys that reach the opponent's side of the board score points !
Knocking opposing monkeys off the board also scores points !
Players take turns rolling and exchanging dice in order to bring new monkeys onto the board, move their monkeys, or throw coconuts at opposing monkeys.
Monkeys move in one of two ways, either climbing directly up their current bamboo stalk or leaping to the next one while dropping down one or more spaces in the process.
Monkey Duel is a game of positioning and timing. Monkeys positioned higher up the bamboo stalks hold an offensive advantage, but every move requires giving up some altitude. Monkeys can also keep one another safe, so deciding when to stick together and when to make an individual break for it is key to victory.

Present day, on an isolated island in the Pacific Ocean.
"The expedition is about to land on the shore. The scouts we’ve sent came back wounded, but have confirmed the information we had: not all dinosaurs have disappeared! On this island, a female velociraptor lives with her babies. So far we’ve seen five of them, but there might be more. Our mission: to capture the children, alive, or neutralize the mother, who is fast and powerful. It will be an epic face-to-face struggle, but every true scientist would love to take my seat. Let the hunt begin!"
- Professor Lindenbrock, paleontologist.

A palace can quickly become a maze for an escaping princess, where each mirror can either reveal a way out, or conceal a trap!
It is up to her to use them at her advantage, before her guardians turn them into spying devices!
Roberto Fraga created this new game, where each player moves their princess across the board, hiding her progression, while placing allies and mirrors to uncover your opponent’s princess.
Escaping the palace and running off with your sweetheart will require both wits and stealth!
