Goliath Banana Blast
We gave this a test run with our 4 year old Thanksgiving player. We have to say, this was a blast...with requests to play again! It was a late arrival but we're upgrading the award to Platinum. A good way to win over reluctant game players. This one is active enough and the rules are simple enough—with plenty of chances to win as well as lose. First you load the little bananas in the base of the tree and put the monkey in the middle. Players take turns rolling the die and taking one, two or someone else’s bananas. But watch out! You want to be the player with the most bananas so you’ll want to catch the monkey when it flies up! No batteries are needed and there’s no strategy. You just want to be good at catching a monkey mid-air to get an extra two bananas and possibly win the round. Marked for 4 and up for2-5 players. We think early school age kids will like this a bunch.
