Awesome press-your-luck filler. Simple mechanics but has some dynamic excitement. The Cheeky Monkey rule feels kind of like a double down, and the animal herd rule offers an opportunity to manage your luck. The poker chip pieces offer a satisfying tactile experience. I think this game can fill a similar niche for me as For Sale does.

The perfect push-your-luck game. Simple rules, colorful art, and chips that make a most satisfying click when you slap them down. Excellent with adults and kids alike.

A great "push-your-luck" game. I love drawing the tiles from the bag, but how is it possible to draw two elephants in the beginning of the game, when there are only 3 of them, and so many other tiles in the bag!!Brings a lot of frustration and excitement!

Outstanding distillation of the push-your-luck genre. Actually plays like a lighter Incan Gold, which I would have previously thought impossible. Better than IG, too. Among the best push-your-luck games with Ra and Can't Stop. I think I will be playing this forever!

Who am I kidding? This is basically a perfect game. It is always fun. Every time. So mindless and simple and so brilliant in the way the math works. Fuckin' Reiner is an absolute master.

I loved it! My favorite animal was the monkey and the elephant. Just because they were my favorite colors. I loved that I beat my Mommy! The decisions were very hard because I had to choose if I had to not pull out a tile or pull out a tile.

An amazingly fun filler game. It is particularly well suited to situations when there are several people standing around waiting for another game or two to finish. It's very easy to just jump in in the middle & have fun playing.

Another Perfect Game. It can be played anywhere, even non-gaming environments. Sure, it's a learning game for children but who doesn't need to be brushed up on where dingoes and warthogs originate? The game's simple, yet brilliant mechanic of push-your-luck meets set collection is nothing short of brilliant and is always great fun in a group, no matter how large, no matter the ages. Fantastic game and I always take it with me.

**[Español]** Siempre quiero jugarlo. El juego que toda la vida llevo esperando; el perfecto Push your luck Game. Me recuerda al Dalmuti unido al porker; lo de poker viene por lo de “pedir” fichas.
Obligado jugar con las reglas de Cheeky Monkey, caravana y puntuación “compleja”.

He cambiado de idea y ahora el perfecto Push Your Luck creo que es el Keltis, le bajo la nota a 8,8.

Probably the best game out there that will be enjoyed equally by young children and adults. Definitely not a strategic game, but an excellent tactical filler. Gobs of luck, but Luck will, nevertheless, reward the player who knows best when to stop and when to press on.

Silly game, but makes for a very fun experience if people are willing to cheer and pester eachother.

May be a good game to have to play with Tina's family and/or mine.

Have my own copy and it's a great game for a larger group.

Over thirty plays, with between two and seven players. A great light game for both kids and adults. The bonus points are significant, so remembering what chips you've already taken will inform your decisions as to whether or not to continue drawing chips from the bag; for example, if you've collected a few kangaroos and your opponents are showing kangaroos on the tops of their stacks, you might want to risk drawing more chips to see if you can turn up another kangaroo and get a windfall. Remembering what is in your stack will also help you decide whether or not to use the cheeky monkey's special ability to exchange tiles. The rule that you can bury your chips at the bottom if they're all of one type also adds a hair more strategy; this allows players to stop immediately after a big windfall instead of being forced to keep going to cover their booty with a different type of chip. It also makes the end game a lot less chaotic.

All in all, this is a fun and clever game. It might be too light for gamers, but it's perfect for families who want something that's simple enough for the kids to be involved but which still has a little something to think about.

This rating is from playing with my family of 4. kids and adults mixed. We have a great time playing this game. It plays quickly and the continuous stealing of others tiles is a lot of fun. It is often played at least twice in one sitting.

After 5+ Plays: One of my favorite fillers, though I have trouble convincing others of its brilliance. The intersection of set collection and push-your-luck works really well, because there is more to think about than just how many tiles to stop at.

Generally I love push-your-luck games, and this one is the best of them imo. To see your friends draw two elephants out of the bag is great fun, and it makes me laugh every time. The monkey is a nice twist to the game, as you have the chance to swap it with any other player's top tile.
