Monkey Poker is a new card game designed for ages 8 and up. It was originated and developed by Kansas entrepreneur Wes Smith.
"The inspiration came," says Smith, "from putting down the video games and playing Texas Hold‘em with my own 3 monkeys (kids) and the realization that poker doesn’t have to be confined to smoky bar rooms and casinos. It can also be enjoyed at the kitchen table, or anywhere a family can gather."
The game also has quick setup and takedown so that you can have more fun than a barrel of monkeys playing Monkey Poker.
"We wanted a game that was high energy, fun and easy," says Smith.
Monkey Poker is interactive fun for all players, card sharks and beginners alike. However, Monkey Poker is a lot more than just a deck of ordinary playing cards. For example, the included Go Bananas cards ™ incorporate random events and player changes inspired by everyday kids games.
So set some time aside to see who can climb their way to the top, become the Chi(m)p leader and give your family the experience of Monkey Poker.
As Smith himself says, "May you always have monkeys in your pocket and no cheetahs at the table!"
Wes and Three Monkey Games will be at many special events throughout the Midwest promoting the Monkey Poker Texas Hold'em card game, and MonkeyWinks, a great indoor game idea for children and kids of all ages. Contact us for more information!
