Several colored sticks are skewered through the tree trunk to keep the monkeys from dropping. Players roll a die and must remove a stick of the same color rolled. Be careful when choosing a stick. You must keep each monkey that drops during your turn. The player with the fewest monkeys when they’ve all dropped is the winner.

Try to get your partner to say as many words from a particular category written on the cards within the thirty second time limit, you may only pass once. Move your team pawn forward a number of spaces on the board equal to the number of words you got correct. If you land on an Orange or Red space, spin the spinner for a chance to move yourself 2 or 3 spaces forward, or move an opponent piece 2 or 3 spaces back. If you land on a spade space, try to get you team mate to say the word on the card before any other team can say it. Whoever answers correctly gets a turn immediately.
Categories include Person, World, Object, Action, Nature and Random. First team to make it around the board and successfully answer a spade category (chosen from any of the above) wins the game.
