Coconuts is a dexterity game based on the “Monkey King” character from Chinese mythology.

In the game, players launch coconuts toward a field of cups in the middle of the playing area. Land in a cup, and you get to stack it on your player board; land in a cup on someone else’s board, and you get to move it to yours. By playing special “Monkey King Magic” cards, you can force opponents to shoot blind, take long shots, or otherwise bollix their efforts to cup a coconut. Whoever first completes a pyramid of six cups on his payer board wins!

Taco! Cat! Goat! Cheese! Pizza! is as unique as its name. It’s a power-packed quick and simple punk party game.

This is a high octane rowdy cousin to Slap Jack and Irish Snap, and it’s filled to the brim with hand slapping mayhem!

Each player places a card from their hand (like snap and dobble) face up in a community pile while saying taco/cat/goat/cheese/pizza in player sequence – when the card matches the mantra – boom – everyone slaps their hand on the deck – the last one picks up the cards – the winner is the player to lose all their cards first.
