A long, long time ago, the Monkey King was the ruler of the Mountain of the Monkeys, a joyful and peaceful place. One day he made a great mistake: He offended the Buddha himself! As a punishment he was imprisoned inside the mountain, where he had to stay for 500 years.
While he was away, the Mountain of the Monkeys fell into chaos. The monkeys fought and quarreled with each other and it was not a peaceful place anymore.
Time passed and finally the Monkey King was freed from his prison by a famous monk, to help him on his voyage to the west. Before leaving for the journey, the Monkey King returned to his mountain and found everything In disorder.
He pondered all day: "What can I do to restore peace and Joy to my home?"
Finally, he saw a few coconuts lying In a basket on the wayside and suddenly he had an idea: He gathered the four monkeys who were most fit to rule the Mountain of the Monkeys and told them: "Instead of fighting each other you will play the game of coconuts.
And the one who will win It, will rule in my place!"
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 player board wins!
