This fast playing game is all about being the first to get three of the golden banana coins and become the new king of the Banana Bandits Gang. The game will be played out on a 3D tower that you construct in the box, and has you doing simple actions like move, attack, grab coins, or draw cards. Fighting is easy and is done with a roll of the dice, with the dice being modified by cards allowing for rerolls and the like. Manage to grab two coins of different colors you can convert them into a golden banana coin, putting you one step closer to winning. Once someone hits that mark of 3 coins the game is over, and they are crowned the new king. The game looks good on the table with an impressive 3D tower and gorilla tokens that hang off the tower.
