Come with us on a Journey to the West.
Based on the Chinese classic “The Journey to the West” or “Monkey” as it is commonly known, this is a storytelling game set in a mythical China where out of grace Immortals seek Virtue on Earth in an attempt to re-enter Heaven.
It’s simple rules allow for any sort of action that you can imagine, from fast-paced kung-fu to heated debates.
This book contains all that you need to play, except a pack of standard playing cards per player and your imagination.
Here is a preview of the current out of print version, using the introductory chapter.
- Monkey Preview- (pdf, 1mb)
Please note the game is currently undergoing redevelopment into a 2nd Incarnation (which is what I’m calling the 2nd edition 🙂 ) which is due out June 2016. Read the announcement of it on the Monkey Magic blog for more details.
- Monkey the 2nd Incarnation (which is what I’m calling the revised 2nd edition of the game).
