There are eight sets of animals. A chip represents each animal. All the chips are placed in the bag. A player may draw chips until one chooses to stop. The player adds the chips, in any order, to one’s own stack. If a player draws a the same animal twice in the same turn all the chips return to the bag and the player’s turn passes. If a player draws a monkey, one of ten in the game, a player may swap the monkey for the top chip in any player’s stack. The game is over when the last chip is drawn from the bag. Any individual who has the most chips of any animal receives bonus points. The player with the most points wins.
