The boss of the Banana bandits is selecting one member of the crew as his successor. Whoever can first collect three golden banana coins will be the next leader of Banana bandits, and you obtain the golden banana coin by gathering gorilla coins that are held by the other gorillas. Catch these other gorilla’s coins to claim victory!
Banana Bandits is an exciting family game with a eye-catching 3D building. Each turn, the active player has three action points, and the player can choose any of these actions to execute:
Move the gorilla up, down, left or right 1-3 spaces.
Fight with an adjacent opponent by rolling the dice.
Draw a card, but only if you’re on the first floor.
Collect all the coins in the room.
When a player collects enough gorilla coins, they can convert two different colors of gorilla coins to one golden banana coin.
Every player gets to choose a party leader character to represent them throughout the game. Each party leader card has a class and a skill that gives you an edge over your opponents. Whether you enjoy fighters, bards, wizards, or thieves, you’ll find a party leader that’s right for your play style – but choose wisely, because you only get one party leader for the whole game!
Your heroes are brave adventurers, ready to attack monsters and go head to head with your foes! The game includes over 40 unique heroes. Each hero card has a class and an effect, and each hero’s effect has a roll requirement. In order to use a hero’s effect, you must roll two dice and score equal to or higher than that effect’s roll requirement. Heroes take advantage of items, magic and modifiers to increase their chances of making their dice rolls.
In order to slay that monster, you must roll two dice and score equal to or higher than that monster’s roll requirement. Be warned: Each monster has a roll range in which they’ll fight back, and if you score within that range, your party might be in grave danger…
Don’t like what your opponent just played? Throw down a challenge! Challenge cards can be played instantly to try to stop another player from playing a hero, item, or magic card. Playing a challenge card initiates a 1V1 challenge in which you and another player both have to roll the dice. If they win the challenge, they still get to play their card, but if you win the challenge, you get to send their card directly to the discard pile!
