The Downloadable file includes Instructions.
Monkey: The goose is represented by the monkey. His boxes are: 2, 5, 9, 12, 17, 22, 25, 28 and 33. A player can (only) jump from goose to goose if he/she recognizes what number corresponds to the box. Otherwise it will remain in it as in any other box without advancing.
Kite: Boxes 7 and 20. If a player falls in box 7 he/she jumps to box 20.
Hat: If you fall in a box with a hat, you move back 3 boxes.
Waterfall: Box 14. You are soaked, you lose a turn.
Map: Box 27. You are lost, you can not move from there for three turns unless another player falls and guides you out. If a player saves another when falling in the box, he/she will not be lost, continues to play as normal.
Binoculars: You see your goal, the bananas. You advance to the end!
