The Mattell Greedy Gator game challenges players to move their pieces from one side of a bridge to the other safely while circumventing dangers and obstacles.There are two animal factions that players can choose from. The toucans and the monkeys are trying to cross the bridge to take home their fruit, but in opposite directions. With a hungry alligator waiting below, they need to be careful and get across without getting knocked off to become a tasty meal for the gators. It's light strategy mixed with suspense and unpredictable destruction as players slide the alligator roller at the rotating planks of the bridge in an attempt to knock opponents off and determine how many spaces they can move. The trick is to figure out how many spots to advance each of the movers. The first team across the bridge wins. This two-player board game moves at a rapid pace, so a full game only takes about 10 minutes.
It can be played by two children against each other or between kids and parents. This toucan and monkey board game is recommended for ages five and older.
