Thread: Barrel Of Monkeys

  1. Default Barrel Of Monkeys

    An ultra-simple classic game involving about 50 plastic monkeys and a barrel. The little plastic monkeys had long curved arms so tht they would link together at the elbows to make a chain.I think the idea of the game was actually something to do with linking 12 of them together without them falling apart.But hey who cares! If you've got a Barrel of Monkeys you can play what you like with them!

    This reminded me of when I was a child and being told I was more trouble than a barrel full of monkies (or a barrow load sometimes !!)

    Wonder which came first - the saying or the game !!

    I think with most of these sayings the games came later. BTW I bought my daughter a set a while back and only got 12 monkeys in total. Is it true that it used to come with a lot more than that or is it just wishful thinking?

    Yep ! That's what I thought
    According to this picture advertising the game Steve, it looks like there are only about a dozen ! Seems the aim of the game is to connect 12, so I suppose you are expected to join up the lot !!
