Objective of OranguTwang
The objective of OranguTwang is to place fruit and animals on the Orangutan without knocking it off the string.
- Attach the two base pieces together.
- Insert one of the trees into each end of the base. Attack a top to each of the trees.
- Pull up on the Toucan Lever until you hear a clicking noise. You should hold the Toucan up for at least a second.
- Place the Orangutan on the string so it hangs from its top hand.
- Add all of the remaining game pieces to the dishes in the base.
- Place the die in the playing area where everyone can reach it.
- The player who can say “banana” five times first without messing up gets to go first. Otherwise you can let the youngest player go first.
You will begin your turn rolling the die. What you roll on the die determines what type of item you will play on your turn. For example if you roll a banana bunch, you will take one of the banana bunches.
If you roll the star, you will lose your turn. This is a good thing since you can’t lose the game on your turn.
Should you roll an item but all of the corresponding items have already been played, you will roll the die again.
After you have determined what item you need to add on your turn, you will attach the item to the Orangutan. You can hang it off the Orangutan in whatever way you want. It must completely hang off the Orangutan though. It cannot touch the string/vine. When you place an item you want to keep the Orangutan balanced so it doesn’t fall off the string.
After you place your item, play passes to the player on your left. They will roll the die and place a piece.
OranguTwang ends when the Orangutan falls/jumps off the string/vine. The last player to successfully place a piece and the Orangutan stays on the string, wins the game.
If you would like to play another game, follow the setup instructions to reset the game.
When you are done playing the game disassemble the game and return it and all of the game pieces to the box. To remove the trees from the base you should twist them so they come out of the base.
