“Fast and furious” is oftentimes used to describe activities that require quick reflexes and an insanely focused presence of mind. Blink and you’ll fall behind or, worse yet, crash and burn. It’s this mayhem that gives many a rush, as the thrill of winning far outweighs their fears of failure. In this game, failure won’t cost you an arm or a leg, but you’ll most likely beat yourself up for mentally not being fast enough to play a single card to the table.
The Mountain of the Monkey King is in chaos. Being a wise demigod, the Monkey King decides that the best way to restore order is to focus the attention of his monkey subjects. He ponders for a moment and then decides that a contest is in order. All the petty jealousies and anger will be set aside as his subjects attempt to win their demigod’s favor by throwing coconuts! To the victor, a great reward is promised! The title of “Ruler of the Mountain”!
It happens to everyone when you least expect it. Something is said out-of-place, a reaction is given, and a very long and painful silence ensues. Ah, awkward moments, how I loath thee. But these impossibly long stretches of discomfort need not end in tears! If you have your wits about you, you can emerge from a very awkward situation glittering with class! This game gives you a chance to practice slashing the most awkward of moments in twain!
As you swim through the ocean to the rescue ship, your heart is full of dread as you see the shark fins circling closer and closer. Fear pushes you as you know an attack could come at any moment. Suddenly, a shark charges and you can see its teeth below the waves! Seconds before the shark reaches you, a dolphin smashes into it! The dolphin saved you this time, but it’s best not to rely on luck or tempt fate. SWIM!
You can hear the splashing of water and the screams of your fellow castaways as you swim like mad to the rescue boat. You have already been bitten by one of the sharks, but your will to survive and fear drives you on. Ahead of you is the ship and its crew who shout words of encouragement. You pause a moment to catch your breath and scream in terror as you see a giant squid come to the surface. Becoming a pirate was a poor life choice…
You have been trapped on the small island surrounded by endless ocean for what feels like years. You and the other shipwrecked crew are surviving, but every day is a struggle. Then, on the horizon, a ship is spotted! You light your signal fires and the boat approaches! Now all you have to do is swim to the ship, but the water is full of man-eating sharks! Steeling your nerves, you plunge into the surf in a desperate attempt to survive.
Pirates are brave, laugh at danger, and above all else, follow instructions no matter how insane they sound. The Captain has gathered you on deck. In a loud voice, he explains that he has one too many pirate crew members and is looking to downsize. And by “downsize”, he means toss those pirate he doesn’t think too highly of into the ocean. Time to test your pirate skills and luck!
