Version 0.9.8:
- As well as a new Game Modifiers screen and five new medals, GRADUATEs can now "pass" the Golden Mallet to other GRADUATEs! There are bound to be some nasty bugs in the game, so if you spot one please send me a message.

Graduates and Gorillas: the game is a strategic board game, featuring the S5 Graduate and the S3 Gorilla Suit Guy from LEGO's Collectible Minifigure series. It was submitted to LEGO CUUSOO with the aim of making it an official LEGO set.

In this demo of the game you control the GRADUATEs, whose task it is to reach Bristowe on top of the balcony. Bristowe has an endless army of GORILLAs at his disposal to try and capture the GRADUATEs. Which side will come out on top?

If you like the game, please give feedback as well as suggestions for game/rule changes, as this is a continuous work in progress. More importantly, please support the Graduates and Gorillas: the game project on LEGO CUUSOO.

Miss a turn happens far too often.

I guess I would have enjoyed this more if I was better at it. What really weighed this game down was how it was too easy to spawn gorillas. I was hoping that you would able to kill them as they could kill you. It seems like it would only be fair, seeing as how there are a lot more gorillas than you, or at least there can be. It was nice to see those Lego pieces. Dang, it's been forever since I've played with those.

It seems like there should be more Lego games on this website. At least the sounds were really nice. The closest I was able to get to was the first black spot where a gorilla appeared. It's quite innovative for what it is. I'm just eager to beat it, because it seems like something I can do!

i didnt even get to move once before 4 gorillas had spawned....seems a bit lopsided


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Hmm, I've never written a review before, but I'll get right to it. I felt that Bristowe's turns were kinda unnecessary, since the gorillas can spawn and move on anyone's turn. Perhaps this is part of the challenge of the game, but I felt it gave the gorillas a really big advantage. I didn't win until my 11th try, and only then because I played with 1 character, ignored the hammer, and got very lucky. Overall I'd say this game was charming but frustrating.
I appreciate the instructions - they were very clear, friendly, and easy to follow. However, even though there was an option for them during play, I could only get the instructions to appear from the main menu.
I'd like to see this game continue to develop. If there was an option for playing online against others; one player controlling the gorillas and the other the graduates (or even 1 player per graduate), I think the game might be closer to its full potential.
Overall, great work and good luck!
