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.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

I am sure alot of work went into this...

and it shows.

But a game purely based on luck frankly isn't my taste.

My first game I had ONE turn and missed all the others, while the gorillas killed me easily.

So yeah.... 4 stars for effort, even though I dislike the game.

I thought this game was fun. It is simple and strategic. I really enjoyed it and I think it's a game that is suitable for a wide age-range.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Liked it! I would've liked to have the addition of music (mutable, of course :D), and the ability to roll the die ourselves! I became bored with the game mainly because I spend half of it just watching the die roll. Just having a simple button to click would've made me feel more involved!

Otherwise, the graphics were cute, and I liked the originality!


Rated 2 / 5 stars

Interesting setup, like the chess-like game play. seems a little too slow paced. overall good job.
