Valley of the Ape


Are You Brave Enough to Enter the Valley of the Ape?

Seek out fantastic treasure and capture the giant ape before other explorers beat you to the prize. In this adventure game for kids you create your own jungle terrain, scatter the encounter tiles (with hazards or treasures) across the valley, and send bands of toy soldier figures to seek fame and riches.

These rules provide guidelines for playing the game and suggestions for creating your own customized board and pieces. You’ll also need lots of six-sided dice and a few rulers. Valley of the Ape distills core miniature wargaming concepts of movement and attack to help kids learn the basics while enjoying the game. Each player gets a rules summary card customized to their particular explorers: intrepid British troopers, brave tribal warriors, fanatical dervishes, and a determined big-game hunter and his bodyguards. Encounter tiles provide objectives to explore: maybe they’re valuable treasures to retrieve, but they might also hide deadly jungle hazards! Beware Mungo, the giant ape who lives in the ruins at the valley’s heart...he protects his home and attacks anyone who ventures too close. Capture the giant ape to win the game, but greedy treasure hunters can collect enough riches to win, too!

Bonus Game!

Cowboys in the Canyon ports the Valley of the Ape rules to the Old West using the same rules, revised player cards, and desert encounters!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
