Parcel Monkeyz is a four-person board game based on a parcel delivery service with a fun monkey twist to appeal to the whole family.

Game highlights:
- Experience the twists and turns of parcel delivery.
- Fun for all ages.
- Use re-delivery cards to decide your next move.
- Answer questions to deliver extra parcels and win!

We were tasked with designing a board game that revolves around a service. Upon studying parcel delivery, I decided to develop a game that captures the thrill and unpredictability of this service. The game's theme is relatable and can be enjoyed by all ages, making it an excellent choice for spending quality time with family.

My interest in parcel delivery stemmed from my mother working for a delivery company. I started my research by speaking to my mother about her work, where I heard a running joke comparing the delivery drivers to ‘parcel monkeys'. I then watched informational videos to investigate the process further. After the observations, I had the information and ideas I needed to create a game combining all aspects of parcel delivery in a fun way that entertains families.

Parcel Monkeyz is a game that simulates parcel delivery and provides entertainment to players. It includes various components such as redelivery cards and parcel cards, engaging players in a fun environment. Families may be concerned about the complexity for children, but it is easy to understand due to its similarity to the real thing.
