    Chinese and English game based on the Chinese national epic novel Journey to the West.

    Players move their monk, monkey, pigsy and Shaseng pieces from Chang An to Tianzhu (the ancient Chinese name for India) with rules similar to those of Pachisi. Play is made more interesting by inclusion of special powers for each type of piece which can affect each other type in special ways as well as cloud paths which a player may attempt to use to evade his enemies. There are also variant rules to change the victory conditions or play of the game.

    Pieces are plastic with colored stickers with the board made from laminated paper.
