Cocktails and voodoo powers mingle in a boardgame about clique-building, trend setting,
and earning magical monkey points.

Welcome to the Party

It’s 1962. JFK’s New Frontier is on the horizon and you’re living La Dolce Vita. You’ve partied with the Bunnies at Hef’s mansion in Chicago. You’ve heard Brubeck play the Black Hawk in Frisco. And you’ve had drinks after-hours with Frank, Dean, and Sammy in Vegas. But your jet-setting ways won’t keep you in one place very long. How are you going to get in with this all-new In-Crowd? Fortunately, you’ve got an edge and it’s that “Voodoo that you do so well.” Papa Legba has interceded on your behalf and the Loa are listening. Sip your cocktail, warm up your power skulls, and get ready to score some magical monkey points at the Swinging Jivecat Voodoo Lounge! 

Time To Mingle

You and your fellow voodoo spirits have traveled back in time to poke a little fun at the hepcats of the 1950's cocktail culture. Power your mystical influences with voodoo skulls to link these lounge-goers into social cliques that give you access to the coolest party-people that all the hipsters want to be near. Score magical monkey points to hang on your martini glass by adding jivecat contacts to your clique, then claim trend cards through timely and skillful manipulation of your lounge contacts. Be the player with the most monkeys at the end and you’ll be crowned King of the Swinging Jivecat Voodoo Lounge.
