Proposal: Colour Changing Monkeys

Self-killed—Clucky

Adminned at 13 Aug 2007 13:16:15 UTC

Add a new rule “Colour” as follows:

Each monkey has a Colour tracked in the GNDT. The default colour for a new monkey is Brown. The list of colours a monkey can be is known as the colour list. When an action makes a monkey to change colour they change to the colour 1 lower on the list than their current colour (If their colour is at the bottom of the list they change to the first colour).

Add a sub-rule of “Colour” “Colour List” as follows:

The following is the list of colours known as the Colour List:

1. Brown
2. Purple
3. Yellow
4. Red

Add a new sub-rule to “Hammers” “Colour” as follows:

If a Colour hammer is used on another monkey, one of the following happens:
If that monkey is Brown, that monkey changes colour,
If that monkey is Purple, Increase the number of bananas that monkey has by 3.
If that monkey is Yellow, that monkey moves to the back of the line.
If that monkey is Red, If possible decrease the number of bananas that monkey has by 3.

Add to the end of “Doing the Dance” :

Name: Colour Change n_A; Complexity 1; The monkey in position n_A changes colour.

Finally, randomly set the colour of all monkeys.

against This would cause negative bananas. It is always possible to subtract three from a number. There would also be conflicts. Say I use the slege hammer on a yellow monkey. Does it move to the barrel and then to the back of the line? Or does it move to the back of the line and then the barrel?

I like the color monkey idea. But it needs work.  against

The way I read it, that third section’s a new ‘Colour’ hammer. A ‘Sledge’ hammer used on a yellow monkey would do nothing more or less than before.

But definitely fix the negative bananas problem…

oh. I miss read it. I thought it triggered whenever a monkey was hit with a hamemr. But yeah, negative bananas issue remains.

For negative banana reasons above.

I’m here because it doesn’t actually say what color a monkey becomes when he changes, nor how to determine it.

Yes it does.

And anyways, colored monkeys leads to racism. We should just have like, colored hats or something.
