The monkey wants to understand emotions and needs the players’ help to do so. The tiles indicate whose turn it is. An emotion word appears with an explanation, followed by a question. One of the players answers the question. The monkey opens the pot. The player then adds the answer to the drink with his or her game tile. After five questions, the monkey drinks the potion. He can now feel the emotion!
