Is a donkey going to make it up the steep walls of the Grand Canyon? Normally? Yes. But you and your fellow donkey handlers need to get loads up to the top of the route as well. You need to have a keen eye for how much each donkey can carry. Make the right calls, use the favors of employees at the best time and deny contracts that you don’t believe in.
In Donkey Valley every round there is a different donkey that needs to be loaded with luggage. Each donkey can have a specific effect that influences how much they can carry. Players play face down load cards and make a call if they believe the donkey is overloaded or not. If they made the right call, they earn points and after eight rounds the player with the most points wins.
