Please refer to this thread for the official rules.

Feel free to ask questions, make comments and by all means... talk amongst yourselves. :D

The "Year of the Monkey" comes from the Chinese calendar. The monkey is the ninth in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac.

You mean any monkey or ape like creature, fictional or real ?
I think it's just a nod to the Chinese year of the monkey, so you're supposed to monkey around and make a prop:). Hauntiholik can clarify that.

I also would like to make the monkey optional. The last $20 prop challenge didn't have a theme and I really liked the range of projects--from a jack-in-the-box to an inexpensive projector.

It says "includes a monkey in it's design" yes or no.
I just looked at the rules again and you're correct. I didn't see that the first time I read the rules, so I think it was added once Hauntiholik finalized the thread.

Any chance the requirement to incorporate a monkey in the design could be removed or modified?

No and no. But, I'll make this easier. A monkey must be included in the design. Although the theme is based on the animal of the zodiac, we are only using the word "monkey". So, what comes to mind when you think of the word?

Monkey paw
Monkey fist knot
Flying monkey
Monkey mummy
Monkey spider
Cymbal-Playing Monkey
Sock monkey
Monkey flower
Monkey gargoyle
Zombie monkey
Voodoo monkey
Laboratory monkey prop
Pirate monkey
Monkey-fish hybrids ala P.T. Barnum
Monkey Brains Bowl
Monkey pumpkin
Monkey fur
Phantom of the Opera had a monkey atop a music box
Can you incorporate the sound of a monkey into your prop?
etc...

If you really have a prop that you want to make but you don't want to make a prop that involves a monkey theme, you can take a mulligan and use gorilla glue.

That's quite a list, and gorilla glue. Can't argue against that !

OK--I was thinking too much inside the box--so step one of this challenge was pushing me out of it. Thanks!
