On his rampage, he makes it to the Cove of Wonders where a board game falls on top of him. Reading the title, "Gimme Gimme Gimme: The Game", Mort decided to take it back to the King in order to make him happy. Clover is skeptical at first, but King Julien (after playing the game) decided to make money of his own so that the people could share the same happiness he felt while receiving things in the game.
