The game kit consists of a colourful playing board covered in cartoon jungle scenes, 11 plug-in rings for attaching the game parts to the board, all the jungle game parts needed, 4 explorers, 2 metal ball bearing boulders and a die.
The game is easy to assemble with the aid of the comprehensive instructions included. It might be helpful to supervise at this stage as it is important that the pieces are put together correctly. However, assembly is probably as much fun as the game itself!
The kids will really enjoy this game--they move around the board following moves, depending on which square they fall. As they explore the jungle, through the palm trees and across the rickety bridge, their mission is to be the first explorer to release the golden monkey at the top of the pagoda tree. But beware, of the rumble in the jungle and the other monkeys, who have set traps to stop your explorer in his tracks.
The Giraffe, watering hole, Rickety Bridge, Snake Pit Elephant Pass Wheel of Doom Monkey See-Saw and top of the Pagoda steps are all hazard spaces. Each of these has footprints marked. If your explorer lands on any of these he must stand on the steps marked and beware the rumble in the jungle! Because in the meantime all the players will be cranking the wheel of doom as they land on crank squares sending the boulder tumbling down the track. Any explorer who is knocked down by the boulder has to return to base camp. You can however, keep your explorer out of trouble by moving an opponent into a hazard space in your place.
This game has all of the fun of Mouse Trap and Snakes and Ladders rolled into one but beware the rumble in the jungle let's hope you're ready to roll. --Ben King
