Tomy Rumble In The Jungle Game [Toy]

Amazon.co.uk Review

Indiana Jones eat yer heart out! This game is a must, bringing out the intrepid explorer in all of us! Designed for 2 to 4 players, aged 5yrs upwards, the game and its construction will appeal to every member of the family.

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

I was really impressed this game. It looks fantastic, bright colours and a fun gameboard!! I bought it for my kids for christmas and we played it several times. It plays in a similar way to Mousetrap but is an updated version. The kids couldn't wait to play it and were fascinated by the action of the 'boulder'. The game lasted anywhere between ten minutes and half an hour and there was great anticipation as anyone could win! The kids absolutely loved the action of the flying golden monkey!!!!!
It's a must for any family!!!

Yes, it takes a long time to put together the first time you play, but you soon get to know how it goes and once you've done it a couple of times is quite easy really. We've found the best thing to do (if you've got the space) is leave it constructed somewhere so you can keep playing over weekends/holidays etc.

My daughter is 6 and she loves this game, especially if we play the rule where, if you don't want to move your explorer, you can move an opponent's instead. She loves taking the opportunity to put mum & dad on a danger spot and send us back to the beginning when we get knocked off by the boulder. In fact the kids just love sending the boulder round the track and making the golden monkey jump out without even playing the game!

If you loved Mouse Trap as a child you will enjoy this game. It's a bit more fiddly to set up and put away, but much more fun to play.

I have to say that this game is hard to set up and takes time (As I saw in the other reviews) but only at first. Then each time you have to take it down and put it back up, it gets easier and easier. I put the game up again just yesterday for approximately the 5th time, and it was easy. I think it has to be better than Mouse Trap, because about 3 years ago I got the new Mouse Trap for Christmas. I did like it and thought it was very clever, but the ball always missed when it went round the loop and the cage always got stuck at the top, and the elastic band with the foot/boot thing snapped one day,and all the pieces got lost and sadly I had to throw it away. The only thing I think that is wrong with Rumble in the Jungle, is that you get bored of it quite quickly, But apart from that, it is very interesting and clever and I think it's very well built!

The process of assembling this game is extremely fiddly and as a result very lengthy. It is of utmost importance that the game is assembled perfectly otherwise the 'boulder' will not follow its intended route. Having eventually put it together correctly I found my daughter had lost her appetite for the game but we gave it a go anyway. We then found that the game took an age to play as we were for ever having to go back to the start. I think that with practice the setting up will occur quicker and we can have more time to play the game. With luck we may even finish it. All in all a disappointing result to a game that looks great when advertised.

I ummed and ahhed over buying this for Christmas for my 6 year old as the reviews were either 5 stars or no stars. But once you get it up properly, it's a really good game. You move the playing character through the obstacles, ie over the bridge and up the steps. I think it's better than Mousetrap as it has more booby traps which make you have to go back to the beginning. My 3 year old treats it as a marble run and so everyone's happy. I think if it's not working properly you need to look at how you've put it together as I think it's really stable and works every time.

This is actually a brilliant game. (You just need patience to assemble it. it donst take THAT long.) This is uniqe because of the traps. It is like 'Miss a turn' it has traps. It all has to do with the wheel of doom. You might will be asked (by the space you are on) to turn the wheel a number of times. When it gets so far the marble from it will go shooting round the track and set off all the traps. Traps include Snakes, broken bridges, huge giraffes and more.

I would really reccomend this. Just have patience with it.
