There has been great joy, fun and laughter in the the Poppins house playing this wonderful game, which was sent for us to try out.
In Jungle Speed, you must rely on your keen sense of observation and quick reflexes. It requires a steady hand which can be hard to keep up, especially for me during all the fun!! The little wooden Totem had us baffled for a little while ( we are a family who doesn't really do instructions, we just like to get stuck in, not always the best way ) though soon realised that it sits in the middle of the table, waiting for the player with the fastest reflexes to snatch it up and win the game.
Each player is dealt a hand of cards, which are shared out and in order to win you must be the first player to get rid of all of your cards. On each turn, all of the players reveal one of their cards, and if two cards are identical, those players must make a grab for the Totem. The faster player then gives their cards to their opponent. To make this game a little more difficult ( Oh dear mummy does really do do difficult ) certain cards are almost identical, which can trick one ( mostly me ) into grabbing the Totem by mistake. This is a real fun game, enjoyed by us all, a little too tricky for the four year old, but he had had fun grabbing the totem anyway!! I can only praise this game, which is fast, furious and trains ones quick thinking and lightning reflexes to outwit opponents. It is aimed at 7+ and I know many adults alike, enjoy this fun game, especially over a nice cold glass of vino. I can only imagine the game having a little extra fun to it ;0) The game can be purchased from many lovely independent retailers that can be found here at Find Your Game Store or indeed over at Amazon
