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 maintain during the many fits of maniacal laughter! The wooden Totem 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. In order to win you must be the first player to get rid of all of your cards. Each turn, all of the players reveal one of their cards. If two cards are identical, those players must make a grab for the Totem. The faster player then gives their cards to their unfortunate adversary. To add to the difficulty, certain cards are almost identical, which can trick a hapless player into grabbing the Totem by mistake -- a grave error.
Other cards force all players to make a grab at once, change the method of play, or otherwise add to the difficulty.
Note: The edition of the Jungle Speed in the video below is different from the one we are selling. The one below is an older edition.
"Really quick to teach, fast - would make a great filler before/between longer games, 2-10 players so good for most groups, (has) nice components" - BGG user Victoria B
"It’s an addictive game where we develop a good ability to observe the cards, so the games become more competitive. Very fun and portable. And it has the distinction of being one of the few that my girlfriend (non gamer) asks to play." - BGG user Rafael Duarte
"I love this game. Unless you hate the concept, I think you should buy it. I hear it's fun for children but with over 100 plays of the base game under my belt, I can attest to the enjoyment that it gives adults." - BGG user Behrooz Shahriari
