What It Is
What It Is
In the game Jungle Speed, each player must rely on his or her powers of observation and quick reflexes. 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. On 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, which sits in the middle of the table. The player who grabs the totem gives his or her cards to the slower player.
To add to the difficulty, certain cards are almost identical, which can trick players into grabbing the totem by mistake. Other cards force all players to make a grab at once, change the method of play, or otherwise add to the difficulty.
The game comes with a cloth bag to hold the pieces, 80 cards, a rulebook, and the totem. Jungle Speed is for two to eight players.
