Jungle Speed Review and Giveaway

Winner Comment #3 -NW Homesteader said...twitter follower


The last couple of nights my girls have gone to bed early - as in before midnight. Besides getting more sleep, this means that my husband and I have also had more free time to spend together.

We've spent that time trying to beat each other at Jungle Speed!


Jungle Speed is kind of like a combination between the card games spoons and war.

In the game, all of the cards are dealt out evenly - face down - to all of the players. Then the players take turns flipping over the top card in the pile. When any of the symbols match, the players with the matching symbols try to grab a yellow totem that's sitting in the middle of the table. The slower player has to take all of the winners cards and add them to the bottom of their pile. The first person to get rid of all of their cards wins!

To add a little difficulty, some of the symbols are quite similar. It's actually really easy to grab the totem by mistake thinking that the symbols match. There are also special cards mixed into the deck that temporarily change the rules.

The first time we played my husband and I struggled a bit. The similar cards really messed us up, and we couldn't remember what all of the special cards meant. We caught on about half way through the game. Then I dominated with my powerful observation skills and lightning fast reflexes.

To Buy - Jungle Speed is a great family game! It was fun with just the two of us, but would also be appropriate for up to 10 players. I imagine it would get pretty crazy with extra people thrown into the mix.

As it is a little more complicated than war, the age recommendation states for ages 8 and up. I definitely agree! My five year old would have been able to understand the basic matching concept, but there's no way that she could ever get the totem.

It debuted in the US in July and can currently be purchased for just $19.99 nationwide at Toy”R”Us, Target, Walmart, etc.

  14. Bugs & Co sounds like another game my kids would enjoy. Plus it can play up to 8 players and with 6 kids at home, this would be perfect.
