From the Publisher...

was invented approximately 3000 years ago by the Aboulou Tribe in Eastern Trisopotamia to determine the shares of food each member received after a successful hunt. The Aboulous originally used eucalyptus leaves as cards for the game. These early games usually ended in bloody fights because, unfortunately, all of the cards were identical. This simple error nearly drove the tribe to extinction. This is why Jungle Speed remained unknown by the outside world until the 20th century, when 2 clever gamethropologists, Tom & Yako, replaced the leaves with the playing cards we now use today.

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. It's a Jungle Speed Free-for-all... Do you have the catlike reflexes and the eye of the hawk to win?

Warning - Not for children under 3 years old

Sometimes it is fun to set the strategy games aside and play something just for fun. This dexterity game has become a hit with my non-gamer friends. We have a lot of laughs and because of games like this we have been able to open them up to other games. I love how the patterns in this game are so close that you have to be careful. We get some tense rounds as everyone waits to reach for the totem. Fun family game!

This popular party game is one of the few speed matching games (kind of like Set) that is actually really fun. This new version is the "safe" one, since people kept getting head injuries from the sharp-edged wooden totem. I GUESS this is wiser...
