What is it
Your keen eye and swift hand can win the day—if you can stop laughing long enough to catch your breath!
Each turn you’ll flip over a card from the top of your deck. If the symbol on your card matches another player’s card, you both grab for the totem. The loser must take the winner’s cards into his own stack!
Be careful though: if you grab the totem at the wrong time, you take everyone’s face-up cards into your hand.

What our experts think
Jungle Speed was a very fast paced and exciting game – we had lots of screams and giggles from our testers! This is great for getting children to interact with each other, improving social skills, as well as developing attention skills.
The game was surprisingly challenging as some of the cards were very similar, so you have to pay close attention while also being quick to grab the totem. The instructions are tricky to understand at first (our testers used an online video to help them) but the game is easy to play once you’ve got the hang of it. We also like that there is a bag included, so the game can be taken out and about.
