Looking for a fun family game that everyone from kindergartners to grandparents can enjoy? Jungle Speed is a new game that encourages the family to sit together around the table and take turns playing a card from the stack in front of them. The little ones will enjoy the fact that they don’t have to hold cards in their hands, and adults will like the easy play that allows conversation.
The concept is simple – play a card, and check to see if it matches any of the other players’ top cards in shape or color. If it does, grab the totem! First one to grab the totem wins the round, and the other player takes both stacks of cards.
The game shifts with the addition of three special cards, alike enough to be a challenge, but different enough that a quick 5 year old can play — and keep pace with Mom or Dad. We were sent this game to check out recently, and it’s quickly become one of our go-to games.
Disclosure: I was mailed a game to review; I received no compensation for this post.
