Jungle Speed Board Game Review and Giveaway

    My family and I love to play board games.  It is a great way to spend quality time together and it allows us all to unwind after a long week of work and school.  We always try to choose games that will challenge us and make us think as well as allow us to have a lot of fun. It is very important to make time to have this type of interaction with our families.     We had a great time playing the board game Jungle Speed!  You have to be very observant and exhibit quick reflexes to play this game.  The purpose of the game is to be the first player to get rid of all of your cards.  During each turn, all of the players reveal one card.  If two of the cards are the same, both of the players who threw them down must run to grab the totem that is in the middle of the table.  The player who does not grab it first gets stuck picking up all of the cards that were thrown during that hand.     This might seem really easy but, there is a catch... Some cards appear to be identical but really … [Read more...]
