From all time classic board games to new comers, board games make the perfect Christmas gift. Jungle Runners is the all new exciting original family board game from Tactic Games. The aim of the Jungle Runners family board game is to be the first one to move your team around the board, across the river and to the finish line.
Setting up the Game
Set up is quite easy. This is a game that you play inside the box. The box is actually your game board. You place two pieces inside the box and assemble the falling tree and rotating bridge. Place the waterfall upright in the corner of the box. Attach the crocodile’s tale the the side of the box. Next: Attach the game characters to the included plastic stands. Place the game board on the table with the start board outside of the box.
How to Play
Each player chooses three characters of the same color and places them on the start. The youngest player starts the game by rolling one of the three die. They move just one character forward. The Elephant moves with the biggest die, the tiger moves with the medium size die and the monkey moves with the smallest die. The three characters each move directly on the game board, but in different routes. The elephant always crosses the river using the tree. The tiger runs over the turtle bridge and the monkey flings himself over the crocodile’s tail.
Obstacles like the falling tree, spinning turtles, or the crocodile’s tail could slow your team down.
Should there be a character on the space that you land on you get to move ahead to the next space. The turn then passes clockwise to the next person
Winning the Game
You need to be the first player to get your team ( all three of your characters) to the finish line.
Overall Jungle Runners family board game is a fun game with little rules to learn making it fun for young and old.
Joining Jungle Runners in Tactic Games’ family category are other new items:
- Ninja Rush gives each player (ninja) the power to hold the sands of time. On each turn, flip the Sensei cards and then with ninja-quick reflexes, quickly choose another player to flip and to where. Remembering not to let the sand timer run out, you can win Ninja Stars for success. However Ninjas need to be very focused because quick change of direction cards can come up at any time. Tactic’s super fun 3D Ninjas characters are the perfect complement to the super-fast reaction gameplay.
- Go Go Eskimo players are adventurers trying to catch the most fish of one kind. They then race to camp and see who’s collected the most. Along the way, each player uses cards to move any adventurer that matches the card through the ice valleys where they can catch fish. They have to watch out for the polar bear that also moves around the board too. If you go fishing in his area he might not be too happy with you. Fun graphics and the tactile fur hoods on the pawns; 3D snow hills, fish tokens and scoring tokens, help make this a high-quality game that will be played again and again.
The new games join Tactic’s other family games that already include the multi-award-winning, Alias (over 5 million sold), Some Bunny’s Hiding, Emojito, Totem, Touche, We Detectives, 3 Little Pigs and Colorology, among others.
