Jungle Speed Safari
Normally, calm reigns supreme amongst the animals of the jungle, but when the time comes to eat, the animals gather round the forest of totems and their wild instincts take over. The hungriest animals race to catch their prey first. Others become angry and shout, while the chameleon hides. When the hunter appears, there is panic as the animals race to protect themselves.
To begin your safari in the jungle, simply deal out the cards evenly and place the five coloured food totems in the centre of the play area. Each player’s cards are kept face-down, until you flip the top card face-up and resolve its action on your turn. Whichever player gets the most cards into their score pile wins the game.
There are a number of different cards in the deck, and each invites you to experience a different kind of challenge. When a hungry animal card is revealed, you’ll race to grab the totem that shows that animal’s favourite food. You might also have to soothe angry animals by imitating the animal revealed on the card, using animal noises and gestures.
Shy chameleon cards force players to blend in with their surroundings, either by touching an object the same colour as the chameleon or by grabbing the totem that matches the chameleon’s colour. Finally, the dangerous hunter cards transform one player into the hunter and the others into prey. The player who reveals the hunter card becomes the hunter and tries to put his hand on the score pile of another player. All of the prey players must protect themselves by covering their score piles with their hands.
