In 1981, Chris Van Allsburg published his picture book, Jumanji. In 1995, the fantasy adventure film by the same name was released. It starred Robin Williams, Bonnie Hunt, Kirsten Dunst, and Jonathan Hyde.

It's probably not a coincidence, but the board game was released in 1995, too.
Who wants to play? But... (cue jungle noises)
description

This game is for 2-4 players. Each player should choose which color path they will follow (blue, red, orange, green). It should also be determined the maximum amount
of rolls there will be during the week.

ROLL ONE DIE

Jumanji Rules
• All books must be 150 pages, except space 10.
• Each player starts in their color's corner, moving towards the center.
• You do not need to wait for the other player(s) to finish reading before you take your next turn, but don't exceed the limit of rolls determined before the beginning of the game.
• When you land on a space, read a book that relates to that task. If your roll takes you to space 30 or beyond, you land on space 30. After reading the book for space 30, you are finished with the game.
• When you finish your book, post the number of the space you're on, book name, number of pages, when it was finished, rating, and how the book qualifies for the task. A short review of the book is suggested.

Sample Completion Post
Space 15
Book: The Jungle Book
Pages: 240 pages
Read: 2/19
Rating: 4 Stars
Qualification: Read a book set in a jungle. The Jungle Book is set in the jungles of India.

Spaces 1 - 15

1. A hunter from the darkest wild;
Makes you feel just like a child.
(view spoiler)

2. It twists and turns and tears up the ground.
It swirls and twirls and swallows up towns.
(view spoiler)

3. They grew much faster than bamboo;
Take care or they'll come after you.
(view spoiler)

4. The building is crumbling, You are in trouble,
Hurry and escape, Or you'll be covered in rubble.
(view spoiler)

5. His fangs are sharp; He likes your taste.
Your party better move posthaste.
(view spoiler)

6. Need a hand? Why don't you wait;
We'll help you out. We each have eight.
(view spoiler)

7. The clouds open up, the thunder roars,
Lightning cracks and down it pours.
(view spoiler)

8. They are strong creatures For their small size.
When there are many, They'll cause your demise.
(view spoiler)

9. Flying in from the sky,
He's in a bad mood.
Oh no! He's hungry.
The game is not food!
(view spoiler)

10. Beware the ground for which you stand,
The floor is quicker than the sand.
(view spoiler)

11. Hungry yellow flowers, that don't only eat flies,
They're hungry for you, and might make you cry.
(view spoiler)

12. A giant ice storm,
Cover your knees.
Quick, get inside,
Or you might freeze.
(view spoiler)

13. The water is scary because of this beast.
His teeth are massive, don't intrude on his feast.
(view spoiler)

14. Don't be fooled. It isn't thunder.
Staying put would be a blunder.
(view spoiler)

15. At night they fly. You'd better run.
These winged things are not much fun.
(view spoiler)

Spaces 16 - 30

16. Quick on their feet, covered in stripes,
It's a thundering herd, cloaked in black and white.
(view spoiler)

17. Every month at the quarter moon,
There is a monsoon in your lagoon.
(view spoiler)

18. They fly quick, unless in a breeze.
They'll bite your head, your arms and knees.
(view spoiler)

19. Thousands of teeth,
Swimming around you,
It's a fish feeding frenzy,
And they just found you.
(view spoiler)

20. Thirsty blood-suckers, black as the night,
They'll cover your body and give you a fright.
(view spoiler)

21. This will not be an easy mission;
Monkeys slow the expedition.
(view spoiler)

22. A slithering serpent, disguised on the ground,
It will wrap you up and drag you down.
(view spoiler)

23. A giant reptile, scaly and green.
It moves undetected, and he's quite mean.
(view spoiler)

24. Her spots are many, She sits in the trees.
She waits for her prey and nobody flees.
(view spoiler)

25. You're almost there, with much at stake.
But now the earth begins to shake.
(view spoiler)

26. Huge beasts on the move,
Driving through like a truck.
You can't outrun them,
Watch out for their tusks.
(view spoiler)

27. Pretty flowers, but don't take a smell.
Their petals are poison and will make you swell.
(view spoiler)

28. A mysterious force conjured up by a seer?
Keep playing the game or you may disappear.
(view spoiler)

29. There's a plague in the air; try not to breathe.
The fog is so think and it's a thousand degrees.
(view spoiler)

30. They like to laugh but they are not your friends,
If you take them lightly, it will be your end.
