About This Quiz

When it was released in 1995, "Jumanji" was an instant hit. Starring Robin Williams and Kristen Dunst, the iconic book turned movie stole the hearts of millions. The success of the film led to a flurry of merchandising goods, and the board game has since become a family favorite! Do you have what it takes to make it out alive, though? 

Unlike a lot of other board games, you'll have to trust your fellow players. If you have any hope of surviving, you'll have to work together and carefully roll the dice. Along the way, you'll face some of the scariest challenges you've ever seen. From angry monkeys to biting insects and rhinos that won't get out of the way, you'll have to bring your professional game-playing skills to make it to the center of the board. Will your doomsday grid fill up before you get the chance to say the word?

Gather the family around, and enjoy the nostalgia you'll feel as you play. Will you be able to roll a five or an eight when your friend needs your help, or will you do your best to make sure you take the winning slot first? Scroll down to get started, but don't forget your Boonie hat! Let's find out how well you do.
