A terrible drought has struck a bountiful jungle and all the animals are left with no food to eat. Jungle wardens' airplanes are parachuting food packages to the animals, but each animal prefers its own kind of food! To complicate the matters further, all packages look the same and animals first need to open them to see what's inside. All the animals rush wildly for the clearings where food packages appear...
The object of Jungle Chase is to collect as many food packages as possible before they run out. Players do so by controlling six animals each of varying strength on a hexagonal board representing a jungle with clearings and landing spots for food packages. On their turn, players roll two six-sided dice to determine which animals may move one space each, with doubles enabling special moves. When animals of opposing players meet the stronger animal chases its opponent off the board.
Contents of food packages are hidden from players and a player whose animal enters the package space may look at it without revealing the contents to other players. If the food is appropriate for the animal, the player may now collect it. When all packages, whose number is determined at the beginning of the game, have been collected the player with the most food is the winner.
Jungle Chase is a "classical" board game with game pieces, dice and a board with a very deliberate old-school feel and yet quite modern in it's final execution in terms of tempo, duration etc. Basic mechanics and inherent logic are quite simple and yet the game strives to offer enough depth for an adult to enjoy the game as well.
