“Jumanji: The Mobile Game” Out Now

NHN Entertainment and Idiocracy Games have teamed up to release a new mobile game based on the upcoming Jumanji movie. Jumanji: The Game is a multiplayer board game featuring characters from the upcoming movie starring The Rock, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillian.

Players will need to roll dice to move around the game board and collect real-estate and coins as they attempt to defeat their opponents. Victory can be had by bankrupting their opponent, taking over all of the real-estate in one section of the game, or by having the most coins at the end of the game. There lots of dice rolls, upgradeable abilities, and cards to collect. If that sounds familiar, it may be because this game is a branded version of Idiocracy Games’ “Pirates War”.

Jumanji: The Game is free and contains in app purchases. Here’s an excerpt from the game’s description and a trailer with more information about the game:
