When two kids find and play a magical board game, they release a man trapped in it for decades--and a host of dangers that can only be stopped by finishing the game. - Kenneth Chisholm

After being trapped in a jungle board game for 26 years, a Man-Child finally wins his release from it. But he is immediately forced to resume play, and this time, savage jungle creatures are released into the city. He must stop them, but how? - Joshua Davis

Jumanji, one of the most unique--and dangerous--board games ever, falls into the hands of the curious teen, Alan Parrish, in 1969. Mysterious and magical, the game strands the unsuspecting boy in the lush, savage forests of a mythical realm. Nearly three decades later, the game releases him before the awed eyes of the young orphaned siblings, Judy and Peter Shepherd. Now, the wild and incessant beat of the jungle's tribal drums is calling for the now-adult Alan and the other hesitant players, as the one who rolls the dice must never leave undone what the roll has started. Has anyone ever escaped from the game and Jumanji's formidable foes? - Nick Riganas

One of them rolls a 5 and Alan Parrish comes back and must find Sarah and finish the game. - George Britt
