Product Description

Can the hiker cross the river without getting up close and personal with 'gators, snakes, and piranha? Move the planks among the tree stumps to help our hero across! This innovative new brainteaser is as challenging as they come, and the jungle adventure theme makes it compelling to play. The drawstring bag makes it great for travel. Forty beginner-to-expert challenge cards show where to place the stumps and planks to start each game, and a magnet in our hiker's feet makes moving the planks a snap. Getting all the way across... that won't be so easy!

Much fun
January 23, 2006
An interesting 1 player game, not many of those are very captivating. It comes with 40 different levels but most adults will find that the first 20 levels are just too easy. Levels 21-40 will make you think a little, can't wait to get the expansion with harder levels and a dog to rescue :)
Great (but card #6?)
January 13, 2005

I was looking for a game to have on a coffee table for folks to fiddle with during hors d'ouvres or after dinner and before dessert. I like little logic puzzles like this.

So what happened on card number six? Is it just me or is the card wrong? I was flummoxed from that moment on. I couldn't look at a single happy gator without being suspicious of factory error. Apart from that card, this game fulfilled my hopes beautifully.
