Great Game Avalon Hill Lost in the Jungle!
November 23, 2002

If this was the original Discovery version of the game I would give it Five stars. I write this 23 three years after playing a game and having to improvise on rules that made no sense. So many mistakes and so little playtesting went into the Avalon Hill version that I remember coming across the game at a tag sale and the owner telling me to : 'Take it, it's yours!' I loved the original game and when modified, fixed up and played according to sensible rules, it was a good role-playing game. Unfortunately, Dungeons and Dragons got no competetion from the AH version of the game boardgame. This is probably why the German gamemakers took over the market, they knew not only how to design a game, but also a rulebook!
