Ubongo Junior brings the fun and lively tile-placing play from the original hit puzzle game Ubongo to players ages five and up. Each player starts the game with seven puzzle boards and nine tiles of different shapes and colors, each displaying a different cartoon animal. The players race to place their animal tiles to perfectly fill a specific area on their boards as quickly as possible. The fastest player shouts “Ubongo!” and quickly takes colorful plastic gems from the bag. The other players keep racing; as long as the hourglass is still running, there is still time to place the animal tiles and earn some gems. At the end of the game, the player with the most valuable gem collection wins. Each of the 50 puzzle boards has an easy side and a more challenging side, for a total of 100 puzzles. Pack in the fun, with Ubongo Junior!
