This Working Screen-Quality Replica Is As Close As You’ll Get To Playing Jumanji

A whopping 25 years ago, the game-changing action-adventure blockbuster movie Jumanji — starring the late, great Robin Williams — first hit theaters. Based around the fictional story of a cursed board game that brings in-game events into the real world, the flick captured the imaginations of millions around the world — and some of us still enjoy it to this day. Now, to celebrate the movie turning half-a-century old, some intrepid fans have crafted a genuine, functioning replica of the on-screen board game prop you can buy.

Crafted from genuine hardwood, the game is CNC machined and hand-detailed to make each one look exactly right as it appeared in the film — all the way down to the instructions and warnings on the inside of the board. But what’s even cooler is what’s hiding under the game board. To make it as spot-on as possible, the designers have hidden a Raspberry Pi computer underneath to actually illuminate the glowing green center dome and project the game’s riddles. They also included hidden speakers activated by picking up the game board that play the ominous drum music from the film. Furthermore, the game pieces are 3D-printed from beautiful materials — like the monkey’s solid green translucent resin — before being hand-painted and detailed; they even have magnets in their base to keep them upright on the board. Back the project on Kickstarter now starting at $293.
