Impressive Timelapse Of A Man Making A Replica Jumanji Board Game From Scratch

August 28, 2017

This is a 15-minute timelapse video (feel free to skip around) of Youtuber Steve Richter building a Jumanji board game from scratch. Like, from scratch scratch. If it was any more from scratch he would have had to grow the trees and cut them down himself. He does a really impressive job, including installing magnets under the board's game token start locations so all you have to do is throw the players in and they stand up (clip of that at 14:50). Man, I wish Jumanji was a real magical game that actually worked, I'd play it all the time. But sadly, it isn't, and all my friends want to do is play spin the 2-liter and make out with each other all the time. "Gross." Right? If I wanted to kiss somebody so bad I'd go to the kissing booth at the county fair like a normal person. I heard for an extra quarter they'll even swap gum with you.

Keep going for the video.

  • Impressive. But watching it, I felt that the whole thing was sponsored by DeWalt. ;)

  • GeneralDisorder

    Dewilt is one of the best pro-sumer grade tools on the market. However, here's a list of the tools whose brand I could identify that weren't Dewalt:
    Irwin clamps
    Dremel brand high speed rotary tool
    Ridgid drill press (maybe)
    Workmate workbench

    The scroll saw was not dewalt but I couldn't tell you what it was (something with black and red... doesn't really narrow it down any).

    Dewalt makes everyone of those those things. So you'd think if it was sponsored they would have made sure their paid shill was only using their products.

  • Dennis

    Wicked awesome.

  • TheQiwiMan

    Aw.. he skips the part where he sacrifices a virgin to imbue the board with Satanic magic. Cheap replica. :-(

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    you need David Alan Grier as well to complete the ritual
