Jumanji Fan Steven Richter Builds Replica From Scratch

Making a Jumanji Board -Timelapse

According to the late Robin Williams, the word jumanji is Zulu for “many effects”. While I’m not 100% sure of its validity, this real-life board game lives up to that definition.

Steven Richter is a sculptor and prop-maker by trade and he lent his fantastic skills to a Jumanji board game just like the one from the 1995 film. Rather than any paranormal forces pulling the pieces around, Richter’s version uses simple magnets but the attention to detail is out of this world.

You can watch how the board was made below.
