Hi everyone! I'm from Russia and I adore for Jumanji. My English is not very good, but I'll try to do my best ;-)

I know many people on this forum are already making Jumanji replicas, and it maybe slowly becomes common thing) But I grew up watching Jumanji movie and now it is one of my favorites. I always wanted to have my own Jumanji game, so I decided to make a replica. In fact I started the work in January 2014, but I realized just now that I can make my own thread here :-D


So, I already have many reference pictures of movie game board that can be found on the Internet, and many movie stills. I even found and bought four holographic cards with tokens to make ones more accurate.

I started to post my progress on Behance first, but now I will post it in this thread too.
This is the link to Work in Progress on Behance. You can find there all my progress for now.

And there is some pictures of it.

This is my drawings based on reference pictures of hero board and movie stills.

Tokens are done already. This is my first try. I think the monkey is perfect, but other three tokens need to be redone. Croc's eyes in fact slightly different, rhino needs to be more brutal and elephant's head is bigger than original.

The dice. It's not the final of course, just base.

So, the work goes not so fast as I want because of perfectionism, but it goes :)

Please, do comment and say what you think about all this :)

Here's a screen shot of the dice from the dvd. Your dice diagram on that sheet of paper has the "2" and "5" reversed. They need to be swapped.
(if you haven't done so already.)

In fact I have almost all movie stills with dice and some pictures of props on that sheet of paper :cool

It's interesting that after comparison of these images I found out that in some scenes of the movie there were pair of identical dice and in some scenes there were different ones. Well, I decided to make pair of different dice. I thought it'll be more intriguing :D By the way the difference between these was in general that "1" and "6" were on opposite sides.

And this is what I finally get. I Hope there isn't any mistake after all :)

I think I share blueprints when (or "if" :D) my replica will be completely done. Well, I tried to do these perfectly accurate to the movie board. So I think many people would be interested in it.

Hi everyone! There's my progress by now.

I've completely remade rhino token. I think it's perfect enough now :D

And the dice were sanded to look like imperfect cube. I placed temporary spots on these to make it easy to drill holes instead them next.

There is a rule that ordinary 6-sided dice such as these must always have opposite faces add up to 7. Beyond that, there are several alternative ways in which the markings can be arranged such as the orientations of the 2, 3 and 6 pip faces; and as you've discovered, there are two different basic ways to arrange the faces: when looking at the corner where (for example) 1, 2 and 3 meet, the order can go either clockwise or counterclockwise.

Hi everyone!
So the tokens and dice' molds are ready. I've placed the picture of original movie tokens above so you can compare it with my replicas below. They aren't perfectly identical of course, but I think they good enough though. I will try to cast the tokens in resin with some metallic, aging etc. effects later.

Mmm, interesting thread. Owning two of markpoons boards, which look great already, I'm really curious how this one will turn out. This is a very complicated prop, so looking forward to so more WIP pics...
