About

Welcome to The Jungle is a 2-4 player game, where the goal is to become Kingpin of the majority of territories in The Jungle. Players will do this by gaining resources and money to increase the level of each territory in play.

Players gain resources and money by Gambling, spinning the Roulette Spinner, drawing Smash and Grab cards, selling weapons, and winning "Turf Wars".

In a Turf War, players fight each other for territories in their control. When a player enters a Turf War they draw 15 cards from the "Crew" deck, choosing 10 they would like to keep. Players can use Weapons and special ability cards to strengthen their deck. Turf wars are 3 rounds, with the player that wins two out of the three rounds winning the turf, and winning the resources and money from the territory.

There's a lot of ways Welcome to The Jungle can be played so read the Rules and Play section below for more details.

Game summary

  • A board game for 2-4 players
  • Run time is 30 min per player
  • Combination of worker placement, resource management, card battling, deck building, and gambling bring a unique player experience
  •  Sandbox style game where what you can do is limitless
  • "Street Cred" leveling up card system makes each play through unique
  • Each crew character has a backstory which builds on The Jungle lore
  • Detailed artwork brings game to life
  • 3 different game modes available to play

Spinning the ROULETTE SPINNER where you can win resources and money, or bet on any players spin... including your own.

Drawing a SMASH AND GRAB card where random tasks are performed for resources and money, or where Warfare cards are gained for future use in a Turf War.

Completing a WEAPON DEPOT transaction where you may either buy or sell Weapons for later use in a Turf War.

Completing a GOODIE transaction where you buy and/or sell resources to be used during a Turf action or for Gambling.

Completing a TURF action where you can take over an unclaimed territory, raise the Street Cred Level of a territory in your control, or declare a Turf War for territory you don’t control.

Each territory has 5 levels of "Street Cred", with each level having particular resources and money needed to gain them. The levels are Starter, Associate, Soldier, Underboss, and Kingpin.

When players take over territory, they use the resources and money listed on the card to increase the level. Players can also fight each other to raise the level. When players fight each other in a Turf war, a combination of Crew cards, weapons, and ability cards are used to battle each other.

The level cannot change hands once a territory reaches Kingpin. Players will also receive special abilities once they reach Kingpin that can be used once per full players rounds.

The first player to have the majority of territories at Kingpin level wins the game.

Watch our game overview video, and read our game manual below for more details on setup, player actions, turf wars, and how to play Welcome to The Jungle.

When players fight other players for control of their territories, they draw Crew cards. Each crew member is unique and has their own backstories which build on the lore of Welcome to The Jungle.


Risks and challenges

This is Coffee Cake Gaming’s first Kickstarter, and we do not have experience in this field. However, with our past experience as musicians self producing albums, and having a very DIY attitude, we were able to fully develop this game on our own.

By networking with experienced developers, manufacturers, and fulfillment centers we were able to analyze our costs to manufacture the game. We are confident in the goal amount we’ve set being able to produce this high quality game you’ll enjoy.

Of course issues arise, but most issues are alleviated by us having the game fully developed with completed artwork and having print-ready files for our manufacturer. We will be using Pledge manager to handle our surveys and shipping costs, PandaGM for manufacturing, and Quartermaster Logistics for our fulfillment

We will also be in communication every week or two with any updates so no ones left in the dark.

We want to thank you all again for putting your faith in us, and this game. This really has been a labor of love, and we really hope you all love the game as much as we do.
