About

For six months I lived in the heart of the Amazon rainforest....

    ....without electricity     ...without ice     ...without windows or doors        ...without cars & without much contact with the outside world.

For six months I simply worked, slept, ate, & created to bring Jungle Tumble! to you.

Jungle Tumble! 

Is a simple, interactive dice game where everyone plays at the same time in a wild dash of matching, but only one controls the power of the Jungle Tumble! die each turn. Will you choose to change the odds of the game or will you leave it up to fate?

Featuring custom, rainforest-themed dice, with original artwork inspired by the animals I saw while in the Amazon. 

The jungle animal symbols for the dice can be seen above and include a poison dart frog, a jaguar, a spider monkey, a tree boa, a butterfly, and a toucan.

When I was in the Amazon, my neighbors were animals like Gavin, the three-toed sloth. If you're like Gavin, and you just like hanging around instead of playing games, you can instead donate to conservation efforts in the rainforest by pledging any amount at the first pledge level.

The proceeds will directly help fund equipment, field guides, and other scientific tools for volunteer programs working towards building a more sustainable Amazon.

Risks and challenges

I have a strong plan in place to fulfill all the rewards for my project goal. I have a manufacturer in place to produce high volumes of dice for all of Jungle Tumble's needs.

If something unforeseen comes up, you can count on me to communicate clearly and often about what happened and how it is impacting the project.
