Alan Parrish, 1969: [reads] Jumanji: a game for those who seek to find / a way to leave their world behind. You roll the dice to move your token, doubles gets another turn, the first player to reach the end wins.
Judy Shepherd: [reads] Adventurers beware: do not begin unless you intend to finish. The exciting consequences of the game / will vanish only when a player has reached Jumanji and called out its name.
The movie Jumanji showed us that “It’s all fun and games until the fat lady sings”. It is when life gets complicated that we are being tested for our skills in life. Having a true meaning in life is all about taking responsability in the little things; every day performing actions that make the world a better place. Alan Parrish learned that when he got swallowed inside the game on a jungle for 20 years.
