Where else are you going to find purple hippos?

I was delighted to be asked to play Jungle Rummy before it's official Kickstarter campaign (October 1st) recently by fellow podcaster, Tales of the Jungle Crews creator, Kyle Crocker. 
Now Jungle Rummy isn't your ordinary card game, created by the adventurous skippers on the rivers of the world after their last deck of cards was eaten by a crocodile. The artwork on the cards is stunning, designed to look like old trip tickets, with the suits Hippos, Pistols, Boats and Skulls. The back story of the game is amusing, and if you have the time, be sure to listen to the Tales of the Jungle Crews Radio Plays to learn more about the adventurous man of adventure, Skipper Gary London, ESQ. 
Dani and I played this afternoon. The rules are easy to pick up, with helpful Rules Cards included to help keep game play on track. Once we figured out the rhythm of the game, it became a laugh filled all out battle to win! 
The gameplay itself is fast and entertaining. Dani and I were laughing so hard at times it was hard to remember that we were both trying to win! (I won)
