Jumanji board game
Jumanji proved a hit at the box office despite tepid reviews

It's one of approximately three used in the film, another of which sold for $60,800 on eBay earlier this year.

The box features the rules, which will be instantly familiar to anyone who grew up during the 1990s: "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 get another turn. The first player to reach the end wins.

"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 film starred the late Robin Williams in the role of Alan Parrish. The sale will also include Williams' jumpsuit from the popular sitcom Mork and Mindy.

Also on offer is Peter Fonda's "Captain America" chopper from Easy Rider and a jacket worn by Orson Welles in Citizen Kane.
