All the effects in the world can't disguise the thin plot.
You may call it thin, but Jumanji is actually something more along the line of unpredictable, both as a game, and a movie. And thats how it was intended. As you could see, the characters in this movie had no idea what they were getting into, so its a little easy to get lost, sure. But to say the plot is thin just doesn't make sense. It's there, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out.
Maybe you should go back and rewatch it again. You might catch it this time.

what do you mean thin plot? they find a game, play it, crap goes wrong, and they figure out how to stop it. how's that a thin plot?

I challenge this statement. Yes, the special effects are weak in this movie, but hey, when I was a kid, I didn't care about that. And, watching it as an adult, a plot where terrible things keep happening to the characters because they keep playing this wild game, but the plot DEMANDS that they continue until someone wins and the plight will be over, well, not too many movies can say that. Very few have a plot where at some point you don't just say 'hey, why don't they just stop?' for most, the answer is 'because there wouldn't be a movie otherwise' For this movie, it's 'because they want the horrors to stop.' They start it unknowing (especially in 1969 and even really in 1995, the world wide web had STILL not really gone past dial up internet, which doesn't do much, so global information sharing about a game wouldn't have really existed) and they finish it as fast as they can.
