Jenga

Jenga is a game of physical and mental skill. During the game, players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower constructed of multiple blocks (usually 51, 54 or 78 or so). Each block removed is then balanced on top of the tower, creating a progressively taller but less stable structure. The name jenga is derived from a Swahili word meaning "to build."

Fun Factor

Jenga is a game of skill. It is fun, engaging, and challenging. The Jenga tower consist of multiple wooden blocks. These blocks can be small for table top Jenga sets or large for Giant Jengas. The blocks are placed in levels with three blocks per level, placed next to each other along their long side. Each level is placed perpendicular to the previous level. One by one, contestants get a chance to remove a single block from the stack, and place it on the top. The stack becomes increasingly unstable, until the unlucky player removes the block that makes the whole tower fall down. Anticipation and excitement grows after each round. Some good-humoured bantering is allowed, and adds to the anticipation and excitement of the game. Giant Jenga is suitable for teenagers and adults, but be careful that the blocks don't fall on you when the tower starts falling over.
