My niece in Canada told me about Jenga. She said it was one of their favorite games to play. I went to the toy store and see if they have it. Yes, they selling it but i didn’t buy because of the price. For me Php899 is a huge amount and I thought there are other important things to buy that I needed most.
My nephew here celebrated his birthday and asked his sister to buy Jenga as his present. His sister granted and we got the chanced to play this game but not at all times unless we visit nephew’s house.
Some info, Jenga is derived from swahili word meaning build. It is a physical and mental skill game. It was created by Leslie Scott, and currently marketed by Parker brothers, a division of Hasbro. To play this game, players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower constructed of 54 blocks. Each block removed is then placed on top of the tower, creating a progressively taller structure. The game ends when the tower falls, or if any piece falls from the tower other than the piece being knocked out to move to the top. The winner is the last person to successfully remove and place a block.
It’s fun playing Jenga, and the nice thing about this game, you can play this game alone, with friends and your family. Everyone in the family can enjoy this exciting game but kid should be atleast 6 year-old because of the small parts.
Well, we have one now in the house, I saw similar to jenga. And surprisingly the price was really cheap. If jenga is Php 899, this one cost only Php88, cheap right? Same with jenga, it composed of 54 pieces of wood blocks but unlike jenga with only one color, the one I bought was colorful. It has a die which will decide what block you will stack or move. And same with traditional jenga, the game is to pull out a block without crashing the stack to win the game. Win by being the last player to remove a block without causing the block to crash.
