The Game

Jenga is a simple, fun and very suspenseful experience at it’s core. The premise is super simple – pull a block from the tower and place it on top. But as the turns go the tower becomes more unstable making each pull and place a very tricky undertaking. You’ll need some luck and a steady hand to make it to the end as the winner is the last person to remove a block without causing the tower to fall. The great thing is that that game is so easy to setup and you can play almost anywhere with anyone.

The Jenga Classic set comes with 54 Jenga hardwood blocks, stacking sleeve with instructions.
