"Jenga wobbles but don't make it fall down!"

Jenga is one of those games that either everyone has played or at least heard of, it’s a classic. What makes it such a classic in my opinion is that it is a game that is easy to understand and can be played by all the family.

What is Jenga?

Jenga is a game that is based around 54 wooden blocks. Each block measures 1.5×2.5×7.5 cm making them 3 times as long as they are wide.

These blocks are placed in rows on 3 one row on top of the other in order to create a tower. One row will be vertical, the next horizontal, this pattern continues throughout the tower until the 18 levels are in place.

The aim of the game is to pull out one block at a time and to place that block on top of the tower to create more levels. Sounds simple enough but as the game goes on the structure becomes more unstable and the game can become very intense.

My experience

I absolutely love this game and have been a fan for many years. Setting up the game is easy enough but can be a bit tedious. However once this has been done you are all set!

The rules of the game are very simple to understand making the game suitable for a wide range of ages. The blocks are also of a good size for little hands to get hold of making it perfect for the kids to play.

Whilst I am on the subject of the blocks I have to say that they are extremely hard wearing. We have had our set of jenga for about 10 years and the blocks are still going strong. It is not often these days you can get a decent game which still remains in tact for that long.

Jenga has always provided great entertainment in my house. And although it is great fun to play it also helps the mind to think strtegically and helps to improve your hand co-ordination. When that tower is wobbling you need a steady hand!

Price and availability

You can buy this game online and in most toy stores it is priced between £8 and £12 depending on where you buy it from.


I cant recommend this game highly enough. It is the perfect game to get all the family involved or for if you are having a night in with friends. A classic game that deserved 5 stars.
