Classic Jenga (Hasbro)
Product code: AC3161
A tower building game.
Jenga is played with 54 wooden blocks; each block is 3 times as long as
it is wide, and slightly smaller in height than in width. The blocks are
stacked in a tower formation; each story is three blocks placed adjacent
to each other along their long side, and each story is placed
perpendicular to the previous (so, for example, if the blocks in the
first story are pointing north-south, the second story blocks will point
east-west). There are therefore 18 stories to the Jenga tower. Since
stacking the blocks neatly can be tedious, a plastic loading tray is
Once the tower is built, the person who built the tower moves first.
Moving in Jenga consists of taking one and only one block from any story
except the completed top story of the tower at the time of the turn, and
placing it on the topmost story in order to complete it. Only one hand
at a time may be used to remove a block; both hands can be used, but
only one hand may be on the tower at a time. Blocks may be bumped to
find a loose block that will not disturb the rest of the tower. Any
block that is moved out of place may be left out of place if it is
determined that it will knock the tower over if it is removed. The turn
ends when the next person to move touches the tower, although he or she
can wait 10 seconds before moving for the previous turn to end if they
believe the tower will fall in that time.
The game ends when the tower falls in any significant way -- in other
words, any piece falls from the tower, other than the piece being
knocked out to move to the top. The loser is the person who made the
tower fall (i.e. whose turn it was when the tower fell); the winner is
the person who moved before the loser.
