For my daughters birthday my sister brought this delightful game, perfect in more than one way!
The game I will now review is - "Jenga - girl talk edition"
Many of you will be familiar with Jenga game, with this one being the same in theory.
You get 54 oblong shaped blocks in the set, with a micro fibre case to held form your stack before play (and it's quite handy to store the blocks in when not in use too!).
As with the original you need to lay the bricks three ate a time one way, then the opposite way until you have built a "stack", the once you have carefully removed the micro fibre case you are good to go.
The rules are that you have to pick one block out at a time, with one hand only, without knocking the tower over, though I play against a 9 year old and an overzealous 5 year old, so I am a little lenient with the rules!
The difference with this brand of Jenga game is the fact it is aimed at young girls, being bright pink in colour and with the added bonus of having questions on each block that have to be answered, yeah right, like my daughter needs encouragement to talk!
The questions are all aimed at younger girls though, so don't get buying this for a boozy night in as the questions would be far to tame for that!
The questions include one's like - "What is your favourite website?" and Who is your best friend, and why?", with my favourite being "Who do you fancy at the moment?", my daughter goes really red and she never answers it, even after my son starts teasing her about any boy she is friends with!
It states in the instructions that a real Jenga pro, could potentially managed to take a brick, place it on top of the tower and could carry on doing so until they have made a 36 story add on (the tower starts at 18 stories), we managed about two go's each, then my son with pull a support brick out, we have explained to him that he should go for the easier one's but I think he just likes destroying the tower too much!
Price wise this was purchased for the price of £25.00 at www.toysrus.co.uk though is also available at www.amazon.co.k for a few pennies cheaper.
This is a lovely game that has endured much playing with, without any visible damage to the blocks, in my opinion this would be a great addition to a sleepover or party, recommended!
