Advantages: Great fun for all ages, Affordable, Many other uses for the Jenga blocks
Disadvantages: None at all, Brilliant game
There are many different games that I can remember from my childhood, and my favourite is jenga! I still play Jenga now on rainy days. Its a game that comes out on family occasions such as birthdays and christmas. Jenga is such a simple, yet exciting game. Its a game for all ages, but you have to have a steady hand.
Jenga can be purchased from many stores, the price ranges from £5-10 depending on where you buy it. Its a good value game seeing as you can pay £20 for a board game. The jenga I have was bought when I was little so I haven't had to buy another Jenga since. Its a long term investement because the jenga blocks are solid and could never break (within reason).
Whats it Like?:
The aim of the game is to build a tower with the blocks. You remove one brick and place it on the top, some bricks will be easy to move and some will be hard. The person who knocks the Jenga over is the loser. Its a game that needs skill and patience. You can play with a few people so its a good family game. Its really fun because sometimes the tower looks like it is going to fall, but then it won't and the pressure is on the next person's go. The laughter that can be had from the game is something that always makes me happy. The sound of the tower crashing over is loud and always makes me jump even when I know it is going to fall. When my family play this game there is so much laughter, shouting and general fun. Its such a simple idea for a game but is one of the best. The tower is easy to construct because you are given a cardboard tray to stand up the blocks.
The jenga bricks are made out of wood and have the words Jenga wriiten on the side. They are not very heavy but feel very solid. As a kid I also used the Jenga bricks to build castles, roads and just stack them in different ways. I have had so much fun with the blocks. Its amazing how much fun can be had with a pile of wooden blocks.
I would recommend you get yourself some Jenga, its a game for all ages and can pass the time nicely on rainy days. I have had so much fun over the years with this classic game. I can guarantee this will make you smile. I am going to be giving Jenga a huge 5 star rating. The instructions for how to play the exact rules is on the packaging, they are detailed yet simple so you know the rules. Thanks so much for reading my review, I hope it helped you decided on your next game to play with your family!
Summary: My favourite game, and its really simple!
