OVERVIEW OF JENGA
Jenga is a fun game that can be played alone or with friends! The game is super simple and doesn’t require much skill to play. To play Jenga, build up the tower, pull out the blocks, and avoid knocking down the tower.
Build the tower on a flat surface by placing three blocks next to each other and then stacking another three blocks on top, turning them 90 degrees. Continue stacking in this manner until all blocks make up the tower.
If playing with more than one person, determine which player goes first by flipping a coin or playing rock paper scissors. On their turn, the player must remove a block from the tower and place it on top in the correct formation. Whatever block the player touches must be removed, no matter how difficult. The player must not remove any blocks from the top three rows of blocks of the tower.
END OF GAME
Jenga ends when the tower falls over. There isn’t a set amount of playtime. The game could last five or 20 turns, depending on how strategic players are. There is no winner of Jenga, only a loser who is the player who knocks over the tower. If playing by yourself, beat your own personal score by trying to get the tower as high as possible.
