Jenga wooden puzzle is a Parker Brothers game of skill and strategy. First, stack the wooden blocks to build a tower. Then, take turns moving pieces until the tower falls over.
STEP 1: Setting the game: Set up the tower. First, shake the Jenga blocks out onto a flat surface. Then, stack the blocks in sets of three until you have built a tower that is 18 blocks high. Each new layer of three parallel blocks should be rotated 90° along the horizontal axis from the last layer.
STEP 2: Straighten out the tower: Before you play, make sure that the structure is sturdy. The block layers should interlock so that the tower stands tall without any external support. Use your hands or a flat, solid object to smooth out the sides.
STEP 3: Gather players around the tower: Make sure that you have at least two players. Have everyone sit in a circle around the block structure. If you are only playing with one other person, then sit facing each other from opposite sides of the tower.
STEP 3: Playing the Game:
- Pick a person to pull the first block
- Remove a block. Carefully take one block out from any level of the tower except the top. Look for the block that is the loosest, or the easiest to remove, or that will least disturb the stability of the tower.
- Place each pulled block atop the tower
- Play until the tower falls. The “loser” of the game is the person who makes the tower topple.
- Rebuild the tower to play again!
