How will you stack up against the laws of gravity? To begin, stack the genuine hardwood blocks into a sturdy tower, using the handy stacking sleeve. Then slide out the blocks one by one and place them on top of the stack. Is your hand steady enough to slide out the last block before the tower collapses? Quick and easy to set up, playing the Jenga game is a fun thing to do at home and is a favourite game for parties and game nights. Play it solo, with friends, or in teams! How do you Jenga?

What our experts think
The classic game of Jenga is a family favourite for good reason, offering fun opportunities to develop skills including hand-eye coordination, strategic thinking and decision-making. In order to be successful in the game, children are required to delicately manipulate the blocks and concentrate on their move from beginning to end.
This encourages logical and strategic thinking, as children explore the concepts of risky vs. safe moves, weighing up the risk against potential reward! The sense of achievement they get from successfully removing the block provides a clear motivator to continue the challenge. Inevitably, the moves don’t always go their way, which also gives children the opportunity to develop valuable social and emotional skills through understanding winning, losing and perseverance.
