Components

  • 54 Hardwood blocks
  • Loading nay to assemble tower

Object of the Game

Remove one block at a time from the tower, and then stack it on top. The last player to stack a block without making the tower fall wins the game!


Setup

  • Empty the blocks onto a flat surface.

  • One person uses this loading tray to build up the tower by placing layers of three wooden blocks at right angles to each other. When you finish, you'll have a solid, 18-story tower that can more than double during play!

  • Carefully stand this loading tray upright, then remove it so the tower stands by itself.


Game Play

The player who built the cower goes first. Play passes to the left.

On your turn: Carefully remove a block from anywhere below the highest completed story. Use only one hand! Then stack the block on top of the tower at right angles to the blocks just below it ,



Removing and Stacking Blocks

  • Remove and stack one block per turn. Remember - use only one hand (you can switch hands whenever you wish).

  • As play proceeds and the weight of the tower shifts, some blocks become looser than others and are easier to remove. You can touch other blocks to find a loose one - but If you move a block out of place, you must fix it (using one hand only) before touching another block.

  • While stacking, always complete a 3-block story before starting a higher one.

  • Your turn ends 10 seconds after you stack your block - or as soon as the player to your left touches one.

  • Keep removing and stacking blocks until someone topples the tower. A real pro can build a tower 36 stories high or more.


End of the Game

If you're the last player to stack a block without toppling the tower, you win.

The player who makes the tower fall gets to set up the tower for the next game.


Re-storage

Build a Jenga tower using the loading tray. Carefully pick up the loading tray and tower and place both inside the box.
