Jenga is the ultimate game for people with a steady hand. It has 54 identical hardwood blocks which begin stacked in a criss-crossing tower. Each player takes turn removing a block from the tower and placing it on the top. Player to make it topple, loses.
Jenga is new-ish. It was created in the 1980s by Oxford Uni Student Leslie Scott. She based it on a building block game native to Ghana. The word Jenga is derived from the Swahili for “to build”.
This is the authentic, non-bogus Jenga in as endorsed by Leslie Scott. You may wish to know that the world record for levels from those 54 blocks stands at 40 levels. Good luck.
