DESCRIPTION: Jenga is a game of physical skill created by Leslie Scott, and currently marketed by Hasbro. Players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower constructed of 54 blocks. Each block removed is then placed on top of the tower, creating a progressively taller and more unstable structure. The name Jenga is derived from kujenga, a Swahili word which means “to build”. Jenga is played with 54 wooden blocks. To set up the game, the included loading tray is used to stack the initial tower which has eighteen levels of three blocks placed adjacent to one another along their long side and at right angles to the previous level. Once the tower is built, the person who built the tower gets the first move. Moving in Jenga consists of taking one and only one block from any level of the tower, and placing it on the topmost level to complete it. You then take it in turns until the tower falls down.
