What It Is
Two stacking games collide with Jenga Tetris. This new game has replaced the wooden uniform bricks of Jenga with plastic Tetris blocks, or Tetraminos. It comes with 47 colorful blocks in six different shapes and sizes. To start, you set up the tower by stacking the blocks. Because the blocks are different sizes, there will be gaps in your tower. Just try to alternate the direction of the blocks by level. Once the tower is set up, you can start playing. You can play alone by trying to beat your highest tower each game or you can play with as many other players as you'd like. Either way, you follow the standard Jenga gameplay and remove a block from anywhere under the highest level, then place that block on top of the highest level using only one hand. One difference in this game is that if you can't place the block successfully, you may start a new level or place the block one level down. Just like classic Jenga, your goal is to keep building up without knocking down the tower. If you knock it down, you're out, and the other players rebuild the tower and continue playing. The last player left in the game wins.
Why It’s Fun
This combination of Jenga and Tetris is pretty challenging, but isn't that the point of both games? This is a good marriage between two classic games that fans of Jenga and Tetris will like playing.
Who It’s For
Jenga Tetris is for Jenga and/or Tetris fans ages 8 and up.
