Do you remember the classic family game Jenga? I have great memories of me and my brother building the classic tower of wood blocks and trying to outdo our best tower. When my kids were smaller we picked up the classic Jenga and have built many towers with them. Now there is an updated version of Jenga that is sure to become a new classic. Jenga “Throw-n-go” takes the fun of building the wooden tower and adds a unique twist.
Jenga Throw n Go
This new version of Jenga is still just as simple to learn. We received Jenga Throw-n-Go from Winning Moves who are on a mission to bring back classic, retro, cool & fun games for the family.
You build the tower, roll the dice and start removing the wooden blocks. The dice will tell you which blocks you are supposed to remove on your turn. Roll a “blue end”, you better hope you can find a loose block on one of the ends that is the right color.
Roll ‘reverse’ and you don’t even get to play your turn. But is that a bad thing? Not necessarily. That gives you the chance to survive another round and hopefully someone else will knock down the tower by accident.
About Jenga Throw n Go
A favorite from the 80s is back with hot new colors! Gameplay is classic Jenga block stacking fun with a colorful twist. Players roll the die to determine which block they need to remove or they can reverse the action and force an opponent to remove one or two blocks!
What do we think of Jenga Throw n Go? It’s a hit! A great upgrade for an already favorite game!
This game is suggested for ages 8 and up. I’ve often played this game with younger players but since they have a hard time sitting very still, be prepared to restack the tower often!
There is no limit or minimum number of players to enjoy this game. It is more fun with several players! We have played the classic Jenga as a party game with the tower in the middle of the table. Then the different players just rotate around the table when it’s their turn. The classic crash of the tower just adds to any party atmosphere.
Contents: 54 precision crafted hardwood blocks, 1 game die, stacking sleeve to assemble the tower and printed rules. We found that it is easier to store the blocks in a rubber tote box or zipper pouch rather than always taking the time to stack them in the original box.
I received this game for the purpose of the review. No monetary compensation was received. All opinions are my own.
