Well actually it’s called Mega Hi-Tower, but it’s exactly the same as Jenga except its giant and designed for outdoor play.
It’s brilliant fun and certain family members will admit that they are eyeing it up as the perfect game for a family barbecue and are waiting to snatch it away from us should we leave it unattended.
When you build the wooden bricks up and it’s almost the size of an eight-year-old child. Knock them over and it does make a racket on a hard surface but that’s all part of the fun.
It is essentially 58 rectangular blocks but they are well made and have survived game after game. They come in their own storage bag and pack away easily.
The idea is that each player removes a block in turn, placing a block at the top of the tower with a maximum of three blocks per player. Blocks cannot be removed from the top completed layers.
The last player to place a stable block on the top of the tower wins. Whoever makes the tower collapse is the loser and rebuilds the tower for the next challenge.
Children under eight years are advised to play only with adult supervision and the game is not considered suitable for children under six years. As with any large garden item care is advised as the tower is designed to fall over.
We’ve had great fun with it. We have agreed to loan it out to family members as long as it is returned promptly. I am stating this for the record here as I know they will be reading this post.
