Hasbro has come out with a new version of the classic stacking game, Jenga Boom. To add an extra layer of fun this game makes you move fast, because the blocks are stacked on a wobbly platform that is waiting to explode. Before each turn you start the detonator, and you have to move and reposition your block before the time runs out and the blocks fall.
Now if your favorite part of playing Jenga is carefully and slowly testing the blocks in the tower and then slowly moving a block to a new position this is not the version for you. In this came speed is of the essence, and if you spend too long deliberating about the perfect block to move you will end up letting the time expire and the blocks explode! My family found this a fun twist to the game, since it becomes about both speed and precision. It added some excitement, and also made it so there was more luck involved so it wasn’t the same winners every time.
The packaging is very cute too, since it is packaged to look like dynamite, complete with a fuse. This is a great family game that will result in lots of laughs, and is perfect for a family game night. You can buy it in local stores, or online at Amazon.
