EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Jenga Pass Challenge, from Hasbro Gaming, is for 2 or more players, ages 8+. It comes with a passing platform, stacking stand and 27 hardwood Jenga blocks. It should be noted that a standard Jenga comes with twice that amount of blocks. But that's not the only difference! Assuming that you already know how to play the original Jenga, let's look closer at Pass Challenge. Play the game as you usually would, by removing a block and placing it on top, always careful not to allow the tower to tumble. But with Pass Challenge, you are holding the passing platform and handing it off to the next player. Your turn is not over until the platform is passed. If two players are holding the platform, and it tumbles, then both players lose! Wanna get fancy? Check out some of the advanced challenges - like, The Flamingo Fumble, Chopstick Challenge and the Zombie Stack. I am a big Jenga fan - I started out in the dorm rooms and have continued playing with friends during afternoon pub visits. For me, nothing replaces the original, but I must admit I like the Jenga Pass Challenge, and I think it's worth checking out. Jenga is tough as is, and when you add the passing challenge, the odds are stacked against you.

Is It Fun?
Yes. Jenga is a classic and the Pass Challenge has added a whole new fun part to the game.  
Who It’s For
