As if Jenga couldn't get any harder, now you've got to balance the whole stack of blocks on a swaying bridge! That's the premise of Jenga Bridge, a new twist on the classic skill-and-action game. This version plays the same, except there's a wooden bridge underneath the blocks. You'll need to set up the bridge before you play, which is easy to do. Build the block stack in the center of the bridge where it says "Jenga". It should be centered and not leaning when you're done. You can twist the bridge's pegs to adjust, if needed.
Once set up, use one hand to remove a block from anywhere below the highest completed layer. Place that block on top of the tower. If it falls, you're out. If it stays, it's the next player's turn. The last player to stack a block without causing the tower to crash wins. And if you're playing solo, try to beat your own highest tower.
This has the challenge of a regular game of Jenga but the added challenge of the swaying bridge. The bridge makes every move seem like it could be the last one. If you're a fan of Jenga, but you want some variety in your gameplay, then you'll like Jenga Bridge.
Jenga Bridge is for one or more players ages 8 and up.
Don't be alarmed by the huge sheet of instructions. It's actually just the two-step instructions in multiple languages.
For younger players, Hasbro also has a new Risk Junior, sold separately.
