Jenga BOOM, fast action family game night fun - review /giveaway

Like many families, we are familiar with Jenga. The precarious tower of carefully placed blocks sways and leans until one misplaced block causes it all to come tumbling down. Now there is a new version of Jenga, Jenga BOOM!

No this game will NOT explode on your table, but you have to be quick and adept to win. There are three keys to winning this game, speed, skill and strategy. Unlike the original Jenga, this version has a specific time limit. You can't sit and ponder for an unlimited time.

Playing the game is easy to do. First you pull the string to set the timer. Second you set up the Jenga blocks. Next you take turns to move the blocks to build the tower. Players have to think quickly. In this version, players can sit, think and wait. Hesitation will lead to your downfall (or the tower's downfall.)

My kids really like Jenga BOOM. We played it on our recent family game night. They loved the part where the tower went BOOM. I think sometimes that they would wait and take their time just to see what would happen.

Personally, I like the idea that there is a specified time limit for this Jenga version. It keeps the kids engaged in the moment of playing the game. Also, it develops quick thinking skills and strategy that is important to foster in kids. In our house, we encourage discussion why and where block placement is key to the game.

Here's what you can expect with Jenga BOOM
