Much too difficult for children...and some adults
on October 13, 2004
This toy was given as a birthday present for my 9 year old son.
It has some faults. First, it is very difficult to set up, especially if you try one of the wacky setups on the instruction page. Second, we have never gotten past more than 3 turns before the whole thing collapses. Maybe we are doing it wrong but we don't have this problem with original Jenga.
The good thing is that my younger children LOVE to use the pieces as building blocks and can make some pretty cool structures.
I think the original should not have been messed with but may be just the challenge someone is after and as building blocks it is rather cool.
