The idea is great. However, the blocks are painted, which creates two problems: 1) the plastic Mario pieces don't fit in the holes as they should because the holes are too tight, and 2) the blocks are very wobbly because they are not level like the classic Jenga blocks.

Avoid this one and buy the original. Very disappointed.

Jenga and old school Donkey Kong. Two things you wouldn't necessarily associate with one another, but they go together perfectly!

The game comes with your regular, wooden Jenga blocks, but each is dyed black with red scaffolding painted on either side and holes drilled in each end. You can play standard Jenga with this set, or play with the DK rules. Each player is given a colored Mario player piece, and the wheel is spun to decide how many pieces must be removed, and how many scaffolds Mario may climb on that turn. Pieces are moved to the top of the stack, making it harder and harder to reach Daisy with every turn. The first player to reach the top wins, or the highest player on the tower before it falls. It's Jenga. People get it by now. It's just as much fun, and as maddening as ever.

The downside... Your Mario pieces have a little post on them that must be inserted into the Jenga blocks as you move up the tower. The holes are a little too tight, so you risk toppling the tower just by advancing your piece. Like most Jenga sets, it needs to be worn in to really be fair and fun. The blocks are also a little rough and can catch on each other. Both aspects can be frustrating until the set is worn in.

This really is a brilliant idea for a piece of retro gaming merchandise, and a solid game to boot.

This is a LOT of fun! I'm 25 and my friends enjoy this. It's annoying that the spinner isn't more durable. The Mario pegs don't fit in all the holes initially; you merely have to break the set in. It's worth doing so.

Purchased this as a gift for someone who is a fan of old arcade games and board games. The product is cute, but not ready to play. The holes Mario is supposed to fit in as he climbs the tower are not fully drilled out, making this aspect of the game unplayable. Sadly for the price you would expect better quality.

Its like regular Jenga except you have little plastic pegs that you move up the tower. The problem is that the pegs don't fit into the holes! You are building this precarious tower, and then when you try to insert the peg and it comes crashing down. We "whittled" the pegs with a pen knife so we could play, but it was frustrating. I can't believe the manufacturer didn't notice this! We still enjoyed ourselves.

This game has Mario pieces that are placed on the sides of the tower by means of holes drilled into the block ends. The pieces have plastic posts that are supposed to slip into the holes. The problem is, the holes are not milled large enough for the plastic posts to slip in and out easily. I found I could not make the posts fit into a few of the holes at all, but at least half you have to apply pressure to make the post fit. This is so annoying. If you chose to hang Mario on a loose block in the case of the tight holes, the block shifts out, if you chose a snug block in this case, the balance of the tower shifts. Also, the spinner is poorly crafted and very hard to spin smoothly. This game is a little more expensive than regular Jenga. Clearly the added margin on the price goes to Nintendo licensing, not quality design.

The "Donkey Kong" variant of the game is marred by a fatal flaw. The drilling of the holes in the game pieces is so uneven that it makes moving your little Mario guy almost as dangerous as removing blocks from the tower.

We pretty quickly abandoned the giant monkey for "standard" Jenga, which was fun, but whether due to our inexperience with the game, a less-than-perfectly-stable table, or the blocks themselves, the tower was always *very* rickety. We never got anywhere close to the tower depicted in the picture here before toppling it.

I've never actually played the "traditional" Jenga, but I suspect we would have been better off with it, and that unpainted wood pieces would make for a less inherently wobbly tower.

I love board games, I love classic Nintendo, and Jenga's fun - perfect combination, right? Should have been... this is a clever combination of 2 classic games!

1) Sub-par construction. They didn't care enough to do it right. Not every hole is drilled as deep as it should be, and the spinner is definitely lacking in quality. It shouldn't be - you have to have it to be able to play the game! It was un-spinnable at first, but after detaching and reattaching the spinner, it loosened up enough to spin. Still not great. I wish it was on hard plastic instead of cardboard or had a quality spinner like in "The Game of Life" (a.k.a., "Life")

2) Poor/convoluted instructions. Like another reviewer, we resorted to implementing some house rules to soften up the game. According to the instructions, if you pull out a girder a Mario appears to be standing on, that Mario is supposed to be moved down ("fall") a floor. I am competitor when it comes to games but that rule is simply evil and only serves to needlessly sap out the fun! Even though it is a competitive game, it's fun to see the other players ascend the tower and I secretly hope someone will actually make it to the top, which in my experience would be extremely difficult if not near impossible for non-Jenga experts.

Another house rule we implemented is that if the spinner instructed you to remove 2 girders, we only made the player remove 1. Being unfortunate enough to have to remove 2 girders to only move up one or two floors is a bit ridiculous. We never got more than 3/4 to the top by the end and I thought we were playing well.

I am very disappointed with what seems like little more than a cash-in - using a Nintendo license and slapping "Collector's Edition" on the side. But, it *can* be a fun game and I don't regret buying it. I only wish more care and thought would have been put into the final product. If it weren't for the given flaws this would be a 5-star game for sure.
