1.0 out of 5 stars Flimsy stacking tower, February 27, 2010
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Hasbro Game - Jenga (Toy)
Jenga is a great game but this version ruins it. Instead of the typical plastic sleeve used for stacking the Jenga blocks at the start of the game, this version comes with a flimsy laminated piece of paper instead. This makes it extremely difficult and frustrating to create a straight tower at the beginning of the game. I would recommend purchasing the classic version instead.

I was wondering about that. Too bad amazon doesnt have the original version.

my 5 year old can create a perfectly straight jenga tower without any aids - so strange that this is causing trouble for you ...

Congratulations on your child's dexterity skills but I doubt many people want to take the time and wait for a 5 year old to build a tower between games. The purpose of a stacking aid is so you can quickly play one game after another, which the paper sleeve fails pretty hard at. There is a superior version of this game out there so people should purchase that one instead.

I too was curious. Just opened this version to play and was thinking the sleeve was missing. Instead of the sturdy plastic sleeve it is a flimsy paper sleeve. Fail!!!

Thank you all so much for the tip! I've never played this game and was going to buy to for my 5year old grandson who is very frustrated with playing games with others, so I sure don't want to get a game that isn't "all there." My goal is to find him something that he can fool around with on his own, something that excites his curiosity, not to frustrate him at the beginning.
