The actual added game mode is a bit silly but it never detracts too much from the Jenga experience. Having to replace the Donkey Kong marker to the top of the tower after each piece is itself a fun struggle in dexterity. I would have preferred a pair of dice to the wonky spinner especially consider the cost of this "collector's edition".
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.
The only complaint I would have is that our spinner was kind of sticky and didn't spin very well. The complaints from other users that I was worried about like the paint being sticky didn't really factor in. The pieces are just as difficult to slide out as in the original game, and the Mario pieces don't have to be inserted that far into the holes to make them stick.
Our game did end without anyone getting close to the top of the tower, but someone could feasibly reach it if every player played very carefully. Spinning a result that makes you remove two blocks in a turn can be frustrating, and you can also spin to reverse the order of play which can leave out someone at the end of the turn order if you're playing with four people or more. Besides those minor hiccups and differences from the original game I still found this game to be a valuable addition to our collection.
Every time we play it starts seated. Within a few moves everyone is on their feet and out of the way. It is a fear of falling blocks and a heightened anticipation that gradually pushes all players as far away from the table. An amazing game, as well as an amazing social phenomenon to behold.
