Or what I prefer to call as building blocks…since in Swahili, jenga is the imperative form of kujenga – “to build”.
The game’s mission is to stack and balance the blocks . Players then take turns to remove a block from the tower created earlier and add it on top, creating a taller and increasingly unstable structure as the game progresses.
Above is another version that my kids would do, they just make towers by putting the blocks alternately. 🙂
