Rules of Play

Jenga Giant

Jenga Giant blocks and bag image.

This Jenga version has giant sized blocks.

Jenga game consists of 54 precision-crafted, specially finished hardwood blocks. To set up the game, stack all of the blocks in levels of three placed next to each other along their long sides and at a right angle to the previous level. Once the tower is built, the person who stacked the tower plays first. The game ends when the tower falls in any significant way -- in other words, any piece falls from the tower, other than the piece being knocked out to move to the top. The loser is the person who made the tower fall (i.e. whose turn it was when the tower fell); the winner is the person who moved before the loser.


Players should keep their feet on the ground at all times and not stand on tables, chairs, ladders, or stools when playing this game. Children below the recommended minimum player age of 12 should not be allowed near the game during play. Never leave a stacked tower unattended. Be sure that no glassware is present in the playing area to avoid breakage when the Jenga Giant tower ultimately falls down. Please note that falling blocks may damage certain playing surfaces, so use discretion.
