My friends got me this super sweet Donkey Kong Jenga for Christmas:
The game is played in one of two ways: either by following the traditional rules of the game or by using the included Spinner to play Donkey Kong-style!
Up to 4 players take turns on the Spinner which determines how many Jenga block “Girders” to remove from the stack and how many Girders the player’s Mario climbs at the end of each turn.
Each of the 4 Mario game pieces are attached to pegs which can then be inserted into the holes at the ends of the Jenga blocks, giving the illusion of Mario climbing the construction site!
The goal is to reach the top of the stack and save Pauline from that crazy ape, Donkey Kong, yet again. The player that reaches the top or is closest to the top when the stack falls wins.
Players can strategically remove Girders out from under the other players’ Mario game pieces to keep their opponents from reaching the top first!
A brilliant combination really, marrying these two classic games together!
