My family is into watching the Family Game night show and my kids wanted those games that they played for Christmas. I went on a venture for games that were not terribly expensive.
I got name brand on all of them except the Jenga. I bought something called Jumbling Tower and BOY was that a MISTAKE.
I was in such a hurry I did not pay attention to the details on the picture of the tin it came in. If I would have looked closer I would have bought the actual Jenga game that was only $4 more.
What’s the problem? The pieces don’t line up square. It makes it take a lot longer to set up and for me it played weird. It was harder to find loose pieces, so the game did not last long at all. I also think because of how light the pieces are, when compared to jenga, that may have had an effect on it too. They are real light in comparison. So here is what happens if you try to set it up fast without the space between each piece as the picture on the tin shoes. Ya not so pretty right?
So my kids lost a couple pieces before I actually got my hands on it to try a game. I was upset at them well, until I played the game. Then it didn’t matter because I threw it away today and went and bought the actual Jenga game.
Live an learn. Oh well. It least it was only about $7 I lost on this purchase. It could have been a lot worse I guess.
Have a great day!
