  • Puzzling Fun with Jenga Tetris


    Jenga Tetris

    If Jenga and Tetris got married…

    This summer, Hasbro launched a new game that combines two stacking games that are icons in their own right. As you might guess from it’s name, Jenga Tetris is a fun new stacking game that comes when you combine the strategic piece pulling and stacking of the JENGA tower with the familiar shapes of Tetris.

    For the Jenga fans out there, the principles of Jenga Tetris are the same. You start by building your Jenga Tetris tower with the available pieces. You can see the different Tetris shapes and I love the bright colors (which make this more kid-appealing than traditional wood.)

    Jenga Tetris Pieces

    Anyone else hearing the Tetris music right now?

    As you assemble the tower, each layer may have gaps, especially if you’re using the zig zag pieces. Don’t put the pieces so there’s a piece point up or down into the next layer, otherwise that piece will be (virtually) impossible to remove. After your tower is built, it’s time to start pulling, pushing, and placing the Jenga Tetris blocks.

    Taking Jenga Tetris Piece

    I loved how you the strategy becomes a little more difficult with the Tetris pieces. You can’t always tell if the piece you’re trying to remove is a straight piece, an L-shaped, or a zig zag shape, so sometimes you may find yourself looking around the corner of the tower to get an idea of which piece you’re going to remove.

    Playing Jenga Tetris

    After you’ve successfully removed the piece, place it on the top of the tower and keep going. With color blocks, you can add fun twists to your Jenga Tetris game, like completing a whole layer of the same color allows you to choose who goes next.

    Jenga Tetris is a great game for families and kids over 8 years. The colors are bright, the pieces are different shapes, and the whole game seems younger and more “hip.” Want the game? Jenga Tetris is available in-stores now, as well as online from Amazon for just $17.29.

    One of the things that’s getting harder and harder these days is to entertain the kids without a video game, television, or some other electronic device. So many times, I recall the days of yore when a box of crayons was enough. Fortunately, there’s a great option for parents who want to provide fun and… Continue reading →
    A Healthier Fruit Snack: YumEarth Organic Fruit Snacks
    I remember when a bag of fruit snacks in the lunch box was like gold. It was the snack that every kid wanted to get with their lunch, and it was the snack that every kid would be willing to trade for to get it. Times have changed, though. While fruit snacks are still often… Continue reading →

    It was a big deal when I got my first locker. In high school, it’s all about locker placement. You absolutely did not want a bottom locker. Freshmen with lockers on the outskirts of the campus were envious of the seniors who had lockers right next to the quad. My first locker was at the… Continue reading →
    Let's Play the Bejeweled Board Game
    If you haven’t heard of Bejeweled from PopCap you’ve likely heard of at least one of the many games that have spun off the concept Bejeweled (I think) originated. Bejeweled is a computer game that I’ve played for years, where you strategically match 3 or more same-colored gems to earn points. It’s the kind of game… Continue reading →
