My Take on the Game
My family loves games! We are constantly on the lookout for new games for game nights and opportunities for our family to come closer together. We actually have the original Jenga came and my kids simply love playing it. So when I was asked to review the new Jenga Boom I was all over it. In receiving this game it was easy to set up at first but we did have some challenges with the platform that the Jenga Blocks sit on as it seemed to be very sensitive. I played with it for a while it seems to be able to get it is where I needed to be. My kids loved the idea of racing the clock to play the game, but they did get a little bit frustrated that the timer went as fast as it did. Also, once the timer ran out the platform did not always explode as we would’ve expected, instead, once I started trying to reset the timer it would usually go off at that point. The game is differently set up for speed, so for anyone looking for a leisurely game, this is not going to be the right fit. I will say that even though we did have some technical difficulties with the kids still enjoyed the game and we had a lot of fun playing it. For me though I think that I would still rather play the original Jenga game just because I enjoy taking the game at a more leisurely pace.
