|Hi-Tower - with volleyball to give |
you some sense of scale
My teenage son, Rory, was sitting beside me when the email came through offering me the chance to review a Giant Jenga game courtesy of Garden Games. I don't usually get asked to review things (apart from some books of late) and the last thing we were asked to test was a chip fryer this time last year. That went down rather well, but unfortunately we had to give it back. However, the good people at Garden Games were letting us keep this. So we said yes, please!

to removing the blocks?!
Despite being a teenager, and programmed to find most things boring, Rory got into the spirit of the game. The language was choice at times, but the three of us had a laugh together and there was the predictable male surprise whenever I was successful at removing a block.
I'm sure if Rory had been younger he would have adored playing separately with the blocks, creating his own towers, buildings etc. As it was, game over, he disappeared and left us to figure out which way the blocks went back into the bag.
Would we recommend it? Yes, I think this would be enjoyed by all ages (over the age of 6) and particularly in the summer when having a barbecue or party. Please note, as it's quite addictive, the competitive dads will be in their element!
