Standard rules to play your Jenga® GIANT™ game

How to set up your Jenga® GIANT™ game?

First, you need to know how to set up your Jenga® GIANT™ game . Place three blocks next to each other on a flat surface with the wide side facing up. Then place three more blocks perpendicular to the first level. Continue building more stories, each one perpendicular to the one below and above it. By completing these steps, you will have an 18-story tower using all 54 blocks. An expert can build a tower 44 stories tall or higher!

Who makes the first move on your Jenga® GIANT™ game?

The person to set up the tower is the first person to make a move. Once that person has made their move, the person to their left is next.

How to move the blocks on your Jenga® GIANT™ game?

The main thing to keep in mind is that you can only use one hand at a time . Knowing this Jenga® GIANT™ game rule will help you avoid using both hands and keep an eye on your opponents.

Remove any block below the highest completed level while avoiding knocking over the tower. Anticipation builds to a crashing climax!

Can you test blocks before making your move?

Everything is possible when playing with your Jenga® GIANT™ game! During your turn, you can use either hand to touch blocks to find a loose one. However, keep in mind that if you move a block out of place, you must fix it before touching another block. It’s your move!

The Jenga® GIANT™ game rules establish that if you have successfully removed a block, you must place your block on top of the tower. Remember that a 3-block story must be completed before a higher one is started.

When does your turn end?

Once you have stacked your block on the top, your turn ends 10 seconds after or as soon as the next player has touched a block. Everyone keeps removing and stacking blocks until someone topples the tower.

Who wins?

Your Jenga® GIANT™ game requires skill and precision. The winner is the last player to stack a block without causing the tower to crash . If the tower topples, the player who crashed it will set up the blocks for the next game.
