Christmas Gift Ideas 2013
Who's a huge fan of family and friends game night? Me! We used to play games with our family and then our friends. It was a great time. One of my favorite games from my childhood was Jenga. The simple game of stacking and removing blocks always guaranteed hours of fun. They just updated Jenga...with Tetris®.

A marriage between Jenga and Tetris®, Hasbro has created Jenga Tetris® Edition ($14.99), recommended for age: 8+, 2 or more players. How does it work? The same as regular Jenga but since you've got the odd Tetris shapes that don't necessarily combine to make perfect square blocks, it becomes a little more difficult. The instructions say it's okay to leave little holes in the entire structure.
New Jenga with Tetris
The method of play is the same, remove a block and place it back up top. I like the colored blocks but the plastic texture is a far cry from the wood blocks I used to love. The plastic sometimes sticks and doesn't seem to slide as well as the good old wooden blocks. The colors are so much more appealing though.

Jenga Tetris® is a great addition to any Jenga lover's collection and makes for a fun family game night.
