The Jenga Pass Challenge — a ‘new and improved” (as they say) version of the ever popular Jenga game of days gone by.

As a child, do you remember playing Hasbro’s exciting game of Jenga with your friends or family members? If you were a child of the 80s, then surely, you do. Let me refresh your memory about the game of Jenga…

  1. each player will take a turn removing one block at a time from a tower of blocks (54 blocks total)
  2. each time a player removes a block, they are required to place it on top of the tower, which creates an even taller structure (also more unstable).

The game comes to an end when the tower crumbles, or if any piece falls from the tower, except for the block that is being pulled out to move to the top.

The winner would be the last individual that successfully removed and placed a block.

Fun fact: The word “Jenga” is a Swahili word that means “to build.” Pretty cool, right? You can still find the original Jenga in the stores, but

Hasbro gaming has stepped it up a notch. They’ve released something that has a twist to it – it’s Jenga Pass Challenge by Hasbro.

How do you play Jenga Pass Challenge?

With Jenga’s Pass Challenge, you’re probably going to forget all about Jenga, because this one is even more fun.

  • During this game, you’ll be removing wooden blocks from the platform in order to build the tower.
  • Then you’ll be eliminating it block by block while holding one of the platforms handles.
  • While removing the blocks, just as in the previous version of Jenga, you’ll need to have a sturdy hand – as you’re passing the platform to the next player, you’ll need to make sure it doesn’t crash.

The platform has two handles on it and comes with a stabilizing stand to help you out.

The game includes a total of ten challenges like the Chopstick Challenge, Blind Block, and Flamingo Fumble.

What do you get in the box when you buy the Hasbro Jenga Pass Challenge game?

  • a total of 27 hardwood Jenga blocks
  • a resealable plastic bag so that you can safely store the games pieces
  • also with the blocks, you have the
    • passing platform
    • stacking stand, and of course
    • the instructions

Recommended ages for Jenga’s Pass Challenge

This game is recommended for ages 8 and up.  Some adults, though–including me–love to play Jenga’s Pass Challenge, especially since it brings back memories of the good old days.

Even if there’s just two of you, you can still play a good game of Jenga.

Final thoughts on the Pass Challenge by Hasbro

One notable drawback (and it’s not the game itself) is that there’s only a ziplock bag that’s provided with the purchase to store the blocks. Still, there’s the stand that the pieces go on. But it would be better if there were a box or some other kind of storage container to make it more convenient to store.

Jenga was one of the popular board games that teachers had on their shelves. It’s the game that many children loved playing during their free time. When I originally saw Hasbro offering another Jenga game, I just had to get it. I’m glad I did, because now, it’s one of my children’s favorite board games and is something that we play quite often together. This updated version–the Jenga Pass Challenge makes it that more exciting.
