Donkey Kong Jenga: Two Universes Collide

Donkey Kong Jenga

For some considerable time I’ve maintained the viewpoint that what board games really need right now to shake things up a bit would be a product which seamlessly combines everyone’s favourite 8-bit primate with the sheer visceral thrill of gently tugging uniformly-shaped pieces of wood from a precarious tower.

Step forward American board game manufacturer USAopoly, who’ve only gone and done the impossible: released a version of Jenga themed around Donkey Kong! What’s more, they’ve even introduced a brand new game mode in which you “climb the girders with your Mario mover” in a vain effort to save Pauline from the eponymous barrel-hurling subhuman.

Sounds very exciting: and indeed, the manufacturers guarantee “edge-of-your-seat excitement”, something which you just don’t get with a standard Jenga set.
