The precariousness of Jenga meets the charm of Donkey Kong.

In case you're not familiar with Jenga and Donkey Kong (young whipper-snappers!), here's a quick recap:

Released in 1981, Donkey Kong was the first successful "platform-style" video game, in which the player makes Mario ascend several treacherous girders in order to save Pauline. (Yeah, we always thought her name was Princess, too.)

Unveiled in 1983, Jenga is the addictive game of mental and physical skill in which players remove and re-stack the tower's blocks until some poor sap causes it to topple. It's also the most awesome thing to have happened to after-dinner gaming since the invention of playing cards. A few glasses of wine plus a shaky tower of wooden blocks equals instant hilarity.

Fast forward to today when some brilliant gaming alchemist combined these two legends of 80s gameplay into Donkey Kong Jenga!

Jenga: Donkey Kong is a blend of the classic games Jenga and Donkey Kong.
Donkey Kong Jenga is the perfect marriage of Jenga and Donkey Kong.

Get Mario to the top of the tower without toppling it!

Like a traditional game of Jenga, the tower in Donkey Kong Jenga is comprised of rows of wooden blocks. In this rendition of the game, however, they are called "girders".

The ends of each girder have a small hole in them for inserting the Mario game pieces. The first player to reach the top of the tower (without knocking it over!) will save Pauline and win the game.

Your goal is to be the first to get your Mario to the top of the tower.
Move your game piece up the tower, girder by girder.

The "spinner" controls gameplay

At the beginning of each turn, flick the spinner to determine your move. The pointer can land on a hammer, springboard, ladder, or barrel. This will tell you how many girders you must remove and safely place on top of the tower as well as how far to move your Mario.

The start of each turn begins by spinning the arrow on the spinner.
Players flick the spinner at the start of each turn to determine their move.

Plastic holder makes stacking easy

For a quick start, use the included plastic holder to help you stack the Jenga blocks in alternating rows of three. This simple device makes setting up the game a snap.
